Hi All, new member here, great site btw! Just wondering if I could get some second looks at my blood work. I am not sure why my T is on the lower end but hoped for some guidance and input on my blood work. The doctor prescribed test cyp at 50mg twice a week. Gave me HCG because I told him we were thinking we might have another child but my wife and I decided recently we are done having kids. Hopefully I am posting this in the correct format.
I have just started the TRT this week. The symptoms I have are low energy and constant fatigue, no motivation at home or work, somewhat decreased sex drive, recent weight gain etc. I don't have an issue with erectile dysfunction at all but my erections aren't as solid as they used to be.
height 6ft 1
waist 42 inches
weight 270 lb
facial hair average thickness and regular growth, body hair not thick, some hair on chest none on my back. Starting loosing scalp hair when I was 18
seem to carry fat evenly, noticed increased abdominal fat in the last year
health conditions, Acid Reflux since childhood due to faulty valve, vericocele surgery done when I was a teenager. Diagnosed with sleep apnea at age 34. Use CPAP to control, have not always been diligent but have been for the past few years.
Nexium to control reflux, used propecia and minoxidil for 6 months when I was 35 (nasty stuff made my penis feel numb)
eat mainly chicken and low fat cuts of beef, have eaten a lot of refined foods my whole life, lots of bread products
lifted weights on and off since I was 15. Typical endomorph,fairly muscular although this is decreasing but always been covered by layer of fat. Strength gains come easy in the gym but weight loss has always been difficult.
Testes ached (one side only) when I was in my teens, diagnosed with vericocele and had surgery
morning wood rarely present, not sure about nocturnal erections as I dont wake up often in the night.
