I’ve been to so many doctors and no one knows whats going on. Endo won’t put me on TRT because my last testosterone test came back barely within range (despite not being in range the previous 3 labs). Do I need TRT? Is this a more complex issue (thyroid?). I have symptoms of hyperthyroidism but the labs don’t seem to agree. GP wants to put me on antidepressants; I don’t think thats the answer.
Should I be on TRT? Any advice is greatly appreciated
