I am an 26 year old male who is willing to share his life story to you guys and hopefully get some support or clues of determining what the heck is wrong with me.
I have been suffering from low T levels for the past 3 years and have been in an ongoing blood test journey with my doctors and endo to identify the potential cause. It has come to a stage that I am suffering major brain fog, depression/anxiety, low self esteem, memory loss. no sexual desires and has been effecting the joy of my life. I don’t even want to get out with friends or do anything.
I have been doing more than 20 blood test and changed by GP over 3 times to see what others can recommend and came to a stage where I don’t know what to do anymore. I don’t just want to do TRT without figuring out the underlying cause as my blood result does show some indications of something not being right. It’s just that the GP can’t puzzle it out of what it could be.
I am 26 year as mentioned above and weight 75KG pretty lean. Do 5 days a week medium intensity workout and throw nearly always a bit of cardio which can be 10 min HIIT or 15 min Slow steady. I gain weight very easily and therefore try to keep my diet on point.
I have tested so many blood samples, but the things that have been pointed out of balance are
- LH which is extremely low (<1)
- Low T (2.9nmol/L & 6.7nmol/L)
- Low Calc. free T (0.056 & 0.169 nmol/L)
- Low white cells (3.2)
- Consistent high Bili and ALT over the last 3 year
* Bili (33)
* ALT (52)
high Urea (10.2,mmol/L)
I have done a CT scan of my pituitary gland showing normal. Ultrasound of my scrotum which appeared to be normal (only 2mm cyst on epididymal head is suspected). Doctor mentioned not to worry about this. Also did a semen analysis which all appeared to be normal.
The following appear to be normal, Glucose (4.8 fasted), FSH (3), prolactin (154mU/L), Thyroid (TSH) 2.17, Iron (20).
I just can’t figure out what is causing me to feel so down not willing to do anything. Please let me know if you want any additional results or have some recommendation what to do because i am seriously running out of options.
