So I’m 19 and have had endocrine problems in my life. The past several months I have not been feeling myself (significantly decreased libido primarily), and am curious if my hormones may have something to do with it.
My long-time endocrinologist assured me that “I’m fine,” and when I pressed him to explain why he thought I was fine, he wouldn’t.
So in addition to some feedback about my labs, I’d appreciate if anyone knows a decent endocrinologist in the Phoenix area.
Edit: I had the reference range for testosterone for the wrong lab on the image. Where it says (240-950) it should actually be (270-1070).
