I used to carry weight on my belly with some love handles. Weighed 212 in 2012, then did 2 rounds of P90x and switched to a low carb diet, lots of meat and veggies, got down to 180. Now no matter how much I eat and don't exercise, the current weight remains. No belly fat, no love handles, but muscles have def weakened over past year.
For ten years after last adrenal meltdown at 23 years old, supplement regimen has been: Aceytl Carnitine, DMAE, MoodMax (sexual health herbal/amino supp), 3 grams fish oil, 3 grams borage oil, calcium, magnesium, Vit D, 5htp. After adding in FertilAid supp and crashing, current doc has me on new regimen: methylB12, methylfolate, SAM-E, DHEA 25mg, Travacor, Aceytl Carnitine, DMAE, Life Guard B vitamin complex, fish oil, borage oil, copper, iron, vit A, vit D, vit K2, buffered C, calcium, magnesium, cayenne pepper, garlic, 5htp.
Rx: no history of propecia, 2mg of Prazosin alpha blocker at night for insomnia, 50 mg of Viagra as needed. On 10 day antibiotic currently to clear sinus infection - taking 300 billion, 14 strain probiotic 3 hours after antibiotic to prevent damage and continue to do so afterwards daily.
Labs see attached. These are from May 2015 right after I crashed but before the October 2015 results I posted above on docs treatment plan. What has changed since changing supp regimen? Cortisol has risen from 12 to 18, total T about the same, free T has plummeted, SHBG has risen from 32 to 44, TSH went up, LH has gone from 3 to 1.5, homocysteine is up too. As I noted above, I eliminated multivitamins five years ago and my free T improved nicely, I didn't need Viagra at that point. I wonder if multivitamins are causing this and I do better on less. Interestingly, Dr Crysler on his forum said the best way to lower SHBG is to raise total T. I've also heard low SHBG guys do terrible on TRT. I could be mistaken but I thought the fact my SHBG levels were rising was good assuming I was going on HCG/TRT. If not, I need to keep it lower to do the best I can with what little total T I have naturally.
Diet is good, breakfast usually a protein bar or poached eggs, salads with white chicken meat, occasional cheeseburger, lamb, fish, broccoli, spinach, Brussels sprouts, pistachio nuts, turkey jerkey, Mexican food, some sushi. Used to drink one cup of coffee each morning but stopped after issues started. Same with occasional alcohol.
I wasn't working out for about 8 months before I collapsed, so no overtraining.
Testes felt dead and got smaller, achey the second I stopped MoodMax. My LH dropped in half when I stopped that supplement and balls started hurting. If I take a MoodMax tablet, balls tingle again and firm up.
Morning erections lacking. Had them everyday until I crashed, now never in the morning. Occasionally, I open my eyes in the middle of the night and feel an erection but its a lot weaker than before.
