    28 y/o Male

    Testosterone - 428.8 ng/dL

    Free Test - 0.80 ng/dL

    Testosterone, % Free 0.19 L


    Edit: Lab appointed Normal Ranges

    Test: 241-850
    Free Test: 0.62-2.81
    % Free: 0.32-0.51

    Avg for 28 y/o Male should be around 700+ and 2.0

    Way way low :(


    Guess that's why I have to work so F'n hard to stay ripped.

    Post the normal ranges that the lab uses for those tests. Each lab has a different range.

    Also, did you get anything else measured? Prolactin, estradiol, LH, FSH, DHT etc?

    None of the others that you mentioned got measured, but I did edit the original post to include the ranges.

    its a bit worthless to test your testosterone levels without testing at the very least estrogen levels.

    you are likely eliglible for HRT, though if estrogen is the issue the use of low to moderate doses of aromasin or AIFM could easily bring your T levels up significantly

    What would you recommend as far as a blood test for an annual checkup?

    Doctors typically just want to check cholesterol, glucose, minerals etc...

    Given that I am a 32yr old male who is about to muck with his normal hormone levels through use of your AIFM product.

    Hypothetically what would happen if I did like 20 weeks of test and then went to the doctor a few weeks after I stopped and said I had a low sex drive and all that shit and got tested?

    depends on doctor really, if your GP is good he will admit it's not his field and will refer you to an endo. from there, if the endo is competent he will look at various things.. then he will send you for an mri to check your pituatary gland, etc.. it all depends on who you get. mikes doctor was a crackpot for example, others will look at you and laugh if you assert you have low test.

    well to be honest it depends on where you live too. you live in AL, not a good place for HRT. CA / FL is much better in this regard as they are the 2 leading states of HRT prescriptions.. docs are more keen on it here.

    i think its still worth a shot though (PUN LOL)

    I've actually become quite curious lately as to the current average testosterone level of the American male. It isn't something that is routinely checked, most people will go their whole lives without getting it tested. To deny that the environment isn't at least partially responsible would be silly, at least now more people are aware of low levels of estrogens being in our drinking water thanks to the latest news reports.

    I would almost be willing to bet that if everyone here just in OTFN got their test checked, they might be surprised, hell like you said almost EVERYONE that gets it checked ends up on fucking HRT FO LIFE BABY!!!

    You laugh every time the issue comes up, why? I can atTEST that it isn't fun being depressed and lethargic all the time and not knowing why. If you truly think it is as funny as you come across, then I hope your nuts fall off completely :p
