Hi, over the past few years I have been experiencing what I now know to be symptoms of low test. I am 35 and have been training since my early 20's but really got serious a few years ago. I have always been very confident and had a lot of drive. I started my business at age 20 and was always a go getter. I always went after what I wanted. A few years ago I noticed my drive fading. I became less interested in my business and it showed.
I chalked it up to being burnt out and within a few months sold my company in order to pursue a new avenue that provided a new challenge thinking this would help. Gradually my interest in hobbies faded and my mood became worse and worse and I just didn't enjoy the things I should. This had been going on but I still made it to the gym although the progress there had come to a standstill. My training and diet were good.
More recently the loss of libido was the last straw and at my yearly physical I asked the doctor to check my test. My level came back at 288 and lab range was 270-1070 so of course he said it was normal and I said maybe for an 80 year old man with type 2 diabetes. So he did refer me to an endo. My issue here is I want to treat the cause not the symptom. I have been reading the sticky threads but just want to make sure I am not missing anything.
I am going to have him check my LH/FSH, TT which was 288, FT, E2,Prolactin and PSA. Is there anything I am missing? I am 5'10 180 about 15% bf. I know this endo may not be the answer but at least I can get the bloodwork to get pointed in the right direction.
