I am looking for blood work interpretation for my thyroid function (see results below).
@Ksman … I would be very grateful for your input… I have been reading through your posts, thank you for all the information you have provided to this site.
THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE 2.33mIU/L (0.27 - 4.20)
FREE THYROXINE 13.8pmol/L (12.00 - 22.00)
TOTAL THYROXINE(T4) 60.9nmol/L (59.00 - 154.00)
FREE T3 5.45pmol/L (3.10 - 6.80)
THYROGLOBULIN ANTIBODY <10 IU/mL (0.00 - 115.00)
THYROID PEROXIDASE ANTIBODIES <9.0 IU/mL (0.00 - 34.00)
Here is my background… I am 40 years of age, 6ft 2” and weigh 98 kilos with a fairly lean muscular build. I am a regular gym goer and have cycled AAS since my early twenties. Due to my anabolic steroid use, I have recently started TRT which I am still adjusting for best results (two subq injections per week test enanthate + HCG + Arimidex). I am from the UK and would have no idea of my iodine levels although there is a blood test available for this. I switched to a low sodium salt many years ago which I think could have been around the same time that I noticed a dramatic drop in sex drive and tested ‘low’ for testosterone (12 nmol/L) Ref range (9-29) but I put this down to my error of running a Winstrol Depot only cycle.
Before starting TRT, I had blood work done one year after ceasing all steroids/pct meds and to list only testosterone and thyroid the results were as follows: (blood work drawn one year ago).
Testosterone 12nmol/L (9-29)
LH 5.0 iu/L (1.0-10.0)
FSH 9.0 iu/L (1.0-12.0)
E2 <18 pmol/L (95-223)
Prolactin 264 mU/L (86-324)
TSH 2.3 mu/L (0.30-5.50)
Free T4 16pmol/L (10-22)
I have taken several body temperatures recorded very close to 37C (98.6 F). I have read on this forum generally mentioned by Ksman that optimal TSH level is around one… I am not experiencing any symptoms other than a low sex drive (which I believe is due to low test) and poor injury heeling (muscular and bone).
Any advice would be really appreciated…
