T Nation

Help with Lab Results Please!!


3 years ago I was diagnosed with Low T due to pituitary malfunction. T was down at 80! I started T shots and everything was great EXCEPT I had horrendous back acne that I could not control nor could my doctor. I cam off the shots a year ago and for 6 months felt pretty good but then the slide happened. Over this part year I have tried all the over the counter and natural supplements I could get my hands on to no avail. I just got blood work done myself to see where I was at and it was not good. I am tempted to go back on the shots but cannot get past the Acne issue. Please help!! I have attached my lab numbers.

Bloodwork was taken at 10:36 am

Please describe your past TRT protocol with doses and timing.

Thyroid hormones look good. Now if your oral body temperature is 97.7 when you first wake up and you also hit 98.6 in the mid-afternoon, you are good to go.

Did you get prolactin tested?

Pituitary produces several hormones and you should be screening for other pituitary hormones.
IFG-1 is used to evaluate growth hormone status.
Please describe the pituitary condition.


thank you for your help on this. I updated my original email with more details.


At 43, we typically do not see prolactin developing as a new condition.
