31 year old male. 6’2, 195lbs, 20-25% bf if I had to guess
As the title stated, I received my labs in the mail today and they were on the low side as far as I could tell based on my age. I’ll let you all be the judge.
Total Testosterone: 406 ng/dL (348-1197 ), low side of LabCorp’s range
Free Testosterone: 8.2 pg/mL (8.7-25), not even in an optimal range per LabCorp
All my other labs (CBC, CMP, TSH, Lipid Panel) with the exception of Vitamin D which was only 15.3 ng/ML were within normal parameters. I started taking 6000iu of Vitamin D3, and will continue to do this for a month and then drop it to 4000iu, and plan to spend about 20-45min a day in the sun.
For at least the last 5 years I’ve felt like I’m never well rested, and I have mental fog… this is what led me to getting my labs checked out. I’m a 31yr old healthy male… I work out 4-5 days a week doing a mixture of strength/hypertrophy workouts. I feel for the work I put into fitness… my results are kind of disappointing. I feel I could always do better, so I’m not blaming all of this on low test. I’m married and I wake up 3-4 days a week with morning wood… my sex drive is average. I have no issues keeping an erection. Just from a sexual side effects perspective, I’m a’ok. It’s the mild depression, mental fog, and less than optimal physique progress I’m wanting to improve.
Suggestions? I’ve already made an appointment for Tuesday to see my doctor re: these results. I want to make sure I do this the right way. Do these seem pretty damn low for my age?
