I went to see my enocrinologist and my testosterone level is very low
For the past several years, I’ve been feeling tired, not concentrating, and low libido. So yesterday I went to see an endocrinologist and the visit alone was $250, the doctor drew blood from me for a testosterone check and he told me that he will speak to me tomorrow morning (which is today). So this morning before I went to work, I purchased a bottle of of Python which has Tribulus Terristris (500mg) from this store: http://www.vitaminshoppe.com/browse/sku_detail.jhtml;$sessionid$NTWF2KFG4LO2QCQUAOWSFE QKCQB1AGXK?SkuID=11&BreadCrumbType=SearchResult
I took the recommended dose which is 2 tablets this morning.
At work, the doctors office called me and the doctor told me that my level is 238 (very low), the normal range for my age is 280-800. I’m very concerned about this. The doctor told me, “we have get more blood tests from you to find out why it’s so low. Something could be wrong with your pituary gland, hormonone imbalance, etc.” The test which is called Prolactin Estradiol Testosterone Lh, Fh would cost me $550.00, and I have no insurance to cover it, I told the doctor “I’ll think about”.
I happened to work in a hospital and went to the chemistry department. I regret not having my testosterone checked in the chemistry lab. Anyway, I spoke to a supervisor in the lab today and explained to him the whole ordeal and he said that one of his lab techs can do the Prolactin Estradiol Testosterone Lh, Fh test on me for free. I was surprised, I had no idea I was going to get tested again today. If I had known I wouldn’t have taken the Python product which contains Tribulus Terristris extract (500mg). Would that defeat the whole purpose of the new test? I’m going to get the results back tomorrow morning will it show a much higher testosterone level due to the tribulus?
