can anyone in Australia (Sydney or Brisbane areas) suggest a specialist to see that is not conservative and could help???

I changed my diet in late may as I was carrying too much weight, and to help with the glucose intolerance.
I feel I have always had low levels, and have recently found out that my father also suffers from low libido. Is it hereditary???

So hat is why it has dropped from 12.8 to 11.8 over the last tree months...

yes, am still on diet, restriting carb intake

Since the end of may I have dropped from 107 kg (235lb) down to 93kg (204lb) by diet and exercise. I am just over 6'1". My blood sugar IS under control for now. In early May I was diagnosed as being glucose intolerant after having a high reading taken while in hospital for mental health issues.
My Gp is happy with these levels, it was just the endocrinologist focused heavily on these as I was just a couple of points off having T2 diabetes. I am having no symptoms from the sugar levels. The endocrinologist also put me on diabex - I dont really know why.

I saw an endocrinologist a week ago. my T  levels are around 11.8 - 12.7 (340 - 366). the endocrinologist basically did not listen to me and I felt shut down and was more interested in my glucose intolerance than my testosterone.

I feel as though I am arguing with my doctor as well as he does not see that I have a problem and not to believe everything you read on the net. after seeing them my mood has been sent even lower.

does anyone have any suggestions of where to go??? I am at a total loss as what to do next...

Thanks for the reply, I hadn't seen that information on roboxetine, very interesting, I also have quite a few of the sideaffects including raising my blood pressure. I hate being on it, but feel it is working - along with some lamotrigine. I just dont know where you get the idea that results have been doctored to suit the company :).

As you may have guessed, I am not in the U.S., I come from the once great Land of  Australia - just North of Sydney and am trying to find the right endocrinologist.

I am putting many of the suggestion to get out of this depression, particularly regular excercise - gym three times a week but find I can only do 40 mins of cardio stuff before I almost totally collapse, My shirt is always soaked after this, another symptom/side affect. I have lost 10 kg (22lb) in the last two months, and am currently at 96kg (211) and am aiming to drop to  about 88kg (193) which is about right for my 6'2" height.

Thanks for your help

I am a 43 yo and have just found out I have low T levels. I have had severe depression over the last 12 months and have no libido left. I was told it was just the medication - Edronax. I am also insulin resistant.
When I got the first Test back 12.8nmol (369) and was told that's in the normal range, but at least I was forewarned by this website. I said not really, I have T levels that are lower than the average 93 yo. I was given a second lot of tests :

Testosterone    12.7   nmol   (8.0 36)   (366 ng/dl)
Shbg                  43   nmol   (17-66)
Fai                     29.5%   (23.3 103)
Free testost.   216   pmol   (170-500)

I am a little confused how these figures relate to everything.
I have an appointment with an endocrinologist at the end of August.
