Hi everyone, I’ve been thinking low test might be my problem for years now, I’m fairly young (24) and felt like this since I was 16/17. I got my bloodwork done at 17 and received a call that my levels were (3.5 out of 5) and I’m in the normal range.
I’ve got daily brain fog, tired and fatigued every day all day, lack of focus, no libido (I can get hard and have sex, just feels dead and don’t want to). I have low motivation most days and feel super inadequate. I struggle to gain weight since I’m not hungry usually. I eat around 2500-4000 calories a day.
Below are my lab results, I’m hoping someone here can point me in the right direction in what to do.
Weight: 180 lbs
Lifestyle: fit, W/O 4 days a week, high fat, low carb diet, no sugar. Daily cardio + IF sauna (10 min each). No drinking, drugs, smoking. 6-9 hours of sleep everyday.
Supplements: D3 (15,000IU), Boron (9-12mg), Zinc (50mg E3D)
T3, FREE: 3.5 (Range: 2.3-4.2)
T4, FREE: 1.4 (Range: 0.8-1.8)
TSH: 1.29 (Range: 0.40-4.50)
E2: 28 (Range: < OR = 39)
Free Test: 108 (Range: 35-155)
Total Test: 748 (Range: 250-1100)
FSH: 11.8 (Range: 1.6-8.0)
LH: 5.1 (Range: 1.5-9.3)
Prolactin: 8.8 (Range: 2-18)
SHBG: 45 (Range: 10-50)
E2, SHBG, and FSH are all high. TSH looks on the low side. My levels are pretty good as far as ranges since it’s in the 700’s. I think that may be do to watching and reading and doing every “How to raise your testosterone naturally” ever made.
I think maybe I’m one of those people that needs even more to feel good and normal, I’d just like to see some of the thoughts of the experienced folks and Endocrinology enthusiasts as to what I should do.
Thanks in advance.
