-how have morning wood and nocturnal erections changed - I dont get morning woods, difficult to get an erection however once gf has aroused me enough I can get the job done. I had one instance a few months ago which led me down this path, I couldnt get an erection and the gf made me go to the doctor the next day, I tested at 260ng/dl (9nmol/l) and doctor told me I had low T.
Much research and a couple more blood tests later and my latest test returned a level of 231ng/dl (8nmol/l), strangely the reference range was 5 - 25nmol/l wheras the other tests had always had a reference range of 10 - 30. Have they just suddenly lowered the testosterone reference ranges or something?
If the lab states that this is normal, what about my other blood work that they have reported as being ‘normal’? Can anyone see any issues with other values?
I have typical symptoms I guess that go along with low T, most notably no desire for anything, I feel like i simply exist. Hope that makes sense.
Any input would be appreciated.
