Natural lifter - current metrics about 215 lb 6’0 male around 20% BF (mediocre diet to blame)
Had a 6 point hormone panel done and my levels are totally messed up. Took the DUTCH test so unit are a bit different than most people quote.
Testosterone - 50 ng/mg (lower end of range)
Estrone and Estradiol - 16 and 2 ng/mg respectively (very top of range)
5alpha androstenadiol - 500 ng/mg (double the max of range - maybe partly responsible for my hair loss…)
And cortisol - low all day and night
Thyroid hormones - TSH a bit higher than desired but other than that thyroid looks good
Gut health is good based on stool samples, and vit d is good. Only mineral I’m deficient in is extreme selenium deficiency. A tad low in iodine as well
How the heck did I get so messed up? Any advice for getting back on track so I can make some decent gains in training and have a stronger libido? Natural or prescription meds… would prefer not to use propecia to combat my extreme dht or arimidex for estrogen but I’d thats my only hope… well then I’d go for it.
Appreciate any input
