I know it's probably getting tedious, all the people asking for opinions on their blood work results. But it's just such a valuable thing to have (the perspectives of other like-minded, similarly concerned people who might have been around the block on the topic more than I have)...
Basically, I'm 35 and have been feeling lower and lower energy and libido steadily pretty much every year for about 5 years. At first I thought it might be thyroid, then depression, then that it was all in my head, etc. But I've more and more just been finding myself feeling like it's classic low T. Particularly as I've been getting seemingly more and more quiet, feeble, low confidence, even mental acuity going downhill. It seems like the only times I feel alive are in the hours right after a workout where I have recovered from the energy expenditure and am experience the PWO high.
Would anyone be willing to share the thoughts they have upon seeing these numbers? The thing is that everything seems to be in range. I'm happy to see that it looks like I'm healthy. But unhappy there's no obvious explanation for the problems I am having and that I feel are making my life much poorer than it was only a few years ago. I would still like to find a wife and have kids, for example, but feel that in my current state I do not "have what it takes" to achieve these goals :/
Any suggestions on what you would do if you were feeling some of the things I've described but had the blood numbers shown below?
TSH 2.5 uIU/mL (0.45-4.5)
Thyroxine 8 ug/dL (4.5-12.0)
T3 31% (24-39)
Free Thyroxine Index 2.5 (1.2-4.9)
Testosterone 546 (348-1197)
Testosteron Free 14.14 (5-21)
% Free Test 2.59 (1.5-4.2)
Prostate Specific Ag, Serum 0.6 (0-4.0)
IGF-1 196 (115-307)
Estradiol 9 pg/mL (3-70)
