I recently turned 19 and I must say that I don't look the part. I'm very tall, about 6.3, and am very thin and my bf is 14%. Basically, I'm skinny fat ectomorph. Now, the thing is that I'm very childish looking, I have very soft face features, narrow shoulders, thin bones, small hands for my height, very thin hair, etc. Also, I never developed any muscle mass and my facial hair is non-existent, and I have small amounts of body hair with no hair on arms or chest.I also had gynecomastia that was surgically removed few years ago.
I rarely get morning wood, and my libido is pretty low for someone my age and my energy leves are crap. I went to series of endo's and lot's of them gave me different diagnosis. One of them confirmed that I looked very hypogonadal and he even considered putting me on TRT, but my lab tests were always ok, and I wouldn't risk going on TRT before considering other possible methods.
The thing that stood out in my lab tests was Free Testosterone and TSH.
TSH: 7.24 miU/L (ref. 0.35-4.94) *
FT4: 12.4 pmol/L (ref. 9 - 19.1 )
LH: 5 miU/ml (ref. 2.4 - 12.6)
FSH: 2.1 IU/l (ref. 0.7-11.1)
E2 20.22 pg/ml (ref. 12.5 - 166.0)
Test 6.04 ng/ml (ref. 2.49-8.36)
Free test 6.25 pg/ml (4.25-30.37) *
my lab tests may seem odd 'cause I'm from Europe and we probably use different measuring system.
As you can see, my TSH is high, but my FT4 is normal, and also my test is normal but my Free test is on the lowish side. So, could TSH be to blame for my LowT symptoms or is it the low free testosterone? Also, should I test my SHBG? Can the thyroid hinder my pubertal development?
