Ok I have been a longtime T-Nation reader and have posted a few times a while back. I am a 19 year old college student/athlete. I have a relatively good diet and training regiment. Last year was my freshman year in college and it all went well except I was sick a lot. Beginning in January of this year, I seemed to get sick every other week but I was able to work through it and just attributed it to be the result of stress and living in a dorm.
Beginning in around April of this year I began to lose weight for no apparent reason and have not stopped since (I went from about 250 down to where I am now at 220). Since this spring I have constantly been very tired and just don’t feel like being social, going out with friends, working out, etc. Two weeks ago I went to the doctor and had blood work done.
He said that everything was normal except my testosterone was “a little low” and that if I want I can come back in and have it retested. Since then I have browsed this board and tried to educate myself the best I can. I have included my lab work (I understand that its not complete, however this is all the doctor tested for at the time).
Total Testosterone : 467 Reference : 230-1720 (This is for a 20 year old male, they didn’t have one for a 19 year old
TSH : 2.94 Range: .34-482
These are the only things he tested for that I believe any of you all would be interested in. I know it is not much so I have put together a list of what I am going to request when I go back in to get more labs done. Please let me know if yall would add anything to this list or if I can take something off it.
-LH and FSH
I read another post where an individual similar to myself posted and KSMAN requested the following information so I have included it
waist size 36
when did this start? January 2010
after an accident? No, however I play football so I am constantly subject to minor head injuries
reduction of peripheral vision? dont think so
describe body and facial - hair Seems normal
I would appreciate any input or advice.
