Hi all, new to the forum and thought I’d share my bloodwork results. I’ll update as I talk with the dr’s and share their advice. Maybe if anyone has similar labs they can either share their experiences or gain insight from my journey, as I have from others here.
I’ve battled excessive fatigue, lack of motivation, low sex drive and brain fog for a few years now. After checking out the forum here I decided to contact Defy and get my bloodwork checked.
Small bit about myself, Im 38 years old, 6’0” and 180lbs, never have issues gaining belly fat but find it hard to gain muscle. I workout 4x/week which is mostly weight training and not much cardio.
I’m not entirely sure how to interpret the results but I also haven’t had my initial consultation with Defy. Labs are as follows:
Prot total 6.7
Total Test 674 (274 - 916)
Free Test 8.0 (8.7 - 25.0) Low
SHBG 89.6 (16.5 - 55.9) High
IGF-1 133 (83 - 233)
Estradiol 16.7 (8.0 - 35.0)
DHEA-Sulfate 52.1 (102.6 - 416.3) Low
LH 4.7 (1.7 - 8.6)
TSH 1.090 (0.450 - 4.500)
Free t4 1.84 (0.82 - 1.77) High
Free t3 3.2 (2.0 - 4.4)
Rev t3 pending
To be honest, Im surprised my total testosterone was that high, I expected it to be much lower based on how I felt.
Hopefully my Rev t3 results soon so i can schedule my initial consult and see where to go from here
