Hi - new to the group, and have read some recent posts around this topic.
had bloodworkd done on 6/25 (early am)-
T - 203 (range : 241 - 827) - was flagged as low so had it tested again
7/6 (early am):
T - 386 (250 - 1100 range)
Free T 93.4 (3 - 155)
doctor said i was fine because Total T was back in range and Free T was ok (Free T was not taken first test). At the time, i took his word for it. However, since then have had low energy and a noticeable impact wrt drive. started a low carb diet which i have read coudl also impact T levels.
so my question is : does anyone know why there would be variance between the two tests? If you were in my shoes, would you seek a 2nd opinion? Looking back on this - if i was low in my first test; and then the 2nd test was still on the low end, that could be a problem.
I am 36. I read online that for a man in his 30’s - the total T should not be below 600?
any insight would be very helpful
