Amazing forum you guys have here!
I am 30 years old and have been suffering from extreme long term low T symptoms (fatigue/anxiety/no energy/hard time putting on muscle) - decided to get a blood test and here are the results:
TESTOSTERONE: [7.60 - 31.40] 7.53 nmol/L (217 ng/dl)
FREE-TESTOSTERONE(CALCULATED): [0.30 - 1.00] 0.225 nmol/L (6 ng/dl)
BETA OESTRADIOL: [0.00 - 191.99] 33.4 pmol/L (17 ng/dl)
SEX HORMONE BINDING GLOB: [16.00 - 55.00] 12.5 nmol/L
PROLACTIN: [86.00 - 324.00] 362 mIU/L (17ng/DL)
FSH: [1.50 - 12.40] 1.39 IU/L
LH: [1.70 - 8.60] 7.62 IU/L
Thyroid: All good
Last time I had a blood check 1.5 years ago, my Testosterone came back at 10 nmol/L (288 ng/dl) but NHS said normal range and wouldn't help.. so it was always quite lowish.
Observations: T obviously very low, SHBG is low (no idea why - maybe weight gain), Prolactin very slightly elevated but apparently doesn't seem to be anything to worry about, FSH quite low.
I have had low T symptoms for a very long time so I am not sure where to go from here.
It's going to be 3 months before I get to see an Endo, and there is nowhere private I can go around here.
Can the more experienced users tell me if this is definitely a case of Secondary Hypogonadism?
If so - what are my options? I have no idea where to go from here and I really hate the idea that I'll have to wait 3 months to see an Endo and probably 6+ months before I actually get on any type of treatment. I just want to feel better.
I am open to self prescribing (it's the route I would prefer to go) but I don't even know if TRT would work because of my low SHBG or low FSH, would love to hear from other users who had similar blood work (Low T / Low FSH / Normal LH).
