30 years old. Low test possible?

  1. 30 years old. Low test possible?


    So for the past year or two I have been experiencing what may be low test I think. Weak feeling in the gym, tired, missing lots of gym days, not very competitive, sensations during sex seem weak, but no problem with libido. Does this sound like low test?

    It very likely could be. It could also be several other things, too. I'd recommend getting some blood work done to check this out. Based on what you said, I'd look at:

    total testosterone
    free testosterone
    estradiol
    SHBG (possibly)

    There are plenty of other things that could be looked at, too, but I'd start with the first 3 for sure.

    Where have you served in the Military?
    You need to ask your self WHY?

    Where was your e2, thyroid, and adrenal reading. Thats right the Dr did not do them but in your case were essential. Armed forces typical PSTD may have made a major impact. When dealing with these cases I would not ventured so much on testosterone, but look outside other areas before TRT.

  9. I have another appt on friday. Ill bring up the e2, thyroids,and adrenal readings. Thanks

    They will not know how to properly evaluate them, most Dr's do not.

  11. Any news on this Sniper? Interested in seeing what they had to say.

  12. Yes. The doctor wont test e2,lh,fsh,adrenals or shbg. Says its not necessary. Gave me a prescription for androgel and sent me on way.

    ANDROGEL!? Dam was hoping to see he would get you something better, read lots of (not too horrible) reviews on it and it doesn't seem that great for someone with a bodybuilding hobby.

  14. Im goin to labcorp on my own for the rest of the tests. Ill just pay out of pocket. The doctor wont prescibe injections until they see how I respond to androgel. Im not gonna take it until I get these other tests done. Still worried about the fact I dont have an ai or hcg if I take the gel or injections. This doctor says thats not necessary cause im not on bodybuilding doses. I got to get these other readings!!!

    Good luck man. Its a sin to enjoy lifting these days it seems, doctors have a habit of not trusting their own patients, its sad.
