A little history:
I'm 45yrsold male, I have very low libido for approximatly the last 15 yrs, lethargic, depressed, lack of motivation feel bad . I've been on prozack then zooloft and then paxil 5 yrs ago. did'nt like how I felt on them,so I been just dealing with it but my wife is not happy.
I ride my bicycle every day m,w,f,1 hr. easy ,T,th 2hrs+ hard ,sat(4.3hrs.),&sun;(2.3hrs) very intense group rides.
been doing this for at least 12yrs.
Looks like I don't need TRT,would low Thyroid cause this?
I've heard if PROLACTIN was not towards the low end that can cause loss of libido?
How do I get my RBC up ? , My Dr. isn't cocerned , but I am.
I feel weak on the bike
I tried to get my DR. to prescribe ARMOUR but he said no,He put me on LEVOXYL.
Thanks for any replies

what you describe is classic hypothyroidism. It is too bad that your doc would not go with amour. I would guess that you will start feeling much better very soon.

take a little time and research it on the internet, if your doc says it does not work, ask him why it is an fda approved drug and listed in the PDA! Next, find another doc who is not mired in the past.

I tried to show him some research,he wouldn't look at it.
I asked him why not try something that gives me T1,2,3,4 intead of just levoxyl. he said I don't need them and levoxyl is the best 🙁
In my lifetime I havn't met a doc who will work with me .
The ones that sound good I can't aford.
