To review...

25 years old, 236 pounds, fairly lean (can see all six abs).

I eat a tight diet. Haven't taken any supplements besides Standard Process multi and protein in two years. Prior to that I did a cycle of Superdrol--big mistake. I've seen several doctors over the past year--all of which said there is nothing wrong and they cannot help me.

My wife and I haven't been able to have sex more than once a week in this entire span. You can imagine how this can wear on a relationship, and even with viagra/cialis, things just aren't kicking for me correctly, there is no rigidity to my erection at all like there was previously.

I would do anything to feel normal again, and I'm running out of places to turn to. In fact, I have run out. I've seen several endoc and urinol specialists locally, and each turns me away as quickly as the last. Several seem to think this is a lesson for me to learn. Okay--lesson learned--don't $#)! with your endocrine system.

I did HCG, Clomid, Anastrozole, cabergoline, etc. Maybe something else can be done--I'm hoping. I don't know what to do at this point, it seems as though no matter what I have tried thus far, it hasn't helped 'enough'.

I'm not giving up hope, and I have had several pm conversations with a few leaders on this board that have been very helpful with locating other reading, etc--but it ends there. Please let me know if you have any suggestions--you have no idea how much I appreciate your time and assistance.


I can't read your third page very well because its so small, but does it say your T level is at 182? If so, that is a problem..

Secondly, I notice your LDH is high...while it doesn't appear to be astronomically high (my opinion as I don't know how to interpret this otherwise), LDH is a marker for Cancer...as well as other diseases such as meningitis, pancreatitis, and HIV...basically it signifies that there is a high level of tissue breakdown/turnover going on in your body...I would certainly look into this more....

Do you regularly perform testicular exams on yourself? If not, you need to start and learn how your balls feels while normal:


Edit: clarified LDH range


After doing more research on your other high liver markers, it looks as if you could possibly have a liver disease (hepatitis?), due to your AST and ALT levels also being high (note liver disease could also explain the high LDH)...this would also explain your poor lipid profile, and even your testosterone issues (if it truly is 182 ng/dL)...


That will get you started...I would look into it...
