I am new to this forum and need any input before my meeting tomorrow morning with my physician.
Two weeks ago I had blood work done and just recieved my lab work results.
LDL Chol 136
Free Testosterone 7.6
Vitamin B12 850
25-Hydroxy Vitamin D 27
Free T4 .80
The nurse of my Physician called in a prescription for Cholesterol and Androgel. I refused the Androgel because of my lack of knowledge and felt maybe a little rushed.
For a little background of myself.
40 years old
I have a lack of energy, drive, poor erections, headaches, depression/anxiety, mild insomnia, and feel “old”. I used to excercise/workout regularly until a few years ago due to not enough time. My work schedule and kids absorb my day.I eat very clean thanks to my wife’s healthy lifestyle. No history of drug or alchohol abuse and no steroid history. My marriage is great and am financially secure.
My anxiety has always been severe since puberty. No child hood issues that would have caused this.
Current meds are Klonopin for Anxiety as needed. Usually my intake is about 2 times a week at 1 MG.
Are there natural supplements that can help elevate Testosterone? I know that I really need to find time to start working out again for my health.
I have an appointment tomorrow morning with my Physician to go over my lab work. Please give me your thoughts on what I should be asking for in terms of additional lab work and reasons for my decline of Androgel.
