I just wondered if I could get some advice from you guys as to whether or not I should consider trt. Test, free test and oestradiol all seemed quite low in my opinion. My bloods test results:
D.H.E.A Sulphate 9.860 umol/L
Follicle stim. Hormone 2.84 IU/L
Luteinising Hormone 2.32 IU/L
Testosterone 12.1 nmol/L
Free Testosterone (calculated) .254 nmol/L
SHBG 28.9 nmol/L
Free Androgen Index 41.87 ratio
17-Beta Oestradiol 44.6 pmol/L
I also had t4 and Tsh which can back mid range and dht low but in range. Do I need t3 and antibodies as well? Also thought maybe prolactin to see if things point to pituitary at all? Seeing as my LH & FSH are low i assume it’s probably not the testes themselves.
These were all taken at 9 am in the morning.
For background I’m a lean 26 year old. Who eats well, organic meat and veg. Don’t each much refined sugar or drink much alcohol. I have a pretty big appetite and train regularly about 3 times a week some hiit training and strength training.
Just have some of the symptoms of low t such a poor sleep, hardly much facial hair and I believe my libido is off (this I’ve only just realised as I thought it was normal because it’s always been the same. But speaking to some friends in confidence that though that I was pretty off considering my age.) There is a few other things that possible are related as well.
Anyways would really appreciate any advice at all as I keep hearing conflicting information.
