I’m 36 years old. Around 2 months ago I got my blood tested for Testosterone, along with some other tests like thyroid etc. While the other tests were absolutely normal, the testosterone test result appears to be a bit odd. Here’s the results:
Results Bio Ref. Interval
Testosterone, Free, Serum @ (RIA) 11.35 pg/mL 8.69-54.69
Testosterone, Total, Serum @ (CLIA) 477.81 ng/dL 164.94-753.38
Are the free testosterone levels normal?
Here’s the symptoms I’ve been experiencing since last 10-12 months or so, which prompted me to get my testosterone levels checked:
Impaired orgasm/ejeculation during masturbation/sex. I mean only 1 or 2 times out of 10 I feel satisfied after ejeculation…was absolutely fine an year ago.
Hair loss since last 3-4 years. Been using minoxidil to control it.
Excessive body hair. Dark, coarse hair.
Impaired sleep/insomnia since last 4-5 years.
Recurrent muscle injuries/strains after mild-intense workout.
My diet plan is pretty good. I use Optimum gold standard whey protein, multivitamins, eat fish, chicken, lots of veggies, nuts etc. My appetite is normal. I work out 4 days a week.
I consulted an endocrinologist about this later, but he said the tests appear normal and you don’t have to worry about it. He gave me some ginseng supplement and that’s it. Been using it since last 1 and a half months but no effect on the quality of orgasm.
What do you guys think? Please let me know if you have any questions reg. this.
