Low test blood results. (Un-fudged!)

Good morning everyone. So those who don't know I made a post about my low t levels and the doc not being interested and so asked for advice on how to fudge the test.

It came to crunch time and I backed out after reading conflicting stories and not having meds available to fudge the test so I went in and got tested normally. Fasted.

The results came back and I've just seen the quack who tells me I have low test. He said serum free test should be between 7-14 for my age and I'm sitting at 5.5

He still seemed to think this is low but isn't exremely low but had referred me to an endo anyway.

I'm hoping wih my results and symptoms they should be able to put me on some trt to fix this problem.

Lh fsh levels and liver kidney functions are all normal.

What are you guys levels before trt?
Btw they didn't test free test for some reason.

    How old are you mate? 5.5 is extremely low. Have you done a lot of cycles and quite recently?

    I got TRT through a psychiatrist, due to long standing depression, very low energy and anxiety, which have been resistant to anti-depressants.

    My level was 14 nmol, and the psych was on board with the idea of age appropriate T levels, rather than a vast range of 11 to 35.

    He's also had previous experience & success with TRT for depression symptoms.

    I found endos were crap - having seen them twice.

    I've felt like I've had low T for 15 years, last cycle of AAS was over a decade ago.

    Hello mate. No not done any long cycles or recently anyway. I'm 32. I've always had test in the low range of the scale for my age since a teen. I don't think aas helped but I don't think it was the only cause

    I'm excited tjst my journey has taken a positive turn and there could be some light at the end of the proverbial tunnel.

    Just hope the endo is supportive as self administration. Isn't an option.

    It's worrying yes! So considering I'm still holding 220lb at 20% fat that's not bad going. But the downside is I feel like horse sh1t if horse sh1t had feelings of course

    Doesnt surprise me. I tested 4.3 on my first bloods. The gp who i was seeing knew it was low but consulted one of the senior gp's who is one of the partners at the practice and he said it wasnt that low !!!!!!!!! Luckily she referred me though. It still took 9 months and two more tests which were 4.4 and 5.3 if i remember correctly. At age 37\38 that was ridiculous. Imagine having a broken arm and having to wait 9 months before they "decide" to treat you. It's fukcin barbaric!!!!!! bunch of cnuts.

    Has anyone else gone the psychiatrist route to TRT? Emphasising how cr*p low T is making your mental well being?

    As above, I found the 2 endos I saw were very much against TRT.

    I live near Brighton, so if anyone's local, I'm happy to give you the name of the psych I'm seeing.

    Top notch guy, did thyroid, B vitamins, red blood count & T levels, with an approach of investigating physical causes before doling out anti-depressants... The exact opposite to GPs, who think just giving out anti-depressants and sending you on your way, solves everything.
