    just got my test checked

    so I just got my test levels checked and it looks like im low. I got 7.4 when the range is 8.8-28. how bad is that? Could it explain my frustration in gaining size.

    Anything else tested? Definitly low but can't help you pinpoint anything without further testing. And yes, it can impact gains. Getting mine corrected (it was abysmal due to a pituitary adenoma) made all the difference in the world.

    they tested a bunch of stuff to see if their was anything physically wrong with me that is making me feel tired and irritable as they treated me for depression like symptoms. the test was the one they were focusing on. Im hoping I can just take a shots and feel better.

    should have mentioned, the rest of the blood work seemed to be in range.

    What's the math to convert those numbers to ng/dl?

    Well, considering most docs don't know trt. Many doc's throw out the number 800 (ng/dl) or so as a general reference but it should be based on your free testosterone level, not your TT level. It's why TRT should be started at a lower number (of mg's per week) and then titrated up based on results, needs and patient feedback. Starting at an elevated dose and then having to mitigate sides is not the correct path, imho.
