Help with test blood results, Testosterone at 135
 
Wondering if anyone could give me some direction now that I have some blood work results in front of me. I am a 31 year old male, 197lb, 6' tall and had blood work done as a result of feeling very tired all the time along with moderate depression, apathetic, and irritable. I feel like I'm 80 years old most days. Sex drive is OK I guess. Curious what further tests I should request as well as anyone who has had good results with any kind of natural testosterone therapy. To simplify all those numbers they were all within the normal range with the exception of testosterone and the cholesterol numbers. I was on anti-depressants for 10 years or so, most recently Celexa and Wellburtrin. Any insight would be appreciated.
* Any suggestions for a endocrine doctor in Charlotte NC?

Hello,
I was diagnosed with low test. levels as well about 6 months ago, i was at 82. very low according to the numbers, i should be around 400-800. I was 37 then and i began test cypionate injections. well at first they gave me a script for androgel which was a topical gel, very expensive, $500 a script, which was for 60 days worth. that was way to rich for my pocket, so i contacted the dr. and he changed it to the injections, 200mg 1cc shot every 2 weeks. I feel way better, i had sleep apnia, low test and hypothyroidism, triple threat. i began taking some meds from the dr. who did my sleep disorder test, i can;t remamber the name of it but it is designed for people on shift work, gives you a boost of energy. but it is addictive and not a soution. I would ask for test shots, they are intramuscular in the thigh or upper hip/buttox area. i really helped me, not just w/fatigue but libido as well. i was able to get an errection prir to injections but it would take longer then usual and not as erect as it used to be. but all that is changed now. good luck with this issue, i feel that you will change your fatigue and libido.

Good luck, wish you the best.
