Hi all, This is my first post on here but i am looking for help. First a little backround info,
I am a 28 year old male.
6’2" tall and currently 218 lbs
I have always been a skinny dude, hardly any muscle mass but the weight that i have gained is all around my waist (38 inch waist now)
About 3 years ago i started noticing anxiety and had my first panic attack, I finally went in for help a year ago and was put on SSRI’s for it, which has helped. Over the same time frame i noticed it being incresingly easy to gain weight, however my high activity level has been able to compensate for it (for the most part)
7 Months ago i had shoulder surgury to repair a torn labrum. This obviously caused my activity level to drop and i gained weight quickly, almost 30lbs in 4 months.
My activity level is now back to normal however my energy levels are terrible. Im exhausted all the time now. have difficulty staying awake while driving, constantly late for work, and honestly my care factor or motivation is at zero.
I went to the Doc about this about 6 weeks ago and he tested my vit D levels along with T levels. My results are as follows
Vit D, 25-Hydroxy = 13.3 ng/mL (<20 ng/mL = deficient)
Testosterone ========================371 ng/dL Ref: 250-1100
Testosterone Free ================== 96.8 pg/mL Ref: 46-224
Testosterone Free and weekly bound = 211.6 ng/dL Ref: 110-575
Sex hormone binding globulin ======= 11 nmol/L Ref: 10-50
Albumin ============================ 4.8 gm/dL Ref: 3.6-5.1
The Doc told me everything was fine. After a little research on my own though, i became conserned that they might be to low. I asked for a second opinion, they retested me earlier in the morning, but this time they only tested total Testosterone, which was at 377.
The Doc insists that im still fine, however she did prescribe me a vit D supplement.
any thoughts on my levels for my age? I have another appointment tomorrow and am going to ask to be referred to a specialist, but any ammunition i can bring with me would be helpful. Thanks!
Also, I have very thick head of hair, pretty hariy, specially on my lower back. My Left testicle does ache every now and then. Mostly when im running
