Hey guys, I need your help!
Over the course of the past year I've found myself becoming more anxious, more depressed, more mood-swingy, and generally just more worn out. Worse than that, it's become harder and harder to simply feel aggressive and assertive.
Basically, the classic symptoms of low T.
So I got a blood panel done. I didn't go through my doctor because I don't have insurance at the moment (quit my job to start a business, which, yes, is a HUGE stress factor, but that's all the more reason I need all the aggressiveness I can get.)
Testosterone, Serum 319 (249-836)
LH, Serum 2.1 (1.7-8.6)
FSH, Serum 2.7 (1.5-12.4)
Estradiol 33 (7.6-42.6)
I've always had low body/facial hair, feminine fat distribution, etc., so I can't say I'm surprised by the results. But I didn't expect it to be THAT low!
Well, I want to do something about it. Armed with these results, I do plan to visit a doctor. But I don't want to go in blind. I need help formulating a basic plan of attack! Does anything jump out at you guys? Estradiol looks sky high. Could reducing that alone alleviate some of my symptoms? I know LH and FSH play a role, but I don't know how to interpret my numbers (other than they are low).
Can anybody give me some guidance?
