I will try to keep a long story short. I am 28 and the last two years of my life, health wise, have gone to hell. I lift regularly and my diet is pretty clean. About a year ago, I had blood work done and it showed low testosterone. I was tested for some other things and found out I had thyroid issues and low test. I have tried some more natural therapies and they did not work for me. Each time I get tested, it seems my test value and TSH rise and fall in wave. So does how I feel. My highest total test has been 430 and lowest 212. My TSH ranges from 3.5 - 9.0. I constantly sweat in ac and have put on 30-40 lbs of fat. I am currently 228 at 5'8". I do have a decent amount of mass but it is truly covered up with the extra weight. At my best I was at 205 at 5% BF. The doctor I am seeing is a MD. He like to try holistic approaches first but has no problem prescribing anything. He has put me on Armour thyroid, but my TSH still fluctuates. He has me on compunded test cream at 300mg a day with chrysin in it. I believe that it is converting to estrogen and will be confirming this with blood work next week. I have used AS before but never abused them. My body reacted well to small doses. The question I have is what direction, as far as therapy, I should go. I am pretty damn tired of having one good month to three bad. If anyone has any experience with this please chime in and let me know. Thanks.
