You are too low. 8,5-27,5 is a ref range (a number in between is what any healthy 18y/o male should have), so you are lower than normal range.
Why did your doc order that test? I think you should investigate it and search for the cause of such low number in your test score. Maybe you should even test your other hormones (prolactin, thyroid etc).
Some reasons Testosterone drops are: lack of sleep, lack of fat in your diet (less than 20%) or overall lack of calories (maybe you’ve been dieting?), high daily stress.
P.S. There is Alpha Male in the store, maybe you should try it out and re-test your Testosterone levels.[/quote]
Alpha Male isnt going to do much to help someone who is severely deficient. Hell, I have my doubts that its going to provide a very significant boost for someone who isnt deficient.
I would say 3.5 is definitely more than a little low.
If your doctor isnt going to get you on some shit to fix this now, you need to find a new doctor because your current one sucks.
If you cant get a doctor to help you, head over to steroids and talk to Bushido or Bill Roberts. Im sure that, given your situation, they would be more than willing to help you…and not just tell you to take some OTC “test booster”…real help.
Not to hijack, but this is one thing that pisses me off to no end. Guys who should be at optimal test levels due to their ages are denied TRT because of the stigma surrounding test.
Good luck kid.
