Low Testosterone ?
I am a 30 year old male 6'2 170lbs. I have been experiencing no sexual drive and erectile dysfunction. My testosterone level is 668 and free testosterone is 91. My prolactin is 7.8. My iron level is 83. My total iron binding capacity is 339. My hemoglobin is 14.5 and my HEMATOCRIT is 42 percent. My TSH is .50 and my B 12 is 527. All the labs were done with Quest except the B12 test. The reference range for the B12 is 250-813. I been drinking a of green tea capsules and extract from the vitamin shoppe so I dont know if that plays a role in it. I am getting a cortisol blood test, thyroid panel and estradiol blood test on wednesday.

ugh if.you drinking green tea in wrong epigenetic situation you are making matters potentially worse. It's all.linked.together just have to.be adverse in genetic snps to.fully understand what.damage.people.are doing thinking they.are doing something healthy ...Its the.health conscious are.ones.worse.of.then.general .population in most cases. Again you.need to.look at past.history and underlying pathology to.know.where to.start

Thanks for the reply. I am a vegetarian maybe that is why I have low vitamin B12. Does the Green tea tend to lower estrogen or raise it ?

Thank you very much for the advice Matrix. My doctor ordered more blood work . He ordered DHT, DHEA, Cortisol A.M, Cortisol, Total, and Estrodial. My Estradiol level is 33 reference range is <39. All the the test is done through Quest Diagnostics. I am waiting for all the test to come back .

Shbg may be elevated in vegan due to increased inflammation. ck.homocysteine levels. Doctors is on right path but.is.nickel and.dime on test. Needs to.get in there and get down to bottom of things. Next thing it.will.be 3-6 months.before you know it. Persons quality.of.life is a huge factor to.take.into consideration. Do 6 tests come.back in 2 months for.results is not.a good approach with typical medical.standards. I am just.more aggressive with cases.

Your free T is low, most likely cause is high SHBG and estrogen is up there as well.
WHat do you eat...might be the cause of your problem...not saying is the only cause but it would be a good point to start. Do you eat a lot fo soy?
Im not saying this because you are vegetarian either, is just something you eat most likely causing this.

I was taking the triple green capsules and I was also taking the green tea tinctures but I stopped a week ago. I also stopped taking milk thisle because they say milk thisle acts as a estrogen. My doctor ordered the FSH and LH blood test. Is that a good test to take ?

Higher SHBG has been linked with liver imbalances though..

I took it because I always read that milk thistle is good for your liver but in the last few months I been reading some articles that milk thistle acts as an estrogen when consumed so I stopped. Now I only take
Vitamin B complex
Amino Acid lysine, Arginine, tyrosine
Garlic, ginseng, tribulus and yohimbe

I also was diagnosed via MRI with and without contrast with a hemangioma in my liver so that was my other reason for taking milk thisle
