Your fsh and LH is on the lower side, as with you test levels. Your estradiol is on the higher end. Low test with higher amounts of estradiol isn’t a good combo. how is your diet, exercise, sleep and stress levels. If this is your hormone profile under ideal conditions I would suggest going to a doctor to get prescribed an anti e. Studies have shown in individuals who had low test and high estrogen, sampling by lowering estrogen you can increase your LH/FSH which in return will increase your test. Estrogen is extremely suppressive of the pitaury gland.


Thank you for answer,
my eat habits are quite normal, 6-7 meals in day, lot of protein low in carbs moderate fat. I did not exercise in blood test times. My stress lvls are quite normal, not afecting me at all i think. I sleep 7-8 hours a day, but low quality. I often wake up in early morning hours before alarm.
But my hormonal problems started in puberty time so i dont think that my life stile makes these problems.


You need further testing. Test again for the hormones you have tested for, also get your thyroid levels checked. Get your blood count levels checked as well. Id highly suggest a sleep apnea test for you. If everything else comes back as normal, I would say its due to excess estrogen. Now why your test is low with seems to be related to your FSH and LH levels. I would try getting an appointment with a endocrinologist to see what can be done to bring your FSH and LH levels up. If its the excess estrogen causing negative feedback as your estrogen is quite high especially when compared to your testosterone I would look into anti es. Estrogen should be around 18 - 36 in men with Normal levels. In other words for your test levels It should be around 18 to 20. if your test levels were around 27 26 then around 30. You feel the best with test around 24 ish.
