Hey everyone, I'm a 38 year old guy, and I've been diagnosed with low T. I've got an appointment with my doc tomorrow to discuss treatment options, and I'd like to have plenty of good information going in there.
Age: 38 (39 in July)
Body Hair: pretty thin on the arms and legs, shaggy on the chest & back, facial hair is "normal" I guess
Where I carry my fat: From my chin to my groin, and not much anywhere else. It's been growing steadily, but it's not until the past year or two I have been trying to get rid of it.
Health Conditions: Obstructive Sleep Apnea (treated with CPAP), borderline hypertension (high enough to keep an eye on, but not to medicate yet), can't get it up in the evenings (mornings OK though)
Current drugs: Cialis (recent scrip), occasional Naproxen for DOMS, OTC Allerclear (generic Allegra)
Diet: I try for 3000-3500kCals/day, including plenty of meat, fish, and dairy. Some days I'm admittedly over that.
Training: I'm doing a hybrid 5/3/1 and Westside 4-day split, including a deload every 4 weeks.
Lab Results (morning blood test, fasted):
Glucose 97MG/DL (65-100)
Cholesterol 113MG/DL (<200)
Triglicerides 107MG/DL (<150)
HDL Cholesterol 34MG/DL (>39) - LOW
Calculated LDL 58MG/DL (<100)
Risk Ratio 1.69 RATIO (<3.55)
Hemoglobin A1C 4.9% (4.0-5.6)
Estimated Average Glucose 94MG/DL
PSA, Total 0.2NG/ML (<4.0)
FSH 3.7MIU/ML (1.3-11.4)
LH 4.5 MIU/ML (1.2-7.8)
Testosterone, Total 206NG/DL (241-827) (The doc called this "somewhat low" btw)
Morning wood is there some of the times - it's definitely there after a heavy lower body day at the gym, but on other days it's sometimes iffy. Non-enhanced ability (and desire) to perform in the evenings is hit or miss, with miss being more often of late. This is especially bad since the wife & I are trying to get pregnant and not wanting or being able to do the deed is a pretty hefty roadblock.
Any (useful) advice would be helpful. I'm already reading the "threads that should be stickied" trying to get up to snuff on this. Thanks in advance, everyone!
