After 5 years of trying to get GPs to help me with low test. I have finally got an appointment scheduled with a private clinic in another city. No doubt he will send me for more tests. But I recently had the following done (privately funded)
Can I get some feedback interpreting these results, please?
With regards to Free T I used an online calculator using total T & SHGB. I possibly did it wrong - not sure.
Test: 10.7nmol or 308.6ng/dl
Free T: 7.19 ng/dL or 71.9 pg/mL
FSH: 3.0 U/L (Range 2-12)
LH: 5.0 U/L (Range 2-9)
SHGB: 24.5 (Range 13.3 - 89.5)
Prolactin: 122 mU/L (Range 45-375)
Cortisol: 398 nmol/L (Range 170-500)
Oestradiol: 62 pmol/L (Range <200)
Main symptoms arelow libido (ok libido in the morning though) and difficulty changing my body composition and fatigue to a degree.
The particular doctor im going to prescribes creams.
Will they work for me & my SHGB level? I’m worried my SHGB is low.
Just wondering what sort of starting protocol people here would suggest. I’m open to injection protocols and can potentially convince my doctor of them if people here think it will be better.
I guess I’m just a bit nervous I’ll end up worse off than I am now if I can’t find the sweet spot.
