Hey everyone, I’ve lurked this forum for a bit when doing research for my symptoms and finally signed up.
I’ve been having a fatigue issue for the last year, now I found that one of my nipples is sore, I have zero libido whatsoever and while I keep my diet in check and workout 5 days a week, I’ve been dropping weight over the 6 months. About 30 pounds. So I went to the doc. They ran blood tests, my CBC, lipids, blood sugar, liver values, etc were all in range however these were the tests the doctor ordered for sex hormones and thyroid:
Total Testosterone: 558.40 ng/dL (249-836)
Sex Hormone Binding Globulin: 54.99 nmol/L (7-49)
Testosterone Free/Total (calculated): 78.92 pg/mL (35-155)
Thyroxine: 6.7 mcg/dL (4.5-12.0)
Triiodothyronine Uptake: 28 % (24-39)
Thyroxine Free Index 1.9 (1.2-4.9)
I believe that in my case, the calculated Free Testosterone may not be accurate due to my higher than normal SHBG. I have a follow up appointment in ten days. What other tests should I request in the event that the doc says I’m fine?
