I posted a few months back but was unable to supply additional lab work requested. This time I will as I will be getting a bunch of lab tests done on Tuesday. Three Months ago my Total Testoserone was 424 n/g and my free was 62 p/g which is 6.2 n/g. Both are quite low for a 26 year old.. especially my free testoserone. I almost always have very low energy and ZERO libido for quite a while now which is very frustrating. Fully functional but no desire.
I will be getting my thyroid tested on Tuesday but the doctor only ordered TSH and not T3 and T4 even though I requested it. My insurance is Kaiser so they are very conservative and money pinchers. Will TSH alone tell me anything? They will also be testing for Diabetes and I think I may be Pre Diabetic which I've read will cause your testoserone to be low.. He also refused to check my adrenal/pituitary glands.. is there a way I can check these myself?
If everything comes back normal.. should a 26 year old start TRT? I wouldn't mind dishing out the $200 a month most clinics charge if it's gonna cure my energy/libodo problems along with not being able to put on muscle no matter how much I train. I was also suggested to do HCG Monotherapy to get a HTCP restart before I go full in on TRT. If I did start a TRT protocol, can I ever come off? Can I ever have kids? I don't plan to have kids for another 4-5 years but at the same time I'm tired of feeling this way.
The reason I say a clinic is because I figure my testoserone will come back somewhere between 350-450 and my insurance are not gonna do a thing unless it's under 250 and even then they will probably fight me tooth and nail over it.
Thanks for any help guys, would love to hear any advice or feedback. I'm desperate lol.
