came in at 353. Doc said that is a normal figure. My reading suggests that 300-1000 is normal so I guess I am on the low end of normal.
still waiting for my homosistien levels then I'll have my full blood workup complete.

40 yo. But I don't feel 40 😉
PSA level came in at 0.06 so that is good news.......Still waiting for homosistien.
Can diet effect test levels short term? (wishful thinking I know). But my test was in the morning after fasting for 14 hours. I am going to talk to a Doc about testing SHGB (per quijr, thanks), FSH & LH, % free test etc. Key here I think is I need to talk to a Dr that knows what the hell they are talkin about in regards to this.

well, some I feel really strange about this, most would be estatic but........I talked to my normal Dr, homosistien looks great. I had an honest talk with him about my test levels. He agreed, normal but low. I actually had them tested due to being lathargic all the time ( I was hoping the results would not be low test). Anyway, he wants to start me on HRT. Kind of a sobering thought really. we're going to see how I feel after a few months but man, I'm really having a hard time accepting this. Its like I told my wife, I am used to being in perfect health and this just does not fit into my mind very well. One thing I am very happy about is that he is open minded enough to even consider this as an option and he is willing to treat the problem, I know many Dr's out there are very hesitant given the bad press aas has been getting the last few years.

Have you been losing muscle mass, strength and libido lately? Give us more details about your coming treatment and about yourself. Have you ever use AAS?

You don't feel healthy? Are you feeling depressed? If so, for how long?

Actually my strength is coming along well. I have been recovering from a motorcycle crash last year so I was out for a while. Libido is very high (way above normal according to my wife, but normal for me). I recently have gained about 8 pounds of BW and at least 5 I would say is lean muscle. AAS use? yes but not for about 3 years now. My last cycle PCT was good but not great but I suspect in the last 3 years even if I did no PCT my body would have upregulated back to normal (not sure on that though). Treatment as it stand now will be test not sure o the dose yet. Thoughts??
