I’ve been wanting to get tested for a while now so this year during my physical I asked my doc to test. (Internist) Results came back this week and I was shocked but also weirdly relieved to maybe have figured this out.
Total T was 174 - range is 250-1100 ng/dL
Free is 30.8 - range is 35-155 pg/ml
I’ve been having extreme fatigue for the last few years (getting worse) along with increased irritability (anxiety my whole life), unable to get lean like I could 8 years ago, feel weak a lot, joint and soreness in muscles, stiff and achey in the AM, sex drive has decreased. I sleep OK for a guy with a stressful job and two kids but I also eat healthy and work out like a madman including weights and martial arts (bjj) several times per week. I’m 5’10, 175 around 15-16%bf
Vitamin D is low and blood was taken at 3pm.
I’m going back in to discuss tomorrow, would appreciate any advice/thoughts/pitfalls/questions, etc.
