I am 35 years old male. I weigh 200lb sitting at about 16% body fat with a height of 5 ft 11.
Been training on and off for ten years last couple of years got more serious .
My lifts are as follows:
Bench press : 140kg/308lb x 4
Squat : 140kg/308lb x 5
Deadlift: 200kg/440lb x5
Dumbell shoulder press 42kg x 7
I don’t really try for one rep maxes I just try to improve on number of reps for them weights.
My problem is I got blood tests done out of curiosity about 7 months ago and my level was very low At around 8ng/250nmol . I’ve been tested 3 times since to make sure it wasn’t a fluctuation and each time its come out near enough the same.
Here is my latest test results from today.
D.H.E.A. SULPHATE 8.870 umol/L 0.44 - 13.40
FOLLICLE STIM. HORMONE 10.2 IU/L 1.50 - 12.40
LUTEINISING HORMONE 4.6 IU/L 1.70 - 8.60
TESTOSTERONE 8.36 nmol/L 7.60 - 31.40
SEX HORMONE BINDING GLOB 21.7 nmol/L 16.00 - 55.00
FREE ANDROGEN INDEX 38.53 Ratio 24.00 - 104.00
I feel ok in myself I am quite strong and working well in the gym. My sex drive is what I would call normal. But these low test results are worrying me. Could this low test be damaging or dangerous in the long term?
Any help or advice is greatly appreciated.
