I'll try to keep this long story short. For over a couple of years now
I've been having low test sides. My sex drive is now non existent and
is causing relationship problems for me. So I went to the endo last
summer and had blood work done. I've had 3 tests over the course of
the last year to confirm the problem. I am 27yrs old.
Here are the blood results from 3 different blood tests over the year.
Total Serum Test 527-613ng
Free Test 1.0-1.4%
Free Test 23-31pg
Salivary Cortisol .9-1.7
Serum/Plasma Cortisol 7.7ug
Norepinephrine, Plasma 250pg
Epinephrine Plasma 48pg
Free Thyroxine 1.17ng
Thyroid, Insulin Resistance, and Cortisol seemed to check out. I had a Pituitary MRI the checked out fine. I was however found to have very low levels of Vitamin D, so I have supplemented that for 12 months. Looking back this a almost certainly a lifelong condition as I've dealt with similar symptoms all my life. My questions why are my free test levels so low and what can I do to feel better?
Symptoms/History: My body has gone from "in shape" 10%BF, to skinny fat with a spare tire that WILL NOT go away regardless of proper diet/training. I lost some musclemass over the last 2 years in spite of heavy Main lifts and Olympic weightlifting. Morning errections are getting rare with about 3 per week max. Errections are becoming more and more of a problem, Interest in sex is non existent. I'm Generell motivation and memory are all all bad. Is hormone replacement the best option for my symptoms or should I try another route? I believe I'm too young to get Hormon replacement therapy and want to get to the root of the problem and solve this puzzle.
Thanks in advance for any useful input
