thanks for the long term updates. too often these things never get shared and we all wonder what happened (especially if we are in the same boat).

Well annual physical results came back today to update this thread.
Total T 690 scale 250-1100
Free T 61.3 scale 46-224
Bioavailable T 123.5 scale 110-575
SHBG 50 scale 10-50
DHT 43 scale 16-79
Preg 32 scale 13-208
Estradiol 21 scale less than or equal to 29
DHEA 141 scale 80-560
LH 4.1 scale 1.5-9.3
My anemia is gone as Ferritin and Iron levels are back to normal. No longer donate blood.
Cholesterol values are outstanding
Picture of good health.
Dr. was happy. I am not as I see my T declining from when I first started back in 2012.(but I had high SHBG back then see first post) I recall what someone here wrote about their SHBG being in locked step with their total T. I feel good and train hard seven days per week. Eat well. Good libido. Sex every day. But I see the Free T on the low end of the scale and wonder if I could be better. Dr. Does HRT at his clinic but said no to me as I do not fit the criteria either in test results or factors mentioned above- energy, libido, mood, etc.
Dr. did say my DHEA and Preg should be higher and put me back on OTC Preg. I stopped for the previous 8 months or so.
Wonder what I can do to gain more Free T. I mean in 2012 I was more than middle range, then a bit less than middle range and now low end of the range.
NB: Not into selfie pics but I took a recent one from August so you see how much improvement there has been since pic in avatar. Its in the album. So I do not think it is BF that is causing the issue.

You know I reread my posts and realized how miserable I felt in 2012 compared to how good I feel now. I should not be complaining about a test result if everything else is going well.

If you feel fine and things are working, then you can relax a bit. If things aren't perfect, you can still pursue more information and improvements. I'm glad things became better for you.
