    I think I suffer from low testosterone levels. This is why I think I do -


    I have two major diseases, one is Primary Scleroscing Collingitis (sp?). It is a liver disorder where you do not produce enough non-toxic bile. The toxic bile backs up in your liver and causes infection and scarring.

    The other is Ulcerative Collitis. Basically ulcers of the colon.

    Up until the time where I began to notice there was something wrong with me I was at the gym 4-6 times/week, always had energy (this was at about 17-18). When the diseases began to become a problem I noticed right away. I constantly feel like I have a head cold, minus the runny nose, congestion, all that. More so just the feeling of not being all there mentally. I contribute that to my complete and utter lack of energy.

    I work a normal job, 8-4:30, Monday-Friday. HD mechanic to be more prescise. On my feet all day, always moving, climbing in and out of and on and off of trucks. I sleep about 8 hours a night on work days, and upwards on 12 hours on friday nights and saturdays. I have taken long naps on work days. Eat dinner at 6:30, and go to bed before 8. Sleep right until 7 when I have to get up and go to work. I feel more refreshed, but at the end of the day I am still just as worn out as any other day no matter the amount of sleep i've gotten.

    I am on pills for both medical problems, if it matters they are Asacol (1600mg/day) and Urso DS (1600mg/day). The symptoms of the urso are related to memory loss and lack of energy.

    I am almost thinking that the pills, combined with the problems, have had an effect on my natural levels of enzymes in the body that help with energy levels. Testosterone is the most major one that I can think of. It probably also doesn't help any that I am a pack-a-day smoker. Im not going to get into the reasons for that, but it is a crutch for me. I know the damage it is doing to me and the effects it takes physically in all aspects, espcially in the gym.

    On the plus side, after having not gone to the gym steady for almost two years I started going again 3-6 times a week one month ago. I am already gaining back some size, 7 lbs, and I can lift 75% of what I used to. A month ago it was about 50% what it was before.
    Also, after having been on the pills for my problems for 6 months my liver function has come back to its normal levels :bigthumb:

    What I am wondering though, is aside from quitting smoking (which I know takes quite a draw on energy levels), what else can I do to help myself out?

    Testosterone builder supplements are one thing that comes to mind :dunno:

    Go to the doctor and get tested if you really think it is a problem.
    but like 20% of this forum think they have low test

    So let me get this right, you're on a shitload of pills, smoke a pack a day, have a bunch of diseases, and now you want to inject testosterone?

    It'd be more impressive if you had sex every night with women who weren't your wife.

    Does testosterone have anything to do with hair growth? Because I'm 19 and have way too much fucking hair. I'll give you some of my test if you want :dunno:

    Well testosterone breaks down into DHT, which causes baldness.

    you can buy supplements that contain the necessary building blocks of testosterone. theres no injection, they arent steroids, they are a pill that promotes testosterone production

    im going to prove you e-elitists wrong and get it tested
