Link to my last post: Just Turned 20. Need Help w/ Blood Work - #7 by systemlord
I’m desperate and frustrated with my endocrinologist and general practitioner. Last week I had a follow up with my endocrinologist about my blood work (attached in last post). My testosterone came back 385 ng/dl. I tried to encourage him that my testosterone was low and should be further investigated. He agreed that for my age, my testosterone is pretty low, but he thinks that I’m well within the “normal range” and thinks it’d be ridiculous to treat me. He says that he thinks my symptoms: (low libido, extreme fatigue, ed, sluggishness, tiredness, sad thoughts), aren’t cause by my testosterone levels, stating that you only see those symptoms when you are below the 250 ng/dl line. He ordered blood bio-markers for adrenal fatigue, pituitary adenoma, and a testicular ultrasound - I’m awaiting the results which I think will be a good thing to rule out. However, is it even a possibility for him to treat me for testosterone? Is there a law that would prevent him?
Secondly I tried to be proactive before hearing back from the endocrinologist by trying to get an appointment w/ Dr. Saya. I went to get my physical today and my GP refused to sign the physical form for Defy Medical. Stating that I shouldn’t trust an online company over a university hormone specialist. We got in a huge argument and by the end we were both very mad at each other. He even refused to sign the detailed record for the physical. Would you think it’d be enough to have the front office sign a record stating that I received a physical by him?
Lastly, is there a specific protocol that Defy follows for men under 30? I’ve already tried to do a restart myself with clomid for three weeks at 50mg/25mg/25mg. That didn’t seem to work as my T is still quite low.

Would you Defy would accept having the front office at my GP sign a record stating that I received a physical by my GP?
