Hi guys, long time member here.
I recently had a blood test done to check my TSH, but I also had them check my testosterone levels. Since my DR couldn't really give me a good run down on the difference between total and free testosterone, I'm posting my #s here with some hope that someone here does know.
I am a 21 yr old male, about 190 lbs. Probably 18% bodyfat, I'm guessing. Maybe slightly lower.
% FREE TESTOSTERONE: 3.7% // 2.0-4.0%
TOTAL TESTOSTERONE: 598 // 240-950 ng/dl
FREE TESTOSTERONE: 22.1 // 8-30 ng/dL
Also here's my metabolic panel if anyone wants to take a look and tell me what I can work on/should do:
Sodium: 142 // 133-144 mmol/L
Potassium: 4.0 // 3.4-5.3 mmol/L
Chloride: 105 // 94-109 mmol/L
Total CO2: 32 // 20-32 mmol/L
Glucose: 86 // 65-115 mg/dL
Urea: 22 // 5-24 mg/dL
Nitrogen Creatinine: 1.2 // 0.7-1.3 mg/dL
Calcium: 8.8 // 8.5 - 10.4 mg/dL
A slight problem:
My WBC was 3.7... which is severely low. Anyone know of ways to boost this count? From what I recall I was in relatively good health at that point in time... I'm a little worried because that's a number someone with leukemia might have.
TSH level was 2.02 if that matters to anyone.. Is it high? Low? Range is 0.50-6.00 uIU/L This blood test result leaves a lot of unanswered questions - I was given zero information.
Thanks for those who take the time
