I have most all off the low T symptoms:
No morning wood, no sex drive,
tired, lack off motivation, lack of progress in the gym.
I am a disabled military veteran but would rather
not deal with the VA in this matter. I choose to test
for low T on my own and was very surprised by
just how low my Free T is. I want to know if this is
something to be concerned about and if I can do
anything about it.
My history: I used anabolics for 3 years ending 13 years ago. I did do pct but I figure I never fully recovered. Things have gotten worse with time. I am now being treated for PTSD/Bipolar I am on 600mg of Lithium and 300mg of Wellbutrin ED going on 1 1/2 years. My Lab results indicate primary hypogonadism high LH and FSH but low T.
My thyroid and kidney function are regularly monitored by my doctor due to my use of lithium carbonate.
Last TSH was 2.1 up from 0.9 when I started lithium. This test was taken when I was following a cyclic ketogenic diet, and may be elevated due to very low carb intake (30g day). My morning temp was 97.8, mid day 98.7
I use Iodized salt and have Lodoral on hand.
Any feedback is greatly appreciated,
