I have been feeling like shit for the last few years: no libido, ED, too emotional at times, weak 1RM’s in the gym, brain fog, just to name some.
I am a otherwise healthy 27 year old male. 190cm, 84kg, 9% body fat(blood work was done at around 12-13% body fat btw). Never cycled thus far.
Here is the bloodwork that I have had done recently(added everything that I thought would be relevant):
SHBG - 60 nmol/l (11-52)
Total test - 28,0 nmol/l (8,8-32,0)
Free test - 306,0 pmol/l (198-619)
TSH - 3,3 mu/l (0,4-4,0)
FT4 - 15,3 pmol/l (10-24)
Prolactin - 274 mu/l (100-300)
Cortisol - 489 nmol/l (150-700)
ASAT - 39 u/l (<40u/l)
ALAT - 39 u/l (<45u/l)
Gamma-GT - 11 u/l (<55u/l)
Hemaglobine - 9.0 mmol/l (8,5-11,0)
Lots of vegetables, lots of viber, high fat, lots of eggs, lots of lean meat.
Usually around 120-150 gr fat, 150-180 gr protein and rest carbs. Totalling about 3500 calories when not cutting. Recently cut out walnuts, after eating 30gr a day for the last few years. Seems like walnuts increase SHBG?
5/6 days a week on some sort of push/pull/legs split. Main focus on hitting the compounds relatively hard and frequent.
Is TRT the solution for the high SHBG and prolactin? It feels like total test is on the high side, but is not coming to it’s right due to the SHBG?
Anything else that I should get tested? this was all drawn via endo. However, she claims everything is “ok” and therefor no action will be taken.
