greatly appreciate any help thanks

I’ll tell ya right off the hop. You need to edit your post and post ranges and units. Read the stickies ( first 5 or 6 threads at top of first page) ESP the advice for new guys sticky. List all labs. And don’t believe ur stupid doctor lol. Did your doc do cbcs and liver functions tests? Yes fat can be ur enemy but the nothing can be done its a bunch of bullcrap .

Also what was your protocol when coming off the steroids? I believe what happens is if you don’t use something to keep the estrogen down and bring T up you end up swimming in a sea of estrogen and becoming estrogen dominant. Estrogen sits in the testosterone receptors and doesn’t allow T to work. And prolly whatever T is there is being converter to E by way of aromatase.

As above + read the thyroid basics sticky. You appear to have thyroid problems, possibly only an iodine deficiency if you are lucky. Thyroid function problems can make you fat and make fat loss difficult or impossible. Adding that to T problems is a bad, but common, combo.

  • post iodine intake and body temperatures.

Can’t see lab units, but appears to be some degree of primary hypogonadism. See advice for new guys sticky for definitions.

Tell us what steroids you used.
