Blood Test Results, Comments?

I am not looking for medical advice. But hopefully someone more knowledgable will give me some insight on these so I can discuss the results with my doctor. It looks like my thyroid is sluggish (maybe one reason it is very hard for me to lose fat.) I am very concerned with the growth hormone level.

Again, I am not seeking medical diagnosis with this. I am looking for some help in understanding so I can be more informed when discussing the results with my doctor.

Yep, great article. But it didn;t address growth hormone. Any thoughts on that?

Your serum growth hormone levels tend to go down the older you get. It usually peaks in your teens (why you have those huge growth spurts then), then it’s all downhill from there.
