Hello all. I have a question. I suspected that my testosterone levels were low. I got tested by myself through a testing company and my results are below.
Testosterone, serum 138 ng/dl ref level 348ng/dl-1197ng/dl
Testosterone, free 4.25 ng/dl ref level 5.00-21.00
% Free Test 3.08 % ref level 1.50%-4.20%
I took these results to the doctor to get a formal diagnosis. I'm in the early stages of getting into TRT or whatever the doctor decides he's going to do for me. I'm feeling bad. Really bad and it's been going on a while. I also suspect my E2 is very high, but the lab didn't test for it even though I had an order for it. I'll have to go back and get it done. When I went to the doctor, he said that he might send me to an endo. I had lots of blood taken during the same visit. The very next day the doctor's office calls to setup an appointment in a week with a nurse practioner. My question is how long does it take to get a diagnosis and a treatment going? I'm really dreading even waiting another week. I really feel that bad. Is it normal to have me wait a week to talk to the nurse practioner about my results? I know it takes time, but this is very frustrating. I'm also curious about what the nurse practioner is going to do for me. Hopefully it's not to setup an appointment with another doc lol. The doctor seems to be fairly knowledgeable and not against TRT so that's a plus. What is your opinions on my situation and what the next step could be?
