Off topic (kind of) / sorry folks!
Hey Swim,
Sorry to call you like this but I think you may be the only one who can help me right now. I finally got an appointment w/ the Endocrinologist I've been waiting to see. I had been calling a couple times a week asking about cancellations and I think they got tired of me so they gave me one. I was scheduled for October!
Anyway, I was hoping you would refresh my memory on all the testosterone / thyroid / hormoanal questions I should ask him about. I remember you telling me about a conection between them and hoping you could help me?? I'm vaigly remembering words like estrogen, calcium, DHT, D-3, parathyroid but I can't remember what they were or what if any relationship they have. I'm sure I missed some. If you have a spare minute, could you help an old friend out? My apt. is on Thursday 6/28. I don't know if you remember me telling you, I don't have a thyroid anymore and have still been taking the same dose of synthroid but haven't seen an Endo for about 4 years. Two weeks ago my testosterone was at 305 but my Uro refuses to test any of that other stuff. I asked him about the things you said back in December when I 1st went to see him, but was so glad to get the T replacement, I didn't push him on the rest. I'm hoping I can ask this new Doc this week.
Thanks!!!
Your friend,

I'll get with you tomorrow night when I have more time to write Pete. I'm out of town on business tomorrow. You have no thyroid so you're focused on treating hypothyroid no matter what. What you want to know is what else may be keeping your T level so low and you feeling unwell. For men on T its usually hypothyroid, pituitary. adrenal fatigue or ESTRADIOL or route of delivery problems. We'll get you headed in the right direction but on a private line please!!!! I'll e-mail you privately.

Pituitary axis. LH, SHBG, cortisol and estradiol were the things I had mentioned. Until I have time, there are 2 things you can do to educate y ourself.....

Google : 1. Stop the Thyroid Maddness
2. All Things Male...this one especially
