update. blood work but no libido?
ok here is my pre blood work. All i was on was thyroid medicine. complained of no sex drive, foggy brain, fat gain and energy. I am 27 years old.
t4, Free 1.27 .60-1.50
glucose 75 70-100
test total 283 241-827
tsh 4.66 .34-5.00
total free test 8.3 9.3-26.5
here are my new results on 250 test cyp a week its split into half and done on mon/thurs. also 1000 iu HCG twice a week. I Am going to a HRT doctor from a clinic.
t4free 1.5 .8-1.8
t3free 334 230-420
tsh 1.40 .40-4.50
fsh .7 1.6-8.0
dhea sulfate 113 110-510
progesterone 1.2 <1.4
shbg 7 7-49
igf-1 350 126-382
estrodial 25 0-50
ferritin 81 24-336
prolactin 1.6 2.1-17.7
dht 1005 155.0-553.0
total test 1012 241-1000
free test 50 9.3-26.5
cortisol total 11.4 4.0-22.0
OK so here is the problem. I have more energy, strength, fatloss, and clear mind but still no real drive. I am not depressed but I get kinda indifferent about alot of things. I have no sex drive what so ever and barely get morning wood in the morning. If i do get wood it is very week and about half the size it was. If a hot girl was next to me I would rather eat a sandwhich then **** her. haha No alpha male feeling I hear soo many talking about. NO libido at all!!!!! Strength is up but I no longer get that pumped feeling about things in life I once got. This is making life very rough for my age. I cant even get hard long enough to masterbate normally. Any ideas? thanks bros.

you could try some zma, 5htp, b12. all these should help but it happens to all of us, just work through it it usally goes away. try going for a run and getting the cardio up. just don't dwell on it you will come good !

t3free 334 230-420----->55%
your FreeT3 should be higher.
As of now you have only about half of the FreeT3 that you need.
If you can, get this tests for thyroid:
reverse T3 (rT3)
Thyroid Peroxidase and Thyroglobulin Antibodies (7260X)
How long are you taking 250mg/week T-cypionate?
We should see higher TT on that dose.
I am not saying that yout TT is low, just your response.
You may be low on selenium.
You have very low SHBG=7
You need TT~800
to get your FreeT~300 (using chart).
You may want to reduce average weekly dose but do EOD shots, every other day
For example 198mg/week
Each shot 28units=56mg
Eventually, even this dose should be to large.
Use 31Ga 5/16"long needle, 3/10cc
otherwise you will not be able to withstand this frequent shots.
Change HCG dose and schedule while you are at it.
On this large T dose your
estrodial 25 0-50
This is probably wrong test.
You should get
Likely your E2 is high and that may be reason for your lack of sex drive.
You must get correct test.
Do not fiddle with Arimidex without haveng test results.
Wrong levels of E2
gyno on one end
bone loss on the other end.
There is a guy on the other board, found himself with with large bone loss.
You may want to get DHEA-complete from LEF.org
and have one pill /day.

I take levoxyl 150mcg a day for my thyroid. Also if I just touch any antiestrogen my drive is even lower. So we know estrogen isnt high. Is it possible I have adrenal fatigue? I wake up tired and never fully charged. NO endorphins in my body what so ever! I know it is chemical somewhere... this cant just be me thinking about it too much. I am going to a real endo this week to see if he can help anymore then this HRT doctor. My current HRT doc suggests it is a neurotrasnmitter problem or something along those lines. I will suggest those blood tests to my new doc and see what happens. thanks again Janz

Keep this work in mind, even rather normal RT3/FreeT3 ratio
can hide host of problems.
Looking thru examples discussed in that work, I am thinking that in case when many things are tried without effect, it may be worth while to try flushing out RT3 for a while, just to see if that may help.

Low Shbg Means Somethings Going On With Insulin ..you Are On Way Too Much Crap And Will Cause More Problems Then Solution.

well can't the high insulin due to insulin resistence be due to out of whack adrenals? I know adrenals and thyroid being low can lower sbhg.. Certain hormones raise it and certain ones lower it. Once adrenals are back up that could help alot with insulin from what I understand.

so if i should drop down to jsut 150mg a week of test cyp wait a month and see if that helps? and get everything retested? have others with insulin resistance from low shbg noticed a difference after dropping their test down some?
