New Guy Here Seeking Advice

Hi there Im new around here!
So I just turned 32 Decided to improve my self ( im doing fine mostly but yeah why no be better)
-Im 5’10 169pounds Roofer ( so Im active)
I restarted Lifting . Basicly Beer Belly is starting to show and Im not having any of that shit :stuck_out_tongue:
Im questioning about my actual Test level for these reason: Always tired / Low Sex Drive past 7pm since im basicly sleep walking and Ive had some issues before. I Had to see an endocrynoligist when I was A teenager because puberty would not start Basicly I was 15 years old 4’11 70pounds So I had to use Testosterone medication / Synthroid for a few years.
Im wondering If I could be facing the same issues now that Im getting older ( Ive been tested for my thryroid and result came in with nothing wrong showing).
Basicly im wondering if any Online Testosterone test are reliable and safe? if so and I actualy see Low levels whats my play? doctor ? Online? Not sure a Train physisit would put me on TRT for the heck of it. Anyhow whats my play here?

What online t tests are you referring to? You need a blood test, which you can get either through a physician or something like discountedlabs.com.

You go to discount labs and order blood testing, then you head on down to labcorp and have your blood drawn. The first four tests should be done at minimum.
