I’m new to the forum. I turned 40 in April, but have been struggling with lower energy, irritability and lower libido for a while. It looks like my total test is ok, but I’m confused by what the other numbers mean. I’m a lifelong competitive martial artist, and I want to thrive, not just exist, which my doc seems to have trouble grasping.
Numbers for reference:
Cortisol morning 15.1 ug/dL Range-8.0 - 25.0 ug/dL
Testosterone, TOTAL 686 ng/dL Range->=240 ng/dL
Free T4 1.2 ng/dL Range-0.8 - 1.7 ng/dL
TSH 1.59 uIU/mL Range-0.40 - 4.20 uIU/mL
ALT 17 U/L Range 0 - 36 U/L
