I take it most people here have high testosterone, yet low DHT right?
I got my hormones measured and my total T came in at 895ng/dl yet my DHT was only 45ng/dl.
45ng/dl is in the “healthy” range, but so is 280ng/dl of T, theoretically. These ranges are so high because people of different ethnicities and ages require different amounts of hormones. One person could average 400ng/dl and live a perfectly healthy life, while another could feel all the symptoms of low testosterone at that same level.
Which is why it’s bullshit when doctors say "Your hormones are in the “healthy” range. No shit. The “healthy” range also includes elderly, doesn’t it bucko? As an 18 year old going nearly ending puberty 45dht + 895t is incredibly unhealthy and I feel it. I get angry very easily. And when I hit the gym, I’m incredibly strong and can handle quite heavy weights yet make no muscle gain.
High T and Low DHT is depressing and no way to live. Honestly 90% of PFS symptoms could be explained by unbalanced hormones and low DHT. It’s too bad there’s no reliable way to get them back on track. Testosterone also gets converted to estrogen so my estrogen is high as well. It’s like living life as a male without any of the benefits of being male. The libido, the muscle mass, the masculinization. You’re basically a very, very angry female. What a joke this drug is.
