My blood test came back and my T is fine around 750, My concern is the T free is 5.1 and chart says 7 to 24
and my estradiol was really high and should be in 20s or 30s and was 84. My Growth Hormone also was 0.1.
just really concerned and workout
4 days a week not overweight and eat very healthy. If anyone could suggest anything to help i would really
appreciate it just dont know what else to do, my 3rd test in a year and hasnt changed
ive tried a ton of different supplements as well
I do not take any testosterone
Free T is a little controversial on these boards and others, as results can vary a lot suggesting biometric reliability problems with free T. But assuming that value is true, it could fit with high estradiol well, in that estradiol increases sex hormone binding globulin, which lowers free testosterone.
Low growth hormone could indicate a pituitary problem, such as hypopituitarism. I'd strongly recommend adding more pituitary hormones to see if you're hypopituitary, the big four being ACTH (which stimulates the adrenals, especially cortisol), growth hormone/IGF-1, TSH (which stimulates thyroid hormones), and LH/FSH, of which LH stimulates testosterone (and FSH sperm production).
So if you wanted to get a bigger picture, ask your doc for cortisol and ACTH (might consider aldosterone if you have symptoms of salt-wasting -- look it up), TSH, free T3, and free T4, and LH/FSH with free and total testosterone again. GH stimulates testosterone, so maybe your GH is low because testosterone is low.
You also might want to consider asking about an MRI to check your pituitary to rule out a pituitary adenoma (which is almost always benign and treatable).
Estradiol is definitely way too high, and could by itself be causing your free T to be so low. There could be a few reasons for this: if you're overweight, zinc deficient, and so on. (See Peak's main page on estradiol and how to lower it: http://www.peaktestosterone.com/Estrogen_Controlling
, and other pages.) There's such a thing as anastrozole monotherapy where people with high estradiol get on an aromatase inhibitor (which converts testosterone to estradiol) and that by itself both decreases estradiol and raises free T, leading to reduction in symptoms.
But I'd say get all the stuff I rec'd above checked out. You have a lot of options.
