I’ve been working out consistently for the past 3-4 years with hardly no gains despite trying a variety of training and diet programs. This led me to getting my T levels checked despite not having any other noticeable side effects. Sure enough, they came back on the low end of the ranges. I didn’t do much with the results except eat more healthy fats, and supplementing Vit. D. Fast forward to this week, I got my levels checked again and both T and FT dropped further putting T at the bottom end of the range and FT below normal.
I started researching some more and came upon this forum. I’m just a little confused what my options are, and if there is even a problem. Although my levels are low, I’m not sure if I should consider going on TRT with no other symptoms besides difficulty gaining muscle. I don’t even know how much TRT would help with that.
Just looking for any general advice or a push in the next direction of what I should be doing.
