What is the consensus to do in this situation? A TT level that would be considered “normal”, but a very low free or bio t?
normal and ideal are two completely different things.
the definition of ideal is dependent on a number of factors and is different for each person (based on their genetic code, environment, etc.).
you should test all systems (thyroid, Cortisol, d25-OH, ferritin, B12, testosterone, estradiol, etc. etc. etc.) and work to get each of them into the IDEAL range.
Can’t do much without numbers and ranges. Are these in some other tread of yours?
I have a thread on called: Dr Visit - What should I request
I was just thinking out loud on how you approach that issue. When TT looks reasonable and most Dr’s wouldn’t consider trt, but free is really on the low end.
