I'm 32 years old, from Sweden.
I don't have any sideburns and hardly and body hair. Some facial hair as in a mustache and small goatee. I work out alot (4-6 days) a week; both very heavy strength training and intense cardio. I'm 187 cm tall and weigh quite little, 72 kg.
Recently I decided to check out my hormones and I got the following values:
S-Cortisol: 730 (170-700) nmol/L
S-FSH: 7,5 (1,5-13) IE/L
S-LH: 4,2 (1,7-8,6) IE/L
S-Prolaktin: 520 (90-330) mIE/L
S-SHBG: 88 (14-48) (??)
P-ALAT (liver) 1,8 (<1,2) (??)
P-TSH, P-T4, creatinine etc etc are completely normal. Lowish hemoglobin: 128 (134-170), lowish B-EVF: 0,38 (0,39-0,50), lowish B-erythrocytes: 4,1 (4,2-5,7)
So, I also did another test and got the answer saying that my free testosterone is really low due to my high SHBG. Something with the liver was elevated, HOWEVER, we did another test because of that and the value was completely normal and low again. I've read that P-ALAT can get elevated naturally when overeating etc without cause for alarm. Also I did another short checkout earlier, and my S-testosterone was 30, SHBG 80 (...) and normal P-ALAT.
So...wtf is up with this?
* I'm overtraining
* My muscles are using up my quite high s-testosterone which makes the body raise SHBG to keep the leftovers bound and not be excreted
* My weight is low. It was 70 kg (I'm 187 cm tall) at the last test and the doctor told me to try and gain weight to see if SHBG went down.
* I've been eating lots of fiber, no milk and hardly wheat for the last couple of years. All negative in regards to SHBG, if you want to lower it.
* My liver is ****ed. Or maybe not.
Dunno. Ideas? I've got bad motivation, lowish sexual desire, a bit of constant depression etc. I've got a youthful appearance.
