Lets start simple. I am a 24 year old male weighing in at 298lbs. For the last 7 months i have been going to the gym 5-6 times a week and training hard for 2 hours or more. I have been eating at a caloric deficit etc. I became concerned after about 5 months where i had only lost approx 30lbs. So to the doc i went. He doubted me having low t but he ran the test anyways.
My test came back at 251.4. He only ran a test for Test Total. Also ran my thyroid and it came back at 4.05. Now i know both of these numbers suck. His lab says test will be 241.0-827.0 ng/dl. I called him after i received these results and he assures me both numbers are normal.
Although i feel at my age the testosterone is extremely low and my Thyroid number shows hypothyroidism. Per a recommendation from a trainer at the gym i asked if he would run a more in depth testosterone test and he again assured me my test was normal and we could recheck in 6 months. Opinions on what i should do? Im really struggling on building muscle and losing weight and im fairly confident these correlate.
