    blood tests tommorow, quick advice.


    Had symptoms of low testosterone for years, had 2 blood tests and it went from 14-10.8 (10-30nmol/l is the range), i pushed for a endo refferal.

    Ive now seen the endo, and she didnt seem bothered it was that low, stating it was 'still in range'.

    She has asked about my symptoms etc and has booked me in tommorow for more tests.

    Im having a pitutiary profile, FSH, LH, testosterone and everything checked.

    Is there any way i can throw it out a bit so its a bit lower and within the range for treatment because im sick of feeling so tired?

    Also if i have a pitutiary problem will the LH be high or??

    Yeah u manipulate ur levels by using anabolics or certain other drugs, depending on what u have access to, and what type of time frame ur on.

    Don't go to sleep. =)

    If your LH/FSH is high, then your balls are not working. This will require androgel or test injections to get your test levels back up.

    If your LH/FSH is low, then your pituitary is not working. They will probably try clomid / hcg injects to try to 'jump start' your pituitary. If that fails, then you go to androgel or test injects.

    Have you given consideration to the fact that if your levels are in the normal ranges and the "endo" feels things ate normal that maybe the root cause of what you feel may be something else and until that is addressed you are likely to continue to feel that way??

    Don't workout. That can cause an increase in test levels. Serious.

    Nutritional deficiencies, over all stress, adrenal fatigue, depression seasonal or otherwise, thyroid imbalances, there are a ton of things. By all means continue with the tests, discuss your feelings with the doc and their findings. I just feel that trying to purposely skew the tests to give a result other than your norm could cause action to be taken that may not be needed and others that might be to be skipped over. Just food for thought brother.
