Having a whole heap of symptoms for a while (around a year) that I either ignored or just put down to getting older (Im 38) - low motivation, poor libido, shithouse sleep, low immunity. Went down the viral/low grade infection route ofr a while and nothing came back. I then started thinking it might be hormone related so I convinced my doctor to do some further blood tests.
Can anyone help me try and make some sense out of my blood test results.
Here is the gist of the results;
Total Test - low normal
Free Test - OK (higher end of the scale)
LH, SBGH, E2 etc - Normal
Cortisol - high normal
DHEA-S - very low
This is the 2nd time I had testosterone measured - almost identical numbers to the first test. Any ideas or comments on what might be going on would be appreciated.
From everything I read on this site and around the place, DHEA supplementation might be the go. But why would I bother, if according to the test results, my free test is fine. Would low DHEA be capable of causing the symptoms above? Thanks for any comments/advice.
