Been following this site for a while, but this is my first post. I am a 40 year old male, and have been suffering with symptoms of Low T, for quite some time now (2+ years), I approached my doctor about this, who believes it isn't hormone related, and it is a form of depression. I am now on my 3rd different type of Anti-D, with no success. I took matters in my own hands, and obtained blood results via Medichecks regarding my hormones,, plus lots of other things. Most things came back fine, except Testosterone, which were, Test = 11.4nmol/L, and Free Test = 0.256nmol/L.
So if you look at my results against the guidelines, I am just within lower range of total Test, and out of range (lower), for free Test. What are peoples opinions on these results? I believe it vindicates my original thoughts, that this is what I am suffering from, with the symptoms I have. How do people think my doctor will take these results, and will he do anything with them? Will he take more notice of Total Test, and say I am in range, or take into account my Free Test, and refer me on? Am I within my rights to be referred on?
I am back in the doctors on Monday as a follow up to my Anti-D medication and want to have as much info available as possible to me. If anyone has any additional info, feedback or experience, I would very much appreciate it.
