I am 36, and I have had many of the symptoms of low T for many years. I have sleep apnea, and many of the symptoms are the same, so I thought my issues were sleep related. After getting bloodwork and starting on provigil, some of the sleep deprivation issues have cleared up, but I still have all signs of low T.
My origional bloodwork (last Oct) Showed Total T: 409, and free T of 9.7. Doc said that I was within range, so I was "normal", so it can't be a T problem.
I stopped all vitamins and supliments that I have been taking for three weeks, and just did the "cheap female hormone test" that is listed here in the forums...
Test in serum: 296
What are my next step? My general doc that I go to would be worthless, and I have self-referral under my insurance.
What other bloodwork and such do I need to make an accurate determination, and does anyone have advice on a doc to see in Maryland? I really don't want to play roulette with this and try to find a doc with a clue on my own.
