I made a post a few years ago but have neglected this important segment of my health and want to get after it.
-describe body and facial hair - Have great facial hair with several bald spots. I have fairly hairy legs and arms but don't grow much hair on my calves. I have very little chest hair.
-describe where you carry fat and how changed- I carry fat in my stomach and butt. I have maintained my body fat at around 12%, getting any lower then that is near impossible.

-describe diet -
I stick with a fairly clean eating lifestyle, mainly no processed foods. Meat, vegetables, fruits, nuts, etc. Breakfast is bacon and eggs; lunch is chicken, vegetables and fruit; dinner is meat veggies and fruit. I generally snack throughout the day on veggies, nuts, and fruit. My go to cheats is usually popcorn and dark chocolate. Looking through the forums I'm very concerned about my iodine levels.
-describe training [some ruin there hormones by over training] -
I usually do 1-3 days of strength training and mix running, swimming, HIIT, rock climbing or some other activity in between.
-testes ache, ever, with a fever? Slightly confused with this, but I haven't had a fever in years so I wouldn't know if they ache during...but I think i'm misunderstanding the question.
-how have morning wood and nocturnal erections changed-
If I don't masturbate or have sex for weeks this will happen on occasion.
I don't know if this is noteworthy but I hit puberty at a very young age, about 8-9 years old and was done growing height wise in 6th grade.
Some things I have always had issues with is sleeping, in middle school and high school I would lay in bed for hours trying to get to sleep and always fell asleep in my classes. This issue has now transferred to work and if it's really bad I will take melatonin to help fall asleep.
Other issues is a complete lack of motivation, I'm 27 and really don't care about anything. I'm convinced if I didn't workout 5 days a week and eat healthy I would have no testosterone period. Over the last several years I have had no increase in most of my lifts, I feel in a state of constant maintenance, the only exception to this is when I took a "testosterone supplement" for several months.
I just recently changed to a new doctor as well as insurance. The doctor wants me to take 2 more testosterone samples at 8am-10am since the last was at 4 in the afternoon. I'm also planning on getting a multivitamin to bring my iodine intake up, the results above were from when I was still taking one. I'm also going to retake my thyroid testes. I also have a thermometer on order to check my morning temps, at 4pm they were 97.7Â°F.
