Low Testosterone Levels with TRT Could someone help explain this to me.
I have been on TRT for 6 weeks now. First set of lab work came back with a 202ng/dl serum Testosterone level and a Free Test Level of 4.1pg/ml. Also LH level was 0.6 IU/ml, FSH level 1.8 IU/ml, Prolactin 18.4 ng/ml, T4 Free 1.13 ng/ml, T3 Free 3.57 pg/ml, and finallt TSH 12.50 iu/ml. I know that the TSH and Testosterone levels were off, Endo prescribed me 200 mg Test Ethante every two weeks I felt Great the first 3 weeks and then the fatigue, low libido, and tiredness started over again. I went for my 6 week lab test on 8-4-09 and here was the results.Total Testosterone level was 226 ng/dl (range 241-827), Free Testosterone level was 4.1 pg/ml (range 8.7-25.1), T4 Free 0.73 ng/dl (range .78-2.19), TSH level 7.58 IU/mL (range 047-4.68 iu/ML), LH Level 0.0 iu/mL(range 1.31-10.5), FSH level 0.5 (range 1.55-9.74), Prolactin 11.8 ng/ml(range 4.1-18.4 (ng/ml), Estradol 22.4 pg/ml (range 5.37-65.9), T3 Free 3.95 pg/ml (range 2.77-5.2 pg/ml), Could someone please help me or explain to me why my "Test" levels didn't increase? I haven't have a CT or MRI to rule out and Pituritary problems. But to me it seems like my levels should have increased to Alot better level than this. Thanks Again and Any help or explanation would be Great Appreciated.
