I am 50 yro, lifting weights for the last 20 years. Did a couple light cycles over the years, my last cycle were in 2011. and were almost as T replacement, bit higher - 250 test depot a week for 12 weeks. I didn’t took test since then but did few oral cycles almost not worth to mention by today standards ( 3 weeks of Anavar 30 mg a day or 4 weeks D-bol 20 mg a day)
In recent years I became bit low on my libido, recuperance from lifting and everyday life, so naturally, especially being into T nation, youtube TRT stories, I suspected low T.
Couple days ago I finally, for the first time in my life, went and did blood work done.
The results came and it surprised me at some results, some other’s not.
Thing worth mention is that I did labs in a pretty bad period (that’s why I actually went to see it, I thought my stats gonna be terrible) and after that, I start to feel good, in these recent days.
So, here they are. Note that the references and results in my country ( I am not english native speaker at all) ain’t coming in ng/DL but in nmol/L but I guess you will know how to transcribe them.
And finally, here are the results:
TT: 18.06 nmol/L ref. 4.47 - 26.60 (which is higher normal, right?)
Free T: 11.20 pg/ml ref. 6.30 - 17.80 again, not bad
SHGB: 30 nmol/L ref: 13 - 71
E2: 34.2 pg/ml ref less than 87.0
FSH: 4.0 mlU/ml ref: 1.5 - 11.8
LH: 2.94 mlU/ml ref: 1.1 - 25.0
DHT: 147.3 pg/ml ref: 250.0 - 990.0
LH and DHT especially seems pretty low, could that be my low libido and sometimes weak erections?
as for my blood count, everything is in range except these which are on higher side:
HGB: 173 g/L ref: 138 - 175
RBC 5.21x10 /L ref: 4.34 -5.72
MCH: 33.2 pg ref. 27 - 34
PDW: 15.9 ref: 9 - 17.0
I would appreciate your experience and help about the results and possible solutions.
