Hey guys I'm 27 years old and I have low T. I was born with cryptorchidism of one testicle. The other one is fine. Anyways I've seen about four endocrinologists over the past five years. These docs claim there is nothing wrong with me and treat me as if I'm some sort of drug seeking addict. They all had lab work done on me and my T levels have shown every time to be low. One of my tests for example showed my
Testosterone, Serum valued at 272 ng/dL. Range: 280-800. The free floating T levels on the other lab work was under the range also (cant find that lab report right now) and the
TSH value was 1.230 uIU/mL based off a Range: 0.450-4.500
All of my doctors say I'm fine since i have secondary sex characteristics. One of my docs said since my T level is only 8 points off from the normal range which isnt a big deal. Being in my 20's I"m assuming my T levels are suppose to be in their prime right now. I no longer have a sex drive anymore, I'm always foggy (feel confused all the time as if I'm not in control of anything in my life), cant focus, dont have that aggression/pump/confidence/edge I had in my teens anymore. Always being foggy and not being able to focus has destroyed my life. I cant focus at work and can't focus in school. One of the doctors thought I had ADHD so they put me on some ADHD medication and that has not corrected my brain fog/inability to focus.
Aside from that, I have an acute form of gyno and I have a large amount of abdominal fat that does not go away regardless of how much I heavy weight lift and eat clean and do cardio. I've tried taking ZMA, Tribulus, mulivitamins, doing heavy lifts (bench press, deadlifts, squats), eating tons of protein. Nothing is working. I dont know what the F to do.
One of my doctors said she would never give me any T-replacement therapy because it would be harmful for me to start in my 20s. She said my body would stop producing the T its making and eventually my body could stop responding to the synthetic T. Has anyone ever experienced anything like this before? If so it would be great to hear about what you did. In addition, if anyone has any advice it would be great to hear it.
