Well I got sick about a month ago and the DOC wanted to do some bloodwork. Since I read Will Brink’s article “It’s In Your Blood” recently… I decided to get all my level’s checked… test and whatnot.
My results -
total testosterone: 383
free test: 1.84
test free: 70.3 (Not sure what this is??)
no t4 or t3
IGF-1: not taken(Doc didn’t know what it was and I didn’t either at the time)
I’m a little concerned at the Testosterone levels. 383 is low/normal. And the free test just looks crazy low unless I’m looking at it wrong.
Estradiol might be high normal?
Anybody with more experience in this stuff that can offer some advice? Are these levels something to be concerned about?
One thing to keep in mind is that I was sick just prior to the testing(don’t know if that makes a difference) and I was not lifting at the time either. I had been out of the gym for a few months.
I’m thinking I’ll lift for a few months and then go back and get tested again before supplementing. Sound like a good plan?
