Hi all. Been a while since posting as nothing much has changed regarding unwanted symptoms. Doctors and Endo seem to have left it all with me. The only thing the Endo could tell me was that I needed more Oestrogen so he raised my HRT dose.
I decided to get a blood test done to check my Testosterone levels after reading about some of the symptoms it causes, flushing/sweating, weight gain, hair loss, and fatigue. All of which I still suffer with. My levels came back as Result: 0.087 ----- Range: 0.10 - 1.42. The note said to see doctor as level was low.
When I mentioned it to the doctor she told me to go back to the doctor I got the results from and get treated there as she wouldn't of looked at Testosterone levels for my symptoms. Taken aback, I told her it was an online blood test, but she is still reluctant to investigate Testosterone levels, she said they fall anyway as you get older. She put my fatigue and flushing down to getting older too(!) So just when I thought I might be getting somewhere, it all fell flat.
If I could raise my levels with supplements rather than medication that would be better for me. But I'm concerned that while I'm not taking anything to help, it will only get worse. Can it get worse?
Any info, much appreciated. Thank you x
