I have high total testosterone, and ED that is getting worse from my mid 20s. Now at 31 ED is primary reason I am looking for help. Although I am 6'1",190P and have solid body strength I dont think that I have developed as I should in puberty from that much testosterone potential in my body.
Body fat around thighs, not big hands, forearms nor shoulders. Very small adams apple, average 6" penis, not so much self esteem and kind of shy whole of my life. Basically all man-masculinity features are average... Its not genetics !
Recently I started to research and thought that whole of my life (even in mothers womb) my testosterone was suppressed by other hormons or other factors in my body... my first suspect was too much conversion to estrogen. Here are my labs;
Testosterone: 982 ng/dL high-normal
LH: 3.0 mlU/mL normal
FSH: 3.7 mlU/mL normal
Progesterone 0.4 (ref <0.46) normal
E2(estradiol): 36 (ref <75pg/ml) normal
DHEA-S: 58mcg/dl (ref 150-445) VERY LOW
Based on labs, estrogen was not an issue, but DHEA. I do feel symtoms of low DHEA, I did even in puberty. Since I read that DHEA is precursor to tt, is it possible that my body converts too much DHEA to TT?
Another theory goes further; DHEA goes to a pathway where it is converted to TT then quickly converted to DHT and then to another hormone(forgot which one) which is believed that sentisizes cells (or its androgen receptors) to TT, so that TT could start developing masculine body parts (especially in puberty).
This final theory makes sense in my case; there was not enough DHEA in puberty to "open the gate" for testosterone to build muscles and bones.
I have started taking DHEA 25mg for start. Does anyone have any experience with rising DHEA levels, how did you feel when DHEA levels rose...
