    Hello Joe,

    I’ve recently done bloodwork and out of random I asked to to check my testosterone. I didn’t come into my checkup complaining about some symptoms but I wanted to check because I was curious to see what I had as it has some play into the gym.

    I am a 23 years old male and got a 45ng/dL Total testosterone that had the reference range minimum of 264ng/dL, and I got a free T with a minimum of 9.3pg/mL… I was then referred to a Urologist who did another round of bloodwork with a more extensive panel and also deemed that I have low testosterone. 233.4 Total and 12.5 free. Those two bloodworks were 2 weeks apart so it’s kind of weird how big of a fluctuation it is but nonetheless, low. Sucks for my age. Ever since I found out about my levels, I’ve nitpicked some symptoms that I read on the internet. I feel that fatigue, brainfog, anxiety, and lack of muscles are things that I feel are prevalent. I’ve been trying to achieve my gym goals Ever since I was 18, albeit did a bunch of messing around and would do things on and off, I felt like I had to work 10 times harder than the next person to achieve results.

    I aim for more than 7 hours of sleep (preferably want 8 but my schedule can get too much), I aim to eat a good amount of fat, I take supplements such as fish oil/vitamin D/multivitamin, and workout. All markers that should generally keep me in a normal range of Testosterone right?

    I listened to one of your answers about lowering expectations with people that get less sleep, what is your expectations for someone that has low T? I don’t want to be competitive or pro but I still want to get a body. How should one deal with this situation?


    Honestly what I think is you keep consulting with that urologist about measures you can take outside of physiological supplementation. He/she has been educated to give sound advise when it comes to care for hormones. Start there
