I recently went to the doctor on suspicion of testosterone deficiency. The blood results have just come back, and apparently they show values within range. However, I am not sure if this test can be taken as sufficient to rule out a deficiency. I have read a fair amount both on here and from other sources, so am aware that it is a pretty complex topic.
There are no tests for LH or FSH - maybe these are not needed unless the previous ones indicate it? Anyone?
I have not discussed the results with the doctor yet, would like to be prepared with some information before hand. Hope someone here can chime in.
I am male, 44 years old, 176 cm, 73 kilos (I think that’s equivalent to 69.2 inches / 5.7 foot height and 161 pounds).
These are the relevant part of the blood test results:
