Vit-D is not a precursor for for T, it supports vital functions in the body.
There are lots of suggested considerations in the advice for new guys sticky. Need to know more about you. Include stress issues/events.
Do not get T tunnel vision! Read the thyroid basics sticky and come back with iodine intake HISTORY and body temp data.
- Vit-D as already suggested
- healthy oils such as olive oil
- EFA’s: fish oil caps, nuts, flax seed meal or oil
- high potency Vit-B complex with trace elements and iodine
With a lot of body hair, your T levels were good/high in the past and lower T levels will be more adverse for you than from guys who never had high T levels. The medical community ignores this side of things; one lab range is used to evaluate everyone. Another aspect if virilization is bone structure. Males who grow up with higher T levels can have stronger ‘male’ facial bone structure. That is something that a good practitioner could also consider.
Yes, your lab results are not consistent. You should avoid situations where you have to compare results from different labs. They will not produce the same numbers.
Your LH/FSH does not look bad. Your testes might be a bit under-functioning. Your situation may involve more than lower T levels, be open minded to the other suggested considerations/symptoms. [/quote]
Actually it is a precursor for T…look it up
Thereâ??s an amazingly simple way for western men to raise their testosterone level. All they have to do is take a supplement containing extra vitamin D. At least, this is what we deduce from an epidemiological study done at the Medical University Graz in Austria, which will soon be published in Clinical Endocrinology.
Vitamin D is actually a hormone â?? one that regulates three percent of our genes. Among those genes are a few that are responsible for the production of testosterone in the Leydig cells. So vitamin D is an important vitamin, certainly once you realise that an overwhelming majority of the western population has too little vitamin D in their blood.
This is because our food contains too little vitamin D, so we have to rely mainly on the vitamin D that our body makes. When exposed to sunlight our skin cells convert cholesterol into vitamin D. But we get too little sunlight and are therefore unable to make enough vitamin D.
So does that mean that most men in the West therefore make too little testosterone?
This is the question that the Austrians set out to answer. So they examined the blood of 2300 men whose average age was just over sixty. Only eleven percent of them had sufficient vitamin D in their blood. And indeed: the more vitamin D the men had in their blood, the higher their testosterone levels and their concentration of free testosterone [FAI].
High vitamin D level = high testosterone level
