    Suspected low T

    Hello, recently had a blood test for suspected Low T

    GP came back and said in its in normal range, but i am sceptical after my own research, so i thought i would ask here


    Now according to records, average Total T for men of my age 24 to 34 should be 274 1075 ng/dL
    and Free T should be 4.65 19.0 ng/dL

    these averages include men of all ranges, from the perfectly healthy to the incredibly diseased/unwell

    now, i am "Perfectly healthy" as in i have no chronic physical conditions

    My blood results are

    Total T - 392.2512 ng/dL

    Free T - 8.7391 ng/dL


    according to "Averages" this puts me relatively low considering my otherwise perfect physical health correct?

    Your doctor is technically correct. You are in normal range. Good doctors will treat symptoms, not numbers.

    How is your diet, training and recovery? What are your current stats, HT, WT, bodyfat percent estimate, etc?

    Diet is solid, Ketogenic diet so high fat med protein low carb

    Training is very hard both getting the motivation to go and do it, and actually doing it, recovery is worse, aches and pains for days after training despite training regularly

    Height 5ft 11"

    Weight 168 ish lbs

    BF % estimated 16% ish

    Also, "Symptoms" wise

    i have suffered Depression since i was 25, under control with anti depressants but no "Better"
    i also have lack of sleep, increasingly lower and lower libido, difficulty keeping BF in check despite good diet, all signs of Low T

    How old are you now?

    I would order more blood work, but exactly what depends on your age. Definitely a thyroid panel, cbc, lipid panel. Maybe a few others, but those are a good start. DHT and PSA if you are over say 40
