Hello, I have been reading here for a few months and finally am getting ready to start an HPTA restart as described here
First my most recent labs as of 5/5/2015, LEF.org:
TT 199 ng/dL range 348-1197 ng/dL
FT 7.4 pg/mL range 8.7-25.1
DHEA-S 297.7 ug/dL range 102.6
E2 13.7 pg/mL 7.6-42.6 Roche ECLIA method
I am 35 yo, currently 205 lbs 13% body fat
I started researching low T around January 2015, and started a training program following 5x5 Stronglifts combined with high protein, low simple carb and high fat diet. This brought my B fat down from 20% to the current 13. I feel much better , also reduced alchohol from drinking every night(few beers or half a bottle wine) to only drinking Fri or Sat, a little.So lifestyle changes were made thinking I had high aromatase because of the BF %.
Better erections now, morning wood almost every day and libido is improving compared to 3 months ago.
I have been supplementing with D3 @ 5000 IU/day, tribulus and horny goat weed, Magnesium aspartate and zinc.
March 19 2015, Quest
TT 250 ng/dl range 247-850
TT 245 range 237-850 (Different lab)
TT 260 range 250-850
All of the above labs are done by different laboratories because of different insurance at different times.
My PCP would not test free T or E2, so I went through LEF.org for the last and most current.
Symptoms are brain fog, poor recovery from physical excersise, low libido, no stamina. I had mild gyno since puberty that never went away, left with puffy nipples. Always was with higher BF, probably around 20 and I am currently in my best shape at 13% BF and managed to even put on a few pounds of muscle with this pathetic low T, can’t imagine what it will be to get to 500-600 ng/dL.
Injected AAS twice at 18 years old, that is two injections of deca, not two cycles and that is all,
I am planning on trying the HPTA restart as outlined by KSMAN, please give me any thoughts you may have on the lab results and possible course of action.
