Has anyone been able to turn the low T train around? Yep, another Testosterone question.

So I had some blood tests a few days ago, not bad except for my testosterone being at 12nmol/L, (Which converts to around 350 I believe). That's pretty bad, considering I am a 32 y/o male, decent athletic build and around 10% BF. So I guess I don't fit the mould for low testosterone. I lift 3 times a week, (yep I squat and deadlift) and I do most things that I have found over the interwebs to fix the situation, and it doen't seem to be working.

I wanted the blood test because my libido dropped considerably over the last 4 months or so. The only thing I can think of was a period of about 3 months I had very poor sleep (Around 5 hours a night at best) which may have kicked up my cortisol. But I have been getting about 7-9 hours for the last month, so I thought my testosterone levels would have risen back by now.

Has anyone been in the same boat that my be able to spread some wisdom?

Nope, I work in an office, so it's not really possible, unless I pull a Costanza and sneak under my desk. My current plan is to keep the sleep nailed, continue lifting heavy and play around with Tim Ferriss' T protocol. As for the libido, I am slowly going to ramp up carbs through sweet potato and see what happens. It is winter right now, so this could be a case of the winter blues getting me down and ruining my mood.

I'm not sure if my testosterone level is reduced, but I find that my libido drops massively if I don't get enough sleep for more than a few days. Any chance you could squeeze in afternoon naps?
