Hi all, I’m having a consult with my doc shortly. Wanted your opinion on some labs and how to proceed.
I’m 43 years old. Just had some labs done and here’s the interesting ones. Cholesterol/CBC/CMP was unremarkable and all within range.
DHEA-S 260 range:102-416
LH 4.1 range:1.7-8.6
Estradiol, sensitive 10.7 range: 8-35
SHBG 21 range 16.5-56
*** DHT 26 LOW (range: 30-85)
Total Test 308 (i’ve been as low as 275 prev), range: 264-916
Free Test(direct) 8.7 range 6.8-21.5
I’ve never tested DHT before so that’s interesting. I’ve been losing hair for years so assumed it would be high.
My 2 questions.
Should I jump straight to T shots, or since low DHT, ask for scrotal cream since I heard that can raise DHT?
I saw they now have access to Enclomiphene (the good isomer of clomid). Should I try that first and see if it can jumpstart anything naturally? Is it even worth pursuing or just raises some test results but you still feel like crap? (also my E2 is towards the low end so not sure that’s a good idea)
Thanks so much for your opinions!
