Hi, im 19years old, 20 in 2 months. I always been suffering from tiredness, low sex drive, low motivation ,etc. After tons of doc visits, finally an endo told me I might have hypotryroidism.
MY TSH 5.5 when tested, which showed sign of hypo, but my T3 free and T4 free were mid-range. He still put me on 75mg synthroid, but two month later,no improvement. Today he doubled my dose.
But here is my concern. My testosterone last year was tested at 475. 2 month ago 450 and 2 week ago at 383. Free testosterone is always at the lowest of the range.
While talking about my shitty level to my doc, he say that hypotyroidism lower testosterone and that curing it can help boost testo. I understand that hypotyroidism cause low test, but I dont see supplement t4 as curing the problem, more like covering it. synthetic t4 is not gonna build your thyroid gland again.
So how does synthroid can help boost testo? And will it make THAT much of a change? thanks.
PS: I want to had that my cortisol scored in the mid 600. estrogen was good.
