Just wanted to see what everyone thought.
I HAVE NEVER DONE A CYCLE OF ANABOLICS. Need to say that first as this is NOT a before and after look at my levels on a cycle. This is just "where are my levels at age 35" plus I had some bad anxiety issues effecting libido two months ago.
I'm 35 years old, workout 4-5 days a week, 190lbs, 12% bf, overall feel like I'm in great shape. Went through a crazy anxiety period in January and it caused libido to drop significantly, irritability, lack of sleep, etc. It felt like anxiety plus exhaustion. My PSA was also elevated for my age. Here are my follow-up results below. First test was done January 18 in Australia. Overall, these results are a HUGE improvement.
OLD RESULTS - Feb. 7, 2012
Oestradiol - 86 pmol/L ( <160 )
Total Testosterone - 20.2 (11.5 - 32.0) ****UP from previous bloodwork 3 weeks prior ***
SHBG - 28 nmol/L (15 - 50)
Free Androgen Index (FAI) - 72.1 % (15 - 100)

NEW RESULTS - Mar. 21, 2012 - I don't know why these are in bold letters
Total Test- 511 (348 - 1197) ***Worried as the median number for 35-44 y/olds is 668. How does this compare to my Free Test?***
Free Test - 18.14 (5.0 - 21.0)
% Free Test - 3.55 (1.5 - 4.2)
FSH - 2.3 (1.5 - 12.4) ***Worries me that this is so low in the range***
LH - 2.9 (1.7 - 8.6) ***Worries me that this is so low in the range***
IGF -1 - 221 (115 - 307)
Estradiol, Sensitive - 12 (3 - 70)
SHBG - 26.2 (16.5 - 55.9)
TSH, T4, T3 uptake, FTI - HAPPY to report all in perfect middle range!!!!
PSA - 1.2 (0.0 - 4.0) ***Lower than last time, but still high for my age - concerned***
Guys, any thoughts on the NEW results vs. the old? How do my levels look in general?
1) What does a low-normal FSH and LH mean? Does this effect fertility, libido, etc?
2) How can I increase my FSH and LH? Do I need to?
3) Do OTC test-boosters like DAA, Triazole, etc. effect natural production in the long-term? Should I stay away from these products?
-I have taken 3 cycles of these products in the last 3 years. Don't really feel I need them, but I find they do help a bit in the gym, but I don't want to hurt my natural production of anything.
I feel pretty good overall!!! Intensity, aggression, libido is still pretty good, but noticed it isn't what it was 5 years ago.
