First off, I wasnt really sure where to post this so sorry if it’s in the wrong section.
Recently I’ve been concerned that I may be growth hormone deficient. The main reason why is ever since I started lifting (5 years ago) if I’ve ever had to take even a really short time off the gym, I would lose an absurd amount of strength. For example I recently had to take a little under 3 weeks off the gym recently due to being unwell and my squat went from 155kg 3x3 down to 100kg 4x5. Also I needn’t mention that for 5 years of religiously eating (lean bulking for the most part) and training my progression has been pretty slow as well.
Apart from that I do experience some other things that are listed as side effects of low gh levels (decreased sexual functions/interest, lack of concentration, elevated triglycerides, majorly tired, and a few others).
I suspect there may be something wrong with my pituaritary gland as I got diagnosed with low T 2 years ago however TRT obviously didn’t sort out alot of the issues I was having.
