I have had symptoms of low T (fatigue, trouble remaining/getting hard, brain fog, not motivated) and I think it might be low T so I got tested. Some results are below. I got this test done at 5pm.
Total T: 584 ng/dL
Vitamin D 36 (30-100ng/mL reference range)
Iron total: 84 (50-195 mcg/dL reference range)
Coritsol: 7.5 mcg/dL
T3 uptake: 33 (22-35% reference range)
T4 (Thyroxine) total: 9.2 (4.5-12 mcg/dL reference)
Free T4 index (T7): 3.0 (1.4-3.8 reference range)
I didn’t get a free T test if that helps. My friend said the issue might be that I have too much estrogen. My questions are below if you guys could help.
- Since my test was at 5pm, does that mean my total t level would be higher in the morning when people usually get tested? If so, how much higher?
- It looks like my vitamin D barely makes the range. Will an increase in vitamin D towards the higher range increase my t level?
- If estrogen is the problem, how can I lower it?
- I want to get a free T test as well as an estrogen test. Do I tell my doctor straight up “can I get my estrogen levels tested” or is there a specific test that its called?
- any advice or insight into my condition?
