Weight: 160 lbs
Body/Facial Hair: Plenty of hair on genitals. Lots of leg hair. Small amount of naval “treasure trail” hair, on the sternum and near collarbone, and around the nipples (one of which has had a barely noticeable gyno lump since I was 14). I have less underarm hair than my brother and father. My facial hair is dark, but I can’t grow a thick beard. Hair on cheeks and neck is thin. Mustache and chin can be grown out better, but my brother and father both have thicker facial hair than me. I have never had much body odor, and I don’t have to wear deodorant because nobody every notices.
Fat: I don’t carry much fat at all. I actually look pretty ripped for being so skinny.
Health History: Never really get sick. I will get a bad headache that occasionally leads to vomiting once or twice a month. Generally, I feel unmotivated to get out of bed, little motivation to finish school, and general fatigue and mild depression symptoms. Somedays, I look and feel like shit: my hair seems dry and out of control, I get pale with dry skin, I feel more unmotivated and depressed than usual, and I have little appetite. My efforts to gain weight over the past few years have been failures. I wonder if my thyroid could be a problem.
Drugs: Never been on anything
Lab Results: I had a private company test my blood last summer, here are the results of relevent items:
Albumin, Serum- 4.9 g/dL 3.5-5.5
Testosterone, Serum- 578 ng/dL 348-1197
LH- 5.9 mIU/mL 1.7-8.6
FSH- 2.7 mIU/mL 1.5-12.4
Estradiol- 36.1 pg/mL 7.6-42.6
Diet: My eating probably needs to be more consistent. I generally eat 2500-3500 calories per day. Breakfast is usually oatmeal, banana/apple, and orange juice, but I sometimes sleep through it. I eat fast food as a meal around once per day, usually Chick Fi La fried chicken sandwich, fries, and soft drink.
Weight Gain Shakes
Sometimes a post-workout shake of whey, coconut oil, oatmeal, bananas, honey, blueberries, and milk
Almonds before bed
Training: I try to get in a Starting Strength workout 3 times per week.
I squat, deadlift, bench press, overhead press, and do pull ups. I’ve been lifting off and on since playing football for a couple of years in high school. However, my progress has pretty much stopped for a year or two, and my numbers aren’t very respectable.
My shoulders have mild either bursitis or tendonitis, depending on which specialist I talked to, and over-working them can cause annoying pain. Sometimes my back aches after squats and deadlifts. My numbers that I’ve plateaued with on Starting strength are Squat- 225 (3x5)
Bench- 170 (3x5)
Deadlift- 230 (1x5)
Press- 105 (3x5)
I generally feel really unmotivated to workout atleast 1 or 2 of the 3 workout days.
Testes: I don’t think there’s anything really wrong with my testes. I might have a very mild varicocele(s), but nothing that really bothers me.
Erections: I usually wake up with atleast a 50% semi, on occasion a 70-100% erection. It never lasts for more than a minute after I get up. Every now and then I get randomly hard before bed. I think I masturbate to porn for too long and too often and it has negative effects, a problem which I have decided to fix.
Any advice on what I should do to optimize my hormones given this info? What tests should I have done? I feel very fatigued and unenergetic atleast 2 or 3 days out of the week, where I don’t want to anything all day.
