Who out there gets blood taken and checks where he/she is with hormones etc.. I spent a great deal of time researching hormone levels and optimal readings.. Long story short at the end of it all you really find out how little these so called specialists know (mainly referring to Endo's) don't want to offend anyone if they are an endocrinologist but the ones I dealt with (5+) were as good as a water proof teabag. Anyway one thing that gets overlooked at in males is hormone deficiency in my opinion in Australia and a lot over the world except the USA which is ahead in this. Lets make one thing clear being in normal range does not mean optimal. For example testosterone readings in males range from 6-30 nmol/l. If you are 80 or 17 and have the same reading of 8, one can clearly see the obvious they are both in range but one is not optimal at all. But most doctors see you in range and that is it, even if you poses symptoms that should be looked at. So I am wondering who in here has had these tests done and monitors them for the males out there? Cortisol TSH Ft3 Ft4 Anti TPO (if thyroid issue) Anti TG (if thyroid issue) Testosterone Free Testosterone LH FSH Estradiol Vitamin D B12 Iron C-reactive protein (this is the dangerous one if present over a long period of time) Hematocrit Cholesterol (Not the big killer made out to be, pharmaceutical companies absolutely killing the profits with drugs for this scam) If this topic gathers interest will share some thoughts and findings with you as we go along.
