    Blood work for Testosterone/etc. please comment


    Hi all, I am a 26 year old male with a sometimes low sex drive and mood swings. Sometimes I have difficulty maintaining erections and sometimes not really. I managed to get a blood test focusing on some sex hormones and I was curious if anyone could comment on these levels for a 26 year old male.

    Free Testosterone - 1.34 ng/dL ( Ref. Range .95 - 4.30 )
    Testosterone Level - 323 ng/dL ( Ref. Range 240 - 1048 )
    Follicle Stimulating Hormone Level - 2.3 mIU/mL ( Ref. Range 1.6 - 11 )
    Sex Hormone Binding Globulin - 20 nmol/L ( Ref. Range 13 - 71 )
    Estradiol - 30.3 pg/mL ( Ref. Range 11 - 32.1 )
    Thyroid Stimulating Hormone - 2.11 uIU/mL ( Ref. Range .50 - 5.20)
    Prolactin - 5.4 ng/mL ( Ref. Range < = 18.0 )



    Any comments from anyone knowledgeable would be helpful. It seems like, as far as testosterone goes, I am on the very low end, just above abnormal. I am wondering if I should go see an HRT doctor.

    Thanks!

    I agree with DT5. Even though your results are with in the "normal" range, IMO your free test and tt test are way too low for a man your age. Your E2 is too high as well. You should have your t on the high end of the scale and your E2 should be around 20. You probably feel like crap with these numbers. Find a TRT or HRT doctor.

    Yes you need to seek a good HRT dr..What state are you located in?
    Dr john is located in the mid west and other good TRT may be closer. Some times you have to spend alittle in order to get the best. People have come 2,000 miles or more to me for help as well.
    I am not a medical Dr, please keep in mind that this answer is for information purposes only, and is not intended to diagnose, treat or replace sound medical advice from your physician or health care provider.

    your estrogen levels are affecting the sex part of your porblems. what are your lh levels? Since your only 26 a HRT doctor cant legally give you test but you can HCG and medication to bring down your estrogen levels and pills to help with your sex problems. I used a great HRT group down in florida

    Well that's not true unless he is talking about getting a script without actually seeing the doctor. You can do that with HCG I have been told.

    You sure you're not overtraining? If you're a gym rat, you can take out your T pretty easily for several days...

    Lack of sleep will do it too, even for young guys...
