er..I am sorry but the truth is for most problems at your age, it is all in your mind. However that said, I suggest you take at least 2 more testosterone readings 1 week apart. A single reading cant tell you anything. I would also suggest checking free testosterone & prolactin.

Meanwhile please change to a healthy lifestyle. At your age your body will start responding within a couple of weeks.

Good luck

Hi Ryan, Do you have hair not growing as well as it did, do you think you have lost any muscle bulk as well.
Ijust had a look at your history, and you have had a liver problem, when you had your tests done was there any mention of you DHEA being low, this is a hormone, and the gland that it come from sits on your liver, now if we connect the two then your having a hormonal drop of your DHEA.
Now you either have the choice of going back for tests and slowly going backwards or you can go out and get yourself some DHEA from over the counter, as we all can, get some 25mg DHEA just take 2 a day, the first one just as you get up, and the other one just after your last meal, give it 2 weeks and see how your doing, but one thing please read up about DHEA before you take them, it can have the odd funny side effect with the odd person, but I have been on it for 2 years now, my own choice and I'm OK, I had most of the same symptons as you, but your 23 and I'm 65, but do fill great and got my sex life back, I take this along with other herbs.
Please come back if you want any more info or you can email me through my name.
Good Luck

Hi thanks for that informative reply. Id say my liver problem and sexual dysfunction along with other symptoms appeared at the same time. And all withing a period of a few days. Prior to these problems I was under alot of stress at work also i was consuming alot of energy drinks as well as caffine pills to help me work better under stress. I started having bowel problems. Brain fog. Confusion and delirium. Aswell as the bowel urinating became a problem. My urine was often cloudy especially after ejeculation. Not sure it its related though. Ive looked into dhea and i will certianly give it a try.

Nohard. I think you onto something there. I've looked into dhea and sure enough every single symptom of dhea deficiency directly relates to me.

Depression
Loss of libido
Memory problems
Joint pain
Extreme fatigue
Weakened immune system
Increased sensitivity to noise
Loss of muscle and bone mass
Dry eyes, skin and hair
Hair loss
Anxiety
Erectile dysfunction

I have all these symptoms. Whats more si the cause of dhea deficency. A diet lacking in nutrition, following low-calorie or crash diets, stress and emotional disturbances such as depression are some of the factors that can lower your DHEA levels. Right when my symptoms struck. I was under heavy stress at work, I was consuming vast amount of caffeine everyday which caused insomnia. I was also living on junk food and takeaways daily. and gained alot of weight quickly. Top top it off I lost my job and was also depressed. I seem to fall into every category and cause. I researched everyday my symptoms and never came across this. I'm feeling very excited. I've booked an appointment with my GP and I'm going to ask for a DHEA test before i start taking supplements. Thanks allot for your input. It may be the best advice I've heard in along time.

I have central hypothyroidism.  Low testosterone.

In my travels is seems to me that, pretty much any endocrine disorder can cause the symptoms you describe.

Low testosterone.
Adrenal problems.
Thyroid Problems.
DHEA
Rarely estrogen producing tumors.
Liver disease I think can be an issue.
And stress and depression.

One problem in the US is 20-40% of adults suffer from metabolic syndrome. That's playing havoc with endocrinologists right now. Not to mention you can have both.

Doesn't help that most doctors have been taught in med school that male sexual health is psychiatric problem by definition.

Hi Ryan, I do hope your now off junk and fast foods, these are both sex killers with high salt and sugars, and if you were taken lots of sugar in coffee, again sex killer, sugar boosts our testosterone but if we go over the top it has the opposite effect and goes the other way.
But I hope now you have got your weight down, again a sex killer, if you want to clean your blood up take some cayenne, it will get the plaque out of it, you can add in some garlic, both helps to get your erections back, get on some good green tea, but not bags, get a 2 pint tea pot, take this with honey and lemo, both good for you blood, doing all this will help with your erections.
Good Luck

Yes im off all the junk. My symptoms have improved and im still a good weight for my height. Ive had thyroid, cortisol tests that also came came normal. Like i was saying these problems all started during a tough time in my life. Problem is that was over a year ago and im  and my mood and diet has improved but still i have many problems. I really belive that a combination of. Stress, high amounts of caffine, little sleep, poor diet and dperession has caused a sudden changed in my body. Even though ive eliminated the causes the aymptoms a still lingering though not as bad.

Hi Ryan I will send you some emails, these are all on the stuff I take, so there all natural, they have got me back in the game, give them a good read before you try, and its far cheaper than drugs for sex, if your still having a weight problem try the cabbage diet, I do this sometimes its a great way of cleaning the body out, its like a detox, and you only have to get your head round it for 7 days, but I do the first day again on the end, if you intrested come back to as I do some intresting changes for the week.
Good Luck
