Hi guys, I'm 24 and have been investigating my hormone levels since 2013. I have seen two doctors who referred me to two
specialists (public and private). Both specialists told me that due to my low SHBG levels it means my body requires less
testosterone to perform its functions. One referred to online advice as that from 'testosterone junies'. I also am certain I don't
testicular issues, only possibility would be secondary hypogonadism.
I have been suspecting low testosterne symptoms due to:
*Low energy and general feeling of lethargy
*Lack of passion for life (may be a sign of depression however)
*Declining athletic performance (I have not had a 'personal best' since 2011)
*Declined interest in sexual activity (currently at 1-2 times a month with girlfriend)
*Have been overweight for the past 4 years despite effort to become lean
Signs that I might not need TRT
*Fairly easy to have an maintain an erection
*Still feel strong attraction towards women
*I have quite a lot of body hair
*I can build muscle if I stay consitnent with gym/diet
Anyway, I attached my results, ranges vary but I used the ones from the latest one.
Other results like Vitamin D, Cortisol and hHG seem within range
I would really appreciate any adviec. I'm pursuing anti-depressants for my slowly declining mood and wellbeing over the years but I
would like to consider this as an alternative in case that treatment fails.
