    Low Testosterone. Please Help


    Hey fellas, I need your help and expertise. I have been diagnosed with low testosterone and hypothyroid.

    History: Approx 2 yrs ago I finished a 4 week superdrol cycle. Followed it with PCT: Nolvadex XT and nolvadex (tamoxifen). I started cutting after I finished.. very little carbs, lots of protein and stimulants. Got down to 200. I think during that time I hurt my thyroid and eventually exhausted my adrenals. (Got sleepy after coffee is a good sign) About a year after when I began working full time I knew something was up. Eventually had blood work done and found my total testosterone was 136 and thyroid was on the verge of hypo. T4 .05 and TSH 1.99. T3 2.64. I was referred to an endo and she found my LH in addition to testosterone was low. I had an MRI and found a very minor adenoma on my pituitary. Sometimes these can or cannot cause low LH/FSH levels. She put me on thyroid and TRT because she felt there was no way to recover my natural. I didn't get better even though my labs showed my test up, from TRT, and my thyroid was in the right ranges. Still tired, anxiety, adema, etc... I swtiched doctors. He put me on HCG (w/o clomid or nolva) I demanded to be put on clomid/nolvadex but he said it wasn't necessary. My test levels jumped to 540 only to fall back to 130. In addition to low testosterone my body temperature is 97.8 and won't budge with all the Armour I throw at it (T4/T3). Currently on 6 grains. I think its Wilson's Syndrome: A buildup of Reverse T3 blocking T4-T3 conversion.

    What do you guys think?

    Thanks

    Try Trib / Dhea / Zinc To Help recover your natural test.

    Or For your adrenal glands supp magnesium to bring your glands back to normal I take 500Mg Each Morning/Night As well with Zinc.

    Because if you have low test... Im assuming your Sex Drive is underground,

    Also get lots of nuts in your diet to help give you poly/mono saturated fats which help regulate your test.

    You might find more help in the male Anti-Aging Medicine subcategory. There's guys over there with experience in hCG and HPTA. But since you posted this in the diet section, I suggest trying to get saturated fats which are the precursors to steroid hormones (i.e. testosterone). An easy form that I like is coconut oil, nuts are also good and eggs are mother nature's great source!

    When you said your T levels jumped to 540 on hCG then dropped to 130, did they fall after you stopped hCG? Perhaps your hypothalamus was still suppressed, recovery can take months -years in some cases.

    What about theoretically when are you are on cycle, get shut down near the end of the cycle, and have a loss of libido. Your test levels should be through the friggin roof at that point, even if it ain't "homemade" :P

    Just a thought

    Well when your on your cycle yes your injecting test but unless u continue to increase your Libido should shut down and towards the end of the cycle because your natural test is completely shut off because your applying synthetic test. Thus the reason your nuts shrivel up, is due to the fact that your natural test is turned off, therefore they are not in use, so you get grapenuts .
