Guys, as some of you know, I’ve tried TRT in various forms and amounts in the past few years. Still having a hard time finding a sex drive and curing my ED.
I’ve run numerous thyroid tests over the past few years (see below) and some have noted that I may be a bit hypo.
My QUESTION is this (as I see my Dr tomorrow and I want to push him for a med for thyroid. Like a trial run to see if I can get a response positively):
WHAT type of medication should I advocate for? Synthroid? Armour"
Here is my last thyroid work from APril 2019:
TSH 1.36 mIU/L (.40-4.50)
Free T4 1.2 ng/dl (.8-1.8)
T3 total 82ng/dl (76-181)
I’ve tested numerous times over the years, and my numbers above are generally what bloods show. I am secondary hypogonadic, so my pituitary isn’t functioning optimally.
The numbers aren’t bad, but I’m at my wits end trying to find something that will show me a little sex drive and perk me up. ALWAYS tired and shitty metabolism. Also very poor sleep.
SO, what should I be pushing for? I also get plenty of selenium and iodine from diet. I need to try something else.
