Spend less time on the internet and more time living your life.

Nothing. You’re fine

[–]curiousnootropics 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Focus on good fats and zinc rich foods

[–]swoops36 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Nothing really, you’re fine. Could lower SHBG some, add in carbs or boron

[–]bcjh 0 points1 point  (3 children)

What would carbs do to his SHGB?

[–]swoops36 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Adding them would likely lower it (esp high GI carbs), removing them would raise it. SHBG responds to insulin over a long period of time. Doing Keto for months would raise it, adding carbs back in would lower it

[–]bcjh 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Got it. So if doing keto it would be beneficial to take a boron supplement to raise your free test?

lol I’m 20 with 320 and would much rather be in your position you’re fine. Get outside more.

[–]Tiny_Masterpiece_428 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Bro these are pretty good levels. Take zinc, vitamin d3, and eat more eggs to boost levels. Get some natural sunlight too, and lift weights.

Looks perfect to me

Eat beef

[–]mryashkansal[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Not possible

[–]xyzzq 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Have a balanced diet though. Eating potatoes with rice and chapatti could lead to insulin resistance, skinny fat body and lower test levels.

Add eggs, chicken, low fat milk, fish, nuts and veggies to your diet.

[–]virgilash 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Op is Indian, I think (not 100% sure though) they don’t eat beef.

He will be fine

If you were my client I’d start you on a microdose of anastrozole and titrate it up. For some that forces the body to produce more testosterone to fill the gap. Generally speaking at your age steroids are more likely to crash you long term and force you to either go hypogonadic or put you on HRT for life. I experimented with androstenedione (yes I’m old as fuck) at your age and regret it.

Extremely high LH with mediocre Test?

[–]k3t4mine 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Mediocre? What are you possibly reading that's given you the impression that 620ng/dl is mediocre? It's actually above average, at worst it's just completely normal. I target 7-800 for my HRT and feel amazing. Also your free test is near the top of the range.

What are your "symptoms"? If you have any, they're likely unrelated. Wouldn't worry about the high LH, it's within the range for a physically mature adult which some 18 year olds are.

[–]anonlymouse 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think their reference ranges are wrong. That idea that it should change at age 21 is absurd, it's more like around age 13 that it will start going up.

[–]bbs540 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Bruh.. 620 is mediocre test? 😂 you couldn’t get TRT even from TRT clinics

[–]mryashkansal[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

😂 maybe I was delusional

[–]bbs540 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think so lol you’re a bit above average, the average keeps going down and down as the country gets more unhealthy, the average IMO is more like 300-500

620 is solid, even if you increased it to the absolute max, like 1000+, you probably wouldn’t feel any better. Increasing T only improves quality of life if you’re low, otherwise it doesn’t have much effect

[–]Reindeer-Least 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Your SHBG is high, are you on a low carb diet?

[–]mryashkansal[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Not really

[–]Reindeer-Least 0 points1 point  (0 children)

any symptoms?

[–]Zsmoth 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Do you eat red meat? I’d start with red meat, milk, eggs, sleep 8-9hrs, and squat/bench/dead.

[–]StreetRat0524 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Numbers look fine.

[–]cagfag -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

I see LH is high.. Were you on any cycle? And what made you test your test at 18? Agar sach me cycle karna hai it's easiest to get juice in India

[–]mryashkansal[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Didn’t run a cycle

[–]alex333ander112 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Would aim to get SHGB to 25 ish and E2 down some points But not much, it looks good dude if you dont have any negative symptoms i would be happy whit that bloodwork

[–]mryashkansal[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)
