In the thyroid basics explained link, check you oral body temperatures as suggested.
You should not go after T shots without more diagnostics and having a game plan for TRT that includes hCG and anastrozole [as needed].
You need these labs. The issue is your health and vitality and your doc has T tunnel vision.
LH/FSH - cannot be done after T injection(s)
CBC with hematocrit
AM cortisol [at 8AM please]
TSH -this and next two, if body temperatures are low
fT4 [please not T3, T4]
PSA - need to know if a problem and get a benchmark before TRT
have you had a DRE prostate exam?
Do you get cold easily?
Outer eyebrows sparse?
Always used iodize salt?
Vitamins that list iodine+selenium

Blood pressure and pulse?
TRT will work if done right. But you could easily not feel the benefits if there are problems with thyroid function or cortisol, rT3.
