Testosterone blood test

Common Questions and Answers about Testosterone blood test


Avatar n tn Symptoms are fatigue, frequent urination, fatigue, sleeplessness, mentally slow, and decreased to zero libido. My blood tests are available below. Obviously, testosterone at 71 ng/dL is a major concern along with LH at 1.1. Can anyone interpret these for me and rule out hypothyroid vs. overtraining. I have since stopped training and plan on taking 2 weeks to rest and recovery intensely. Any comments are appreciated. Thank you- Prolactin – 8.1 NG/ML TT4 – UG/DL FT4 - 79 ng/dL TSH – 0.
Avatar m tn Your testosterone is apparently in the normal range. How do you know that this is low for your age? Also, losing weight only benefits can bring to you if you have it in excess. So, you mean here that you have 100 pounds more than normal for your age and height? That sounds to be a lot, especially combined with a sedentary job. Regardless of testosterone considerations, losing weight is a no-brainer in your case.
Avatar m tn I am following your advice thank you, but I really want to know if I can naturally bring my testosterone levels to where they should be for a person my age. Before I took the blood test I had lots of health anxiety as I thought I had cancer. I was not sleeping or eating enough and I was under lots of emotional stress anyway I lost over 20 pounds in about three weeks before the blood was drawn. Would that drastically effect the levels of testosterone?
Avatar f tn Yes, there are two tests. Total Testosterone will give a measure of both attached and free testosterone. And Free Testosterone is more specific and only measures free testosterone. Total T is the typical first test to get for diagnostic purposes. It's probably always the first test in hypogonadism. And normal range is usually (most labs) 300 to 800. About 1 to 2% (in most men) is free testosterone. The rest is attached. Free testosterone floats around and is biologically active.
Avatar n tn Thanks. Since my recent blood test came in at 237, that might explain why I'm feeling weak and run down. I'm talking to my doctor on Wednesday.
Avatar n tn Many of my old blood test from the past show low rates of MCV in my blood. These are my recent thyroid results done by my therapist. T3 Uptake 34.3 Thyroxine (T4) 5.1 FTI 4.4 TSH 1.68 Free T4 0.61 She is concerned about the FTI. I also have had tests in the past where over the years my MCV is elevated. Hormone Test LH 21.5 FSH 24.9 Progesterone 0.
Avatar m tn My endo requested that I have a morning blood draw today to measure testosterone levels again. My last draw (a week ago) gave a reading of 225 (reference range is: 240 - 830 ng/dl) That is quite low I'm told and perhaps points to another sign of hypothyroidism. This morning's test was listed as an (SHBG) Sex Hormone Binding Globulin test. (I have no idea what this is.) My results were: testosterone: 306 ng/dL (reference range unknown) ALBUMIN 4.
Avatar n tn med1428 did a good job of describing typical symptoms. It can be tested with a simple blood test. If you're an adult the result should be over 200.
Avatar m tn I just wanted to know what all these blood results mean as he just said that the Testosterone was high but didn't say anything about anything else?? Do they all look okay? Does PCOS ever go away or will I have it forever? Also how difficult is it going to be for me to get pregnant when I want to have children? Thanks Shell. P.S I am 21 y/o!
3249922 tn?1347023649 I'm just wondering - are you assuming that you have low testosterone or was that a diagnosis from a test? I wouldn't be so quick to make assumptions nor would I be quick to self-treat with supplements - especially if you have high blood pressure and could possibly be on other medications. With any treatment it's usually a balance of weighing the benefits against the consequences - and if it's worth it is up to you.
Avatar m tn The normal levels of testosterone are 10-45 nmol/L and 290-1300ng/dL.If your blood test has been done specifically only for testosterone levels then there is littlle possibility that they have been entered wrong.But if normal Range blood test has been done then,check the expression of other quantities either in US or SI units ie similar to testosterone or vice versa.Please check this out with other quantities like Albumin,Bilirubin.
Avatar m tn I have noticed an improvement if feeling of wellbeing, but still have some symptoms of low testosterone. A few months ago I took a blood test because I developed gynecomastia and was having some erectile dysfunction here are the results: Dhea(NL) 458ng/DL Ref range142-1410 Testosterone, total (DSL) 346Ng/DL Ref range 190-1037 Estradiol (DSL) 32 PG/ML None given Cortisol 14.
Avatar m tn I have recently received my blood test results from the doctor...She told me to cut down on fats in my diet... The outside of range, results are; Lymphocytes 48 Glucose 110 Cholesterol 228 Triglyceride 214 Hdl cholesterol 33 non hdl 195 Ldl Calc 152 VLDL Chol 43 Chol HDL Ratio 6.
Avatar m tn When I was having my Testosterone tested (108 ng/dL by the way) my blood test reveled a high red blood cell count, 5.90. Just a little high since normal is 4.10 to 5.65. Could this be caused by untreated sleep apnea? I didn't notice the high RBC count so I didn't ask my doctor about it. And next visit I plan to mention my sleep apnea problem. It only happens when I sleep on my back, so I try to sleep on my side, but I have severe pain, so I toss all night long.
