Hi, Im posting in this forum because I respect the articles Ive read on this site and figure people here know more about hormones than most doctors. Im a 30 year old male.
Testosterone Total 182 (250-1100 is range)
Testosterone Free 51.9 (46-224 is range)
Testosterone Bioavailable 120.4 (110-575 is range)
SHBG 7 (7-49 is range)
Albumin, Serum 5.1 (3.6-5.1 is range)
DHEA Sulfate 433 (110-510 is range)
FSH 1.7 (1.6-8.0 is range)
LH 2.5 (1.5-9.3 is range)
Some possible factors; - Could any of these dramatically lower testosterone?
Unfortunetly I have generalized anxiety disorder, depression and some ADD. Ive battled this since about 14 years old.
Pristiq, currently taking this which is an SSRI Ive seen some evidence that they can reduce test but others say no.
I have a varicocele in my left testi. Ive read that this can greatly reduce test if it shrinks the testicle but the left one is probably only a bit (maybe 15%) smaller than the right one (sorry about TMI)
Saw Palmetto, been taking for about 5 years to curb hairloss.
Ive been eating the Paleo diet for about a month before the test and about 3 months now. I feel better overall but dont know if this impacts testosterone. From what Ive been able to find the high fat and protein components of the diet seem to raise test if anything. I guess in relation to this Ive tested positive food allergies to wheat, gluten, eggs and cow dairy.
Have been doing 3x5 and 5x5 routines that include deadlifts and squats for about a little over a year now with no break. Could I have fried myself out?
Thank you so much for any insight that you can provide. My libido sucks, my focus blows, anxiety level high.
