My Dr checked my testosterone last week and the results came back that it was at 205 when it should be in the 700 range which he said is the reason
for the severe lack of energy. He also did a complete CDC, Liver, and Kidney function as well as check my blood sugar with the fasting test and all
came back excellent with the exception of my PSA which was 7.5, it should be around 2 for a 40 year old man. I will have to start testosterone therapy
this week and he said it will improve but take a couple of months. So combined with my low testosterone and my extremely elevated PSA the Dr did more
tests including a biopsy.
I'm so sorry to hear about this but at least you caught it in time.
As far as the testosterone goes, my husband too found out his was low -284- and he had tons of blood-work done and was given the okay for
[His PSA total was good]
So every 2 weeks I give him a shot in the hip.
[He still has to have his blood checked every 3 mos. It hasn't quite been 3 mos. yet so curious as to what it is now]
But he can tell a difference as far as him not being as tired and having more energy.
The main thing that the dr. was concerned about was keeping an eye on any mood changes or physical changes.
As far as you & your ex-wife, were you guys living near an area heavy with industrial plants or factories putting off a lot of pollution? Might can
explain the coincidence possibly.
Wish you the best and take care~
P.S. All men need their PSA checked as well as testosterone........Low-T can cause a guy to feel like hell.
We were told the number should run in the range of 600-800 depending on age.
And the blood tests should be done before 9 A.M. due to the fact that that is when testosterone is at it's peak.
My husband usually goes around 8-8:30 A.M. to have the blood drawn.
