Posted this on Excel Male Forums, but wanted to post a few other places as well
New to the board, but have been browsing for a bit. Figured I would reach out and see if I could get some advice. Brief history, have been working out on and off since 18 or so. Messed around with pro hormones and did a few cycles when I was younger (never followed a PCT correctly, because I was an idiot). 34 now and just been feeling kinda blah for a long time, started doing labecause of ED (which they attribute to anxiety and say I should just use viagra or cialis, two different urologists said this. I wanted to really know the root cause, but I don’t have the best luck finding good doctors who will work with me). One urologist I saw was quick prescribe TRT. I’ve been debating going on that, but I want to be safe and do things the right way. Dad had two heart attacks, with quad bypass on his second one, his dad had heart problems, and his brother my uncle just died of a heart attack last Sunday, so I am a bit afraid to run anything.
Testosterone levels were lower last year, but SHBG didn’t seem to be that high either. I noticed this year that my total test seems good, but SHBG is quite high thus free test is low. Which I assume is why total is up so much now. Any ideas? I’ve tried researching, but I cannot seem to find a ton on it. Figured a lot knowledgeable people were here and maybe someone could help me out. I also considered trying to see an Endo, not sure if they’d be of any help
I’ve attached labs from last year and then two different sets I had drawn this year. I can provide cholesterol and all of that if needed as well. If that last set of labs isn’t readable, please let me know.
Thank you in advance for any info you can provide.
