I can’t grow any muscles, No facial hair (literally), my testicles are tiny (probably smaller than grapes), i get no morning wood but I do masturbate every day is it possible that I have klinefelter syndrome? Why do I look like someone who hasn’t finished puberty yet? does 520 total testosterone mean no chance for TRT?

You could probably rule out Klinefelter syndrome, as your FSH and LH are pretty much mid-range, whereas I’d expect them to be high if you had it. But the only way to try would be to get a Karyotype done.

If your testes are as small as you say, then it might be worth doing a fertility test.

How is your body proportioned? Klinefelter syndrome tends to result in longer limbs, gynecomastia, wide hips, and narrow shoulders.

As for TRT, your total testosterone and calculated free testosterone (11.5 ng/dL) are at a level above where a physician would prescribe it. Your LH and FSH are mid-range, so you’re not suffering from subclinical hypogonadism.

I see a thyroid problem. Most likely because you are not getting iodine. Is iodized salt available in your country?

Evaluate your overall thyroid function by checking oral body temperatures as per the thyroid basics sticky. Thyroid hormone fT3 is what gets the job done and it regulates mitochondrial activity, the source of ATP which is the universal currency of cellular energy. This is part of the body’s temperature control loop. This can get messed up if you are iodine deficient. In many countries, you need to be using iodized salt. Other countries add iodine to dairy or bread.
