Hi guys. I’m confused by my lab results and can’t figure out what’s going on. My total T looks fine but how is my free T so low in comparison? And I have hypothyroidism but I am under medicated for it.
Total T: 1,180 ng/dL (range 250-1,100)
Free T: 118 pg/mL (range 53-207)
DHEA-S: 161 mcg/dL...

Never smoked, don't drink, no drugs, no medication, no accidents, no porn, no surgeries, good health, eat clean, don't work out a lot but pretty active.
First sexual symptom ever was age 37 when I noticed a little bit of decreased sensitivity because it took a few more...
I am a newbie, not on TRT, have never taken T or steroids, am 66 years old and have been working out since a teenager.
Just got blood tests done at Quest (thanks, Nelson, Discount Labs worked great) and got back:
T total 984
Free T 59.1
Bioavailable T 111.2
This is my most recent bloodwork (Pre TRT), can you help me understand the result for the bloodwork and calculators? I think I am on the lower end, but I might be wrong.
The symptoms that I am experiencing are lower libido, low quality erection, brain fog, mild anxiety (occasional but its...
Thanks for taking the time.
This is a follow up to my thread from last week (Total T > 1000 ng/dl (very high), Free T < 65 pg/ml (very low)).
Total and Free same deal as last time, and not surprisingly SHBG is super high. Is there anything else in there I should pay attention to? I'm 40yo, in...
I was on trt for a few years and came off to try and have kids. We have one on the way, so I'm weighing my options and thinking about going back on.
Labs from a few months ago:
Total T 570 246 - 916 ng/dl
Free T 7.3 8.7 -...

Please bear with me as I have a story to share and a number of questions. I'm 29 years old, about 6'1 215 20-22% BF, and been on TRT for over 7 years. I was diagnosed as primary with low testosterone (270 ng/dl), very high LH and FSH, small testicle volume (< kidney bean size), and...
I have finally decided to join and post after reading countless hours worth of material on all different types of sites related to TRT. Like many others I have read about on this site and others I have not felt like myself in many years. I am 38yrs old, 215lbs, 6' tall, medium...
Been on TRT for 2 months now. My TT midrange now but my free testosterone is still off the charts (low) so I'm not benefitting at all.

Okay guys, here's a little background...I'll be 58 next month. About 13 months ago I started lifting weights after being away from the gym for 25 years. I'm 5' 11" and at that time was weighing 168 lbs.
