I’m 37, 260lbs probably 20ish% bf. Lately I’ve been really tired and almost impossible to lose weight even under 2000 calories daily and training more than I’ve ever have. I figured it might be thyroid but my first blood test doctor said it was low test. I guess they only test free test. Mine was 4.3 and range was 7.6-31.4. He prescribed me test at 200mgs every three weeks (sigh). But I told him I wanted full bloodwork done before I start and I was hoping total testosterone would be included, but I guess they don’t do it there. I can’t find any testosterone knowledgeable doctors in my city. So I went and got more bloodwork done, including Free T4 & T3, FSH, LH, prolactin and estradiol. Everything is in range but now my free test is 7.9 so technically in range and he says I don’t need to take the test anymore (sigh again).
Here is a pic of my lab work:
Should I try and convince him to take the test because I’m on the very low end of the range? I have the prescription already but since it’s covered by insurance I figure I better try and do it the legit way so I can keep getting covered.
My balls are already tiny (possible from past use) and don’t plan on any more kids. Do I need HCG?
Any advice on my blood work?
