Hi. I've ordered a test which checks for
DHEAs FSH LH SHBG Testosterone Free Androgen Index
Would this test show up a hormones problem?
What types of hormone problems occur in young adults men? What are the conditions which would cause it? As I discussed with you, I had testosterone test before but it was 12 nmol. The bottom level of normal. I feel this is very low for someone my age, but seems differing oppinions on this. So, Im hoping this blood test will reveal more details if it's too low. I do have a variety of symptoms which come with low testosterone too - but it could be depression so hard to know at the moment.
OK, I took the test at 3pm (the time I woke up). I get results soon. I will let you know the results.
Thanks. If my results come back OK, what do you think my symptoms are a result of? I've had thyroid checked - it seemed ok.
OK thanks, ***** ***** with results once they arrive.
Hi, here is the blood test results:http://oi62.tinypic.com/9lh3ll.jpg
Yes, are my results OK for a 26 year old? And what about the DHEA?
OK, good. I notice DHEA higer levels are responisble for acne. Could that be why I get acne outbreaks? And, will that one lower over time - making acne go?Also, my testosterone is higher than before, but still not massivley high, I read that after 30 it will go lower every year, which makes me worry as it would fall low fast?
Thanks. If the DHEA will drop with age then my acne could go?
And testosterone can go up and down daily? fluctuate? So mine could be quite high in the morning (the time I didnt take it)? And also my testosterone would be much higer with less stress and more exercise? Please advise with this.
Thanks. I also consume 40 units of alcohol per week, can this lower testosterone?
How long would a break need to be to raise alcohol levels etc? Thinking of taking a break a few weeks before Christmas as usually drink more over Christmas.
