Diet is not ultra healthy. Eat fast food probably twice a week the rest are at home with a balace of protien fats and carbs. Could possibly eat more fruit and veg and cut out some sugar.
Have done weight training on and off over the past 15yrs during that time I have always played some type of recreational sport once or twice a week. Havent been to active since i moved to Canada (july 11)but just joined a gym.
Things to do:
Track down a doc to do the E2, DHT and Dhea-s tests.
Prob try and get t3 and t4 tested at same time.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated
