I am 39 years old. I lift heavy 3-6 times a week. Decent stats for an old man very close to 300 bench ( havent maxed in 3 months last max was 270 with a bad shoulder and now am at personal records with reps in 5X5) 330 squat (sucks I know) and 420 deadlift. I am tired and beat after good workouts. Sex life is good and do wake up with morning wood except on the mornings were my wife and had relations the night before.
I am just baffeled that my free T is low. The doctor said he doesnt deal with that stuff (meaning HRT) and refered me to a endo doctor. Shit I want to be on the high side of T not the low side. No damn wonder my results have been slow comming.
free t 7.4 (normal is 9-30)
total t 286 (normal is 270-1000)
estridiol 15 (they said this was within normal)
blood sugar 96 (morning test)
cortisol 20.6 (5-25 normal)
Maybe this will be good if I can get on TRT. If not I guess I will be forced to self admin. This whole thing really surprises me. I had (stupidly) thought that heavy squats, deads and other work would keep my levels high. Doesnt the heavy work increase the test production?
How should I approach this doctor? I guess I will tell him straight out I dont want to be on the low end I want to be on the high end.
