-describe body and facial hair - thin hair on legs/chest/stomach/back. Facial hair ok probably a little light for my age but i am fair.
-describe where you carry fat and how changed - fairly even fat distribution
-health conditions, symptoms. I lost a testicle in my early teens so have only ever had one from the age of 13. Suffered from a few spells of depression but aside from that no major low T symptoms. Training hard and eating well for the last 3 years but feel like i am 'spinning my wheels' a bit. If i eat to gain i put on a lot of fat and when i try to diet i lose a lot of muscle.
-Rx and OTC drugs, any hair loss drugs or prostate drugs - No
-lab results with ranges - All my blood work has been done by the NHS in the UK so i have not been able to specify the exact tests so lab work is limited.

Cholestrol Serum 2.4

-describe diet - well balanced diet following general bodybuilding macros
-describe training - 4-5 weight session per week with 1 HIIT session and maybe a low intensity cardio session. Play Squash once a fortnight.
-testes ache, ever, with a fever? - No
-how have morning wood and nocturnal erections changed - no change, their occurrence is probably 50/50.
I have suspected low T for a while based on my medical history and the lack of changes to body compostion and strength gains i can make in the gym despite everything being dialed in and training hard. I do make some progress it is just very slow in comparison to most other serious trainers that i know. Following my blood work last week to check my testosterone i am considered to be in range with no further action required. This means i will have to self medicate should i wish to make a change and any advice would be appreciated.
