So, I’m a 35 year old man. I have been suspecting low testosterone issues for some time, and got a test a few months back. 289 ng/dL. Even though the lab reference range gave something in the 240s, I read online less than 300 is low and should be looked into. So I went to a PCP about it. Got a total and free testosterone result. 271 ng/dL, with 51.8 pg/mL free. The first visit he actually seemed more amenable to looking at it and then maybe referring me to a specialist. But he didn’t seem to care at all after the second test.
Both these numbers are still at the low end or below a lot of the different standards I’ve seen. I’m gonna go ahead and pursue other opinions, including talking to an endocrinologist tomorrow. I’m wondering, are there any other serum concentrations I should mention that might be worthy of testing, or really any other information I should go in armed with? There seems to be a lot of resistance in medicine to treating or even taking into consideration low testosterone.
I also have been reading about clomiphene citrate as an option that doesn’t come with some of the side effects exogenous testosterone does, are there any thoughts on that?
