Uncharted Waters for Me


#1

Going to see the Urologist for a consultation next month.

My blood labs are as follows:
Prolactin
7.9
<13.1 ng/mL

Follicle stimulating hormone (Collected: 12/14/2016 11:47 AM)

FSH
3.9
1.3 - 19.3 mIU/mL

Luteinizing Hormone (Collected: 12/14/2016 11:47 AM)

LH
3.9
1.5 - 9.3

Thyroid Screen (Collected: 12/14/2016 11:47 AM)

TSH
0.84
0.45 - 5.33 uIU/

Free Testosterone Evaluation (Collected: 12/14/2016 11:47 AM)

Testosterone, total
357
175 - 781 ng/dL

Sex Hormone Binding Globulin
24.1
13.3 - 89.5 nmol/L

Free Androgen Index
51.4
24.3 - 110.2 %

Calc Free Testosterone
8.5
3.2 - 19.0 ng/dL

Calc Bioav. Testosterone

80.7 - 446.7 ng/dL

My question to you all on here, is that with these numbers being on the low side of “normal”, would I be a candidate for TRT

Depends on doctor and what insurance entity is involved.

Most of the time, doctors are quite bad at these things.
Urologists have a very narrow view of things and are disappointing.

Symptoms and duration are important.

You did not have E2 [Estradiol] tested. Other labs suggest E2 is not high.
