I had a lower end T results a few years back when me and my wife were dealing with fertility issues. Usual low test symptons for a few years and finally found myself a very good and proactive doctor. I did the inital blood tests and some really interesting numbers came back:
LH 5 (2-6 iu/l)
FSH 2 (2-8 iu/l)
Progesterone 3 (<4.0nmol/l)
Estradiol <70 (<150pmol/l)
Test 15.5 (8.4-28.7)
Free Test 35.8 (19-66pmol/l)
Test Bioavailable 7.4 (2-14nmol/l)
Dihydrotestosterone 2760 (860-3406 pmol/l)
SHBG 33.4 (19-76nmol/l)
DHEA sulphate 14.5 (1.1-7.9)
TSH .20 (.35-5.mlu/L)
Free t3 5.1 (2.6-5.7 pmol/l)
Free t4 17 12-22 pmol/l
anti-tpo 6 (<35 IU/ml)
So the DHEA is sky high, and I definately was not expecting to be hyper thyroid (exhausted all the time).
Going to get retested to make sure these are not anolomies. But high DHEA seems like a good thing, but unfortunately isnt getting my T sky high. Having a hyperactive thyroid seems like it is better than hypo.
If anyone has come across this scenario would be interested in their take...doesnt seem to be that common in this forum.
Nevertheless, bad news is I have another round of tests before me and my doctor can get to work.
