As per the above post this would be the complete version including labs.
The overall goal here is to improve the quality of my life.
I do not have a TRT doc., it seems quite difficult here in Sweden and I could start this myself until my GP gets onboard, labs and other tests can be done as often as I need.
I greatly appreciate the input from this forum and the people here that help others. Thank you for your interest in my post.

*What are my options here based on above info provided?
*I started taking vit D3 as per Ksmans recommendation. Should be good based on the extremely low vit D labresult I show.
*I also know that my non-steady diet needs to be in check so thatâ??s something I am currently working on.
