I got the most expensive blood test you can do from WellnessFX which pretty much tested a whole array of things.
I am 23 years old. I have had whacky sex drive, sometimes to where I'm super horny and other times to where I'm not interested in sex at all.
Anyways, these were my results:
Total Testosterone: 740 (looks good)
Free Testosterone: 98.9 (on the lower end of the spectrum of 46-224)
DHEA: 200 (In the high risk category, supposed to be 211-493)
Sex Hormone Binding Globulin: 49 (high on the spectrum of 10-51 - this hormone binds to sex hormones and renders them inactive)
Insulin-Like Growth Factor I: 257 (Right in the good range of 117-330)
Estradiol: 32 (high range on normal of 12-39, so high estrogen!)
Only other thing is my total cholesterol and bad cholesterol is high, although my ratio of good to bad cholesterol is perfect. I also have slightly low magnesium in my cells (I supplement with magnesium every night- helps me sleep).
Any ideas on this? Is this normal, or should my free testosterone be higher?
How would I decrease the Sex Hormone Binding Globulin?
