26 year old male- went to doctor a year ago due to weakness and hair balding on scalp, did some blood work and discovered pottasium to be high at 6.7 on several occasions, aswell as elavated liver counts. over the months we determind it to be due to muscles deteriorating, i also have elavted coritsol levels at 27 (5-23). The specalist wants to do a muscle biopsy , however a few weaks ago i started having problems with errections and stuff so i thought to ask doctor about testosterone levels.
My total tesosterone came back as 270 range(170-1100), doctor was not sure if the testosterone would be causing my symptoms, saying that they can range greatly among different people and everyone develops symptoms at different ranges, however he was willing to do more blood work to find out.
currently iam waiting to get blood results for lh/fsh,prolactin, f/t testosterone,adh,ast,alt and full liver panel.
Based on the fact my symptoms are hair loss, muscle loss, weight loss rapid followed by weight gain, hot flashes, and then my other set of symptoms, headacks, pressure in back of head, very bad sinus problems, and visual disturbances.
I think it sounds like low testosterone due to a pitutary problem and i should hold off on the muscle biopsy until we look into the low testosterone further, however doctor was unsure if a testosterone of 270 would cause problems. would like some opionions.
