Got Lab Work Need Help


#1

My free testosterone looks a little. Do you think any doc would give me TRT? I am 35 and have all the classic physical/psychological symptoms.

Estradiol 26.8 pg/mL 7.6-42.6 SO
Estradiol 081-253-2071-0
Free Testosterone(Direct) 9.9 pg/mL 8.7-25.1 BN
Testosterone, Serum 550 ng/dL 249-836 SO
TSH is 5.01 (I know this is high)


#2

why would you want to start on TRT when you have a known Thyroid issue which can have a major impact on your hormone levels?

why not get some more tests (free T4, free T3,Reverse T3, 8am Cortisol) and get that treated and see how your other levels react before jumping into a lifelong HRT treatment plan?

No doc should start you on HRT with levels like that. I wouldn't want to start with levels like that either.
