I am a 37 year old male, low energy, low libido, some anxiety and inability to focus at times. Some automimmune stuff going on, too (not sure if it’s related).
Some history. I saw a urologist 4 years ago with low T @ 156 ng/dL. He determined that I was diagnosed with secondary hypogonadism based on LH and FSH, and my uro started me on Clomid 25 mg EOD. Testosterone was up to 290 ng/dL after 2 months of treatment, at which point I stopped. In the meantime, I had 2 kids, and now finally following up on my treatment. Trying to determine which option presented by my uro would be most effective for me : 1) Clomid again or 2) HCG. What do you all suggest based on my most current lab work? Here are the numbers:
Total Testosterone: 273 ng/dL (Reference Range: 250 - 1100 ng/dL)
Free Testosterone: 52.6 pg/mL (Reference Range: 35 - 155 pg/mL)
Estradiol: 16 pg/mL (Reference Range 7 - 50 pg/mL)
SHBG: 21 nmol/L (Reference Range 10 - 50 nmol/L)
I appreciate any advice!
