I have no sex drive, I have been more tired than usual lately even with consistent sleep(same length and time of sleep). I have been on a slow cut the past couple of months and the problem has not changed. I have been losing more and more strength(squats and deadlifts way down). I have tried increasing my fats but with no luck.

Just got a physical, total testosterone came back at 89 ng/dl (range, 241 to 827). Slightly elevated liver enzyme (AST 42u/l, range is under 37) Alt tested at 32 u/l, range is less than 78. Honestly don’t really know where to go from here, physician was worried about how low that number is, she didn’t seem to think it was a diet issue or a thyroid issue. I have insurance but it’s not great. Located in NJ. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Start with a full hormonal blood screen listed in the sticky. Need LH + FSH at least. Probobly get E2, DHEA, prolactin to name a few.

Did you get a copy of your labs? If so can you post them?
