I’m male, 31 yrs old, 6’3 and about 230lbs, approx 16% bf.
After reading TC’s thread the other day I thought it would be wise to get my T levels checked at the same time I was getting cholesterol done (keep the wife happy). I’ve contemplated but never used steroids.
My diet is very clean - 90% clean.
My training is consistent 4/5 days per week on a bastardised WS4SB style program.
I used to be grossly overweight, for 6 years I weighed approx 301lbs then changed my life around, got done to a skinny fat 189 and now a more respectable and relatively strong 230.
I have a new company which comes with its stresses but otherwise life is good yet I struggle with the following:
Morning wood is very inconsistent
Suffer injuries frequently despite having a very structured and sensible progression program
Always wake up tired and unrefreshed
Struggle to drop body fat without dropping muscle (I realise some muscle will be lost)
Carry excess fat around my chest, not gyno but not how they should be for how I train
I have read through the stickies but I will admit I’m struggling to understand things, my doctor/GP who I would normally go to is in Bali for 3 months and well I’m not sure who else to discuss these results with.
Cholesterol 5.2 <5.0 nmol/l
HDL 1.67 >1.00 nmol/l
LDL 2.8 <3.0 nmol/l
Triglyceride 0.63 <1.70 nmol/l
HDL Ratio 3.1
S-Total Protein 68 60-82 g/l
S-Albumin 45 37-52 g/l
S-Globulin 23 18-36 g/l
S-Alb./Glob/ Ratio 2.0 0.9-2.7
S-Total Bilirubin 19 2-20 umol/l
S-Conj Bilirubin 2 0-8 umol/l

S-Gamma GT 29 5-50 u/l
S-Alt 30 10-40 u/l
S-Ast 34 10-40 u/l

SHBG 29.2 14.5-48.4 nmol/l
Free Test Calculated 318.1 174-729 pmol/l
I also used an online calculator, not sure how accurate it is which calculated the following:
Free Testosterone 0.722 nmol/l = 4.97%
Bioavailable Test 2.42 nmol/l = 16.7%
I may have put too much info on here or useless info but I would really appreciate any help translating this stuff. According to the results i’m in the “normal” range but the range is so vast its ridiculous, I also would like to be treated on an individual level rather than grouped in within this normal range.
Thanks again in advance.
