I’ve been reading here through everything trying to get an understanding before I post my question. My values seem to be low for everything. The doctor I went to see here in NC said its the lowest shes seen.
A few years ago, after baby #2 I started to lose some hair. At the same time I started grad school, got a promotion, started not being able to sleep, anxious all the time, stressed as could be. (New job, school and two young kids, who wouldn’t be?) So I wrote everything off to stress, even my mood swings and general sense of exhaustion 24/7. I started to talk to a friend and he recommended seeing a doctor and getting tested for low T. My diet is pretty good, 40% Protein, 40% Carbs and 20% fat, I also work out 5-6 days a week heavy lifting and running and rowing.
I am 5’8", 175lbs, 12% body fat. I “experimented” with some bodybuilding pills years ago, maybe 7 or 8 years ago in the military- Anavar. I am hoping I didn’t do long term damage, but I had two kids afterwards.
Long story short, here are my numbers from my labs a couple weeks ago. I haven’t started anything yet.
Cholesterol HDL: 56
Cholesterol LDL: 93
Total Test: 37 (range 264-916)
Free Test: 2.3 (range 8.7-25.1)
T4: 1.46 (range .82- 1.77)
Morning Cortisol 10.0 (range 6.2-19.4)
Estradiol: <5.0 (Range 7.6-42.6)
Vitamin D 27.9 (range 30-100)
Progesterone: .2 (range 0.0-0.5)
Insulin: 3.7 (range 2.6- 24.9)
T3: 3.0 (Range 2.0-4.4)
SHBG: 11.0 ( Range 16.5- 55.9)
Lutropin: 1.3 (Range 1.7- 8.6)
My doctor has prescribed 160 mg Test Cyp/week, 50mg Progesterone/night pill and 600UI HCG per week (day 5 and 6 injections)
So, any advice? Should I follow this for a while, is this abnormal blood work?
I am a little bit freaked out.
