Testosterone Blood Results


#1

Hi everyone, I'm 23 and I'm new to the forums, but I'm definitely not new to the symptoms of Low T, I have Gyno, no facial hair, no chest hair, very little underarm hair, low mood and no energy. I recently just had a batch of bloodwork done privately, basically it was an "Andropause Profile" anyway, I don't know much about test results, and was wondering if anyone on here could help me better interpret the problem? My Testosterone level in December was 11.6 nmol/L, now it's down to 9.7 nmol/L.

You need these labs:
TT
FT
E2 - important re gyno
LH/FSH - important re gyno
prolactin - important re gyno
CBC
AST/ALT
DHEA-S - important re low underarm hair
TSH
fT3
fT4
IGF-1

Your lab results without ranges are really not useful.

Do not start TRT until suggested labs are done. This is essential for LH/FSH.

Are your outer eyebrows sparse?
Have you used iodized salt for years?
Do you get cold easily?

Please do not skip any of the suggested reading or questions/directives above.

When did problems start? Any blows to your head before that?
Were things better earlier?
More hair before?
