i, Cloudy -I
'm sort of coming into this in the middle and don't know the whole story with your health concerns, but my doctor suspected I had low testosterone levels as well, so I was tested. It turns out my testosterone was normal and my Vitamin D levels were low - just like you. However
- my LH and FSH levels were significantly elevated above normal - effectively blocking the testosterone anyways. So you might want to ask your doctor - if he has not already done so - to test your LH and FSH levels, too (Luteinizing Hormone
and Follicle Stimulating Hormone
hose hormones, by the way, while still found in males, are generally only active
in females (I guess it's like nipples - guys have them but don't have any physiologic use for them).I
nterestingly, my partner was really curious why, if my follicle stimulating hormone levels were so high, I'm not hairy at all. I had to explain to him that the "follicles" the hormone stimulates are ovarian follicles, not hair follicles.
