Hi guys, first time poster, but long time lurker here.
I’m a 30 year old male and I’ve been feeling little down lately, low energy, low libido, no morning erections, and also my nipples started to get sensitive so I decided to get myself checked by endocrinologist who told me to do some blood tests. I’ve got the results back today and my values are below.
FSH 5,2 IU/L (ref. 1,5 - 12,4)
LH 6,7 IU/L (ref. 1,7 - 8,6)
Prolactin 150 mIU/L (ref. 86 - 324)
Estradiol (E2) - 11 pg/ml (ref. 11,3 -43,2)
Testosterone 4,59 ng/ml (ref. 2,49 - 8,36)
So I realize my T levels aren’t the best, but I’ve been pretty sedentary lately so that could’ve contributed. I started hitting the gym again today so that will hopefully help with raising my T to more respectable levels. Also, I thought my issue with sensitive nipples is caused by either high prolactin or high E2 but both values are in range, with E2 even being a little bit below it. So my question for you guys is can sensitive nipples be caused by some other random reason or could it be a mistake from the lab? Also, in case my T levels don’t increase after few months of healthy and active lifestyle should I consider TRT?
