    Age 22: Low Test on Bloodwork - Hop on TRT?

    I posted this in another section but I was advised to post this here, so here it is.

    Got bloodwork done for a physical two days ago, I asked for a testosterone test just out of curiosity. First test came back putting me on the low end of the spectrum and it was a concern for my doctor so he asked me to do bloodwork again today at 8am (when test peaks) to see if that was any better. There was an improvement, but the numbers were still low. For total test, bloodwork 1 showed my levels at about 400, for bloodwork 2, my test levels were about 550. My free test was especially low in both according to the doc. The specific values from both bloodwork results are attached below.

    The doctor is on the fence about putting me on TRT. I'm wondering if I may as well hop on as I've been considering gear for a while (but was planning on waiting another few years, though this is somewhat affecting my opinion)

    Stats:

    Age: 22
    Height 5'11"
    Weight: 182 lbs
    BF: 10-11%
    Training time: coming up on 4 years of strict bodybuilding training

    I very much respect the opinions of the people on this board so I'm curious what you all think. My mind is not at all set on what to do at this time.

    Teatosterone test results 1 and 2 and then results from lipid panel and metabolic panel

    I have had consistently similar numbers over the past 4 years

    Total test usually somewhere in the 400-550 range and free test is always a couple points above the minimum baseline

    Questions:

    Any recent gear usage?
    Are you on any medications?
    Suffered any head or testicular trauma?

    Also, the blood work you posted is really not sufficient. All it really shows is your test levels which are low. Why are they low is the question. We need to see LH, FSH, E2 Sensitive, Prolactin, Cortisol and a full thyroid panel consisting of at least TSH, FT3, FT4, RT3 and antibodies. Something is suppressing you and these will help to clue us in. All the items I just mentioned can contribute to low T, as can pathologies or the first 3 questions I asked. All this will help you determine whether the issue is primary, secondary or somewhere in between.

    To the poster above (sorry can't figure out how to quote on this mobile app) I've never touched any gear or anything that should suppress testosterone levels . The bloodwork I posted is unfortunately all I have until next time I get checked, which could be a while because I don't have any serious reason to go get bloodwork done and my insurance is pretty shit atm.

    I was considering buying some d aspartic acid and doing 2 week on/off cycles to see if I felt like that made a difference for me. Does anyone that that would be worth it or just a waste of time? Should I consider hopping on test? I appreciate all feedback sincerely

    Check out the Finding a Physician sticky for a complete list of tests you'll want to get.

    Before anyone tells you to hop on Testosterone , they'll need a better picture of what's going on.
