I just recently got bloodwork drawn due to issues with erectile dysfunction for a while. The results are as follows:
Testosterone (total): 927.1 ng/dl (348-1197 ng/dl)
Testosterone (free): 142.6 ng/dl (40-250 ng/dl)
Dihydrotestosterone: 65 ng/dl (30-85 ng/dl)
Estradiol: 42.7 pg/dl (7-42.6 pg/dl) High
I have gained roughly 40 lbs from 170-208 in around 6 months. Most of it
was muscle mass since I have been able to maintain a six pack
throughout. The only issues i’ve had for the past year have been
fluctuating libido and erectile dysfunction. When I was 17 years old, my
testosterone was tested at 220 ng/dl when i had severe anxiety and
panic attacks that lasted 2 years. At that time, i was very fatigued and
tired all the time. This past year, my energy levels have skyrocketed
and i’ve packed on a lot of muscle. I don’t have much facial hair except
the chin/neck region, but my voice is very deep and shoulders broad (21
inches across). i have also been experiencing hair loss for the past 8
months. My diet is very high carbs and fats with relatively low protein.
I eat mainly grass fed beef and eggs with beef tallow, white rice, hot
sauce, avocado shakes with whole milk and sugar, mushrooms, spinach,
bananas, and occasionally peanut butter with dark chocolate for a snack.
Do you think the hair loss is due to higher dht or estradiol? Also,
would these estradiol levels be attributed to my ED?
