    Should I see a specialist?

    All my hormones seem to be very low.

    Lh is less than 2 as is my Fsh and my testosterone is on 14, granted this is an approvement from when I was first diagnosed. But there all within range but at the very bottom of each range.

    I dont know what to do

    Hi Ric,

    Sorry to hear about you as I know how it feels. I am still waiting for my test results since I visited my Endo two and half weeks ago.

    Your testosterone is not too low...Is it total testosterone as they dont do Free here anyway. I think the range is between 9 - 18 or something? Correct me if I am wrong. Your LH is quite low.....I would guess it is secondary and has to do with your hormones rather than physical issues.

    If you are feeling alright then may be you heading towards the right direction as hormones being low may need some time to level up.

    Also did you try taking some 7-Keta DHEa as I have noticed a lot of improvements on that and have reduced my cortisol from all the way up from 20 to 5 now.

    Cannot say if it helps in anyway in terms of the results unless I get mine and post them.

    On the other side, there is never a harm to see a specialist if your doctor is willing to listen to you and refer to an Endo.

    Just occured to me Ric, high cortils can drive other hormones low. Symptoms of high are similar in some ways to low making it difficult to work out which you have. High still stops hormones getting into cells.

    Did you do a saliva test yet?

    I don't know anything about men and their hormones but I do know the facts above are true as I once joined a forum of people with addisons/cushings/ all sorts and I was told I had symptoms of a kind of cushings that goes from low to high to low cortils, scared the poop outta me but they did seem to be well informed.
    I am not sure who is right but you can research and read on here
