Hi everybody. Since two years I was feeling horrible compared to before and found out my Total T and especially free T are quite low. Cortisol is relatively high, prolactine is on the high end, SHBG is relatevely high. I’ll post some of my lab tests by dates:
30.03.2017 - I was feeling well and I was rocking
Testosterone S 18.14 nmol/l 9,90 - 27,80 ECLIA
Free Testosteron S 22 ng/l 8,30 - 40,10 RIA - the last time this shit was in good range for me
Cortisol (morning) S 461.3 nmol/l 133 - 537 ECLIA
Общ холестерол (Chol.) S 4.76 mmol/l 3,5 - 5,20 PHOT
HDL- Холестерол (HDL-C) S 1.58 mmol/l >1.5 PHOT
LDL - Холестерол (LDL-C) S 3.07 mmol/l 0 - 3,35 PHOT
Estradiol S 40.58 pg/ml 7,63 - 42,60 ECLIA
From here on I was feeling like shit, low energy, low constant depression, inability to focus on my work, problems at my love life, not feeling manly, feeling emotionally week.
Estradiol S 32.49 ng/L 7.63 - 42.60 ECLIA
Testosterone S 12.91 nmol/l 9.90 - 27.80 ECLIA
Cortisol (morning) S 651.6 nmol/l 133 - 537 ECLIA
Free Testosteron S 9.5 ng/l 8.30 - 40.10 RIA
LH S 3.43 IU/L 1.70 - 8.60 ECLIA
FSH S 1.28 IU/L 1.5 - 12.40 ECLIA
Prolactin S 367 mIU/L 84.80 - 318 ECLIA
Estradiol S 28.76 ng/L 7.63 - 42.60 ECLIA
Testosterone S 14.11 nmol/l 9.90 - 27.80 ECLIA
Free Testosteron S 11 ng/l 8.30 - 40.10 RIA
SHBG S 30.25 nmol/l 18.30 - 54.10 ECLIA
Желязо S 17.48 µmol/l 7.20 - 27.70
Ferritin S 231.4 µg/L 30 - 400 ECLIA
25-OH-Vitamin D S 25.35 ng/ml ECLIA - now is above 60!
LH S 4.06 IU/L 1.70 - 8.60 ECLIA
Estradiol S 27.79 ng/L 7.63 - 42.60 ECLIA
Testosterone S 13.68 nmol/l 9.90 - 27.80 ECLIA
Free Testosteron S 13 ng/l 8.30 - 40.10 RIA - Not so bad, still low
Магнезий (Mg) S 0.77 mmol/l 0.66 - 1.07 PHOT
25-OH-Vitamin D S 21.48 ng/ml
Zinc in Serum S 14.2 µmol/L 9 - 18 AAS
25-OH-Vitamin D S 54.44 ng/ml ECLIA
Free Testosteron S 6.7 ng/l 8.30 - 40.10 RIA - Horrible, but I slept bad for one week and had a lot of sex previous night. Can be because of that?
My libido is still fine, I can do it 3-4 times a night, but still less good than before. I wanna get back my energy, my vigor and energy for life. I’m taking now Tongat Ali. I do everything natural to increase my T - good food, enough water, sleep, strength training etc. I feel slightly better from taking the Tongkat Ali but, still not enough. My libido got much better, but this is not enough for me. A friend of mine increased his free T by 25 percent for one month after taking the same Tongkat I take now. I’ll do myself a new test after two months on Tongkat Ali and I have ordered for six more months.
IF AFTER this six months my free T doesn’t have a significant improvement, I need to go to TRT in my oppinion. What do you think? The problem is I live in a country with fucked up health care - Bulgaria. There are no doctors here that are willing to put me on TRT and that can make it correctly(I’ve been to ALL). They see my total T is within range and say you are fine, that’s it. But because TRT is complicated stuff, I guess I need to take something to lower estradioll, to get my dosages precised and so on I need an online clinic I can count on, especially if something FUCKS UP!
Do you think I’ll need TRT and which online clinic you can recommed?
