    Finally got Bloodwork, a few questions

    everything is unremarkable and I'm being told my test is "normal" at Total: 370 FT: 6.3, but from the stickies and other things I've read you want to be in the top third.
    age 44
    5'11"
    weight 190
    bf 17-20%
    decent diet, dont gym, do cardio and move heavy objects

    symptoms: lethargy, decreased libido, mood and irritability. My doc said he will most likely give me a prescription next week when I see him. Is there anything I should be asking for? dosage, type, etc. he seems pretty down to just make me happy and healthy.

    I have full blood work if needed but all is well sep a borderline cholesterol (200) I have made the proper dietary moves to help this.

    Thanks, Jim

    What's the range on your FT?
    Do you know LH/FSH?
    Curious if you checked thyroid, prolactin, cortisol, etc. The things that can impact endogenous T production?

    If all is relatively normal it very well could just be your time for HRT. Google and take the Adam Questionairre.

    I dont see FSH/LH nor did he mention it, but my TSH result was 0.969. I have a follow up next week.

    Sorry the range indicated on the print out was 249-846 is normal. Is that what you were asking for?

    Thanks

    Well, I'd talk to him about some of the other tests I mentioned. It's always prudent to rule things out so if TRT is actually indicated you go into it with a clear conscience. LH and FSH are important as they indicate pituitary function which will help to determine where the issue lies.
