I started a thread several months ago and was given great advice by you all to get updated bloods done that include thyroid and other key areas, as well as look into a speciality HRT clinic.
I have taken the advice of you good people and decided to use Balance My Hormones and Doctors Laboratory for my blood work. I am UK based.
I had my blood taken today, fasted, and here are my results. I will get my IGF-1 results shortly and will post them also.
I welcome your advice and kind assistance.
I am 6ft and 37 years old and symptoms I have are:
always feeling tired
feeling down and grumpy
bad quality sleep (not deep sleep and tossing and turning). Even after 8 hours I don’t feel fully rested.
I get erections fine during sexual activity but don’t wake up with wood daily like I used to.
high body fat % despite eating 2800 calories, lifting 3 times a week and doing jiu jitsu 4 times a week. I am around 23%bf at 108kg (238lbs).
I have been lifting hard for 4 years and my big 3 1RMs are:
Squat 150kg (330lbs)
Deadlift 150kg (330lbs)
Bench 140kg (315lbs)
- Please note I hurt my back a couple years ago so I have only been deadlifting around 5 months. My squat form was crap when I started and I now breaking parallel and am improving my form.
Thank you for taking the time to help me. I appreciate it!
P.S. Uric Acid got cutoff. My result was 240nmol/L on a scale of 266 to 474.
