Levels Low After Quitting Gear


#1

So I've been at this game for many years. 20 almost. I'm 36 now. I have definetly abused anabolic in the past and have paid the price. I suffer from pretty bad anxiety and depression. Recently I started feeling a lot better and thought I'd give it a shot again. I got great results and felt great. Then it hit me again like a sack of hammers. Anxiety bad I personally think my e2 was out of whack. Anyways I quit the gear and things are still pretty rough. I got tested a couple weeks ago and my levels are as follows.

Testosterone,random. 9.4 nmol/L
Free test 231.5 pmol/L
Shbg 19 nmol/L
Testosterone/shbg .49 nmol/L
Estradiol 58 pmol/L
Lh 2.8 u/l
Insulin like gf-I 273 ug/l

Do you think with test levels that low I could still be getting some depression and anxiety. I feel like shit and have no energy. I sleep well and keep a regular diet. I have also lost a ton of weight. Mostly fat and water but I usually weigh about 205 and I'm down to about 190.

Any help would be great.

We do need lab ranges, especially with SI units that are unfamiliar to most here.

Please read these stickies:
- advice for new guys and note the first paragraph, low energy can easily also be a thyroid / iodine deficiency issue
- finding a TRT doc
