Hello guys. I hope some of you could shed some light on my problems. For a few years now I’ve had absolutely terrible libido, a general feeling of apathy (I wouldn’t call it depression, but I lack motivation to do almost anything) and have had trouble with fat gain around/in the waist and chest that I can’t seem to get rid of no matter how lean I get.
Been to three different doctors, none of whom saw fit to do full bloodwork. Getting sick of getting nowhere, I had some bloodwork done on my own dime. The test was nowhere near as comprehensive as I would like, but it’s very expensive to pay out of pocket and I can’t exactly shell out 500 euros for some bloodwork right now.
I don’t know what any of it really means. I showed these results to my doc, was told to contact a clinical chemist at the hospital for more information and he promptly told me that there were zero issues. When I told him about my issues and asked about my (IMO) low levels of test, E2 and FSH, he told me again that I was within range and it doesn’t require intervention (he was agitated about me talking back a little). Apparently a 60 year old and I could have the same testosterone levels and it’d be healthy because it’s “in range”…
I supplement Vitamin D3 5000 IU’s a day, but have only been doing so for about 5 months. I do not supplement with iodine, will start that as soon as I get an iodine supplement. I also supplement zinc, magnesium, vitamin B12, selenium and use a basic multivitamin. I do not know about my temperatures, I’ll get a thermometer and check it tomorrow.
It’s a wall of text, but I hope someone can help me out a little.
EDIT: oh I forgot to mention, I have never used AAS or any other PED.
