I've been lurking around for a while I was waiting for a second set of results - fantastic forum by the way - absolutely tons of information and advice!
Anyway - I'm 39 and a keen runner averaging 35-45 miles per week. Over the last couple of years I started noticing symptoms with ED, a reduction in lack of morning wood, mood swings, grumpiness, night time urination etc.
So the doc did a blood test (at around 10am) that returned 15 nmole/L (432 ng/dL). After a bit of persuasion I got him to do another test at around 5:30pm. The results were:
LH: 1.4 U/L (1.0.-9.0)
FSH: 2.8 U/L (1.0-10.0)
Prolactin: 118 mU/L (60-500)
Testosterone: 9.0 nmol/L (10-30) (259 ng/dL)
SHBG: 22 nmol/L (6-45)
Calc Free Testosterone: 206 pmol/L (245-785) (5.93ng/dL)
Albumin: 47 g/L (35-50)
After this he recommended another am (9:45am this time) Calc Free Test. It came back with:
Testosterone: 11.7 nmol/L (337 ng/dL)
SHBG: 28 nmol/L
Calc Free Testosterone: 249 pmol/L (7.18 ng/dL)
Albumin: 45 g/L
So - according to the NHS ranges I'm borderline low (if you count 5 pmol/L in the calc free test result!). I'm back to see the docs on Monday to discuss what's next. I reckon I'll get referred to an endo. What do you guys think of the results? From reading tons of posts on the forum it appears that my gonads are working to a certain degree. Do you think that the clomid/HCG route is the way to go?
