43 years old
health conditions: none
I weight train
I eat well (240g protein, 275g carbs, 75g fats), plenty of red meat, all the veggies, very little if any processed foods
Bald for 20 years, plenty of body hair, very full beard
I eat seafood and use iodized salt- I’ve taken temps with satisfactory results
Testes very rarely ache- maybe twice in the past few years
I’m wiped out most of the time, no matter how much I sleep
Recovering from workouts is getting worse
Libido is hit or miss, steady decline in the past 10yrs
Morning wood is hit or miss. Some days it’s great, many others there’s nothing
Erections are going away faster than they used to
Carrying a stubborn spare tire
Testosterone, Total 342 ng/dL 175 - 827 ng/dL *
Testosterone, Total Ultrasensitive 452 ng/dL 250 - 1100 ng/dL
Testosterone, Free 79.1 pg/mL 35.0 - 155.0 pg/mL
Estradiol 19 pg/mL <=47 pg/mL
FSH 7 mIU/mL <=18 mIU/mL
TSH 2.4 uIU/mL 0.3 - 5.6 uIU/mL
CBC- everything in range.
Same with the Comprehensive Metabolic Panel.
LH can’t be done in network for some reason. I’d have to go outside for that.
- First Testosterone test was one week earlier than the ultrasensative
My PCP was/is ready to prescribe Clomid, as she feels the TT (first test) is low. I’m not sure where it’d take me, but willing to give it a try if it might be helpful.
Looking at the latest results, I may not be a candidate for TRT… but honestly don’t feel I’ve got the quality of life I’m satisfied with at the moment.
