What is up with my GFR level??

hello, im 29 and I just got tested for low T (low testosterone). the doc said i was REALLY low in testosterone my results came back with a 171 and i believe the range is between 270-1100. we also has several other things tested on the blood panel among them was my Triglycerides, which were 161mg/dl,(normal is less than 150)  HDL 40mg/dl (normal is above 40) and my LDL which was 106.(normal is under 100)  (i am only posting the areas that were out of normal ranges) The doc said because i was so low in the testosterone department, it affected all my leves (HDl, LDL, Tryglycerides) and he said he believes that when i come back to test my levels again in 3 months, i will show a big improvement in those departments, (does this sound right?) secondly i noticed somthing that woried me a bit. my GFR was a 69 (im only 29 years old). My question to you is could my low T have something to do with my decreased GFR? and will taking the TRT help to put my GFR value back up to where it should be? My creatinine serum level was 1.3 (normal is 0.5-1.2) my Biliribin total was 1.1 (normal is 0.0-1.0) my lipoprotein was 36.1 (normal is less than 30)and my Pregnenolone was 523 (normal is 38-350). All other resultes were in normal ranges.  Basically i am just woried about my GFR, will that return to normal after the TRT?

Stop eating corn!  Genetically Modified corn can lower your testosterone!  That includes:  Tostitos, Fritos, Cheetos, corn tortillas, corn chips, corn oil and anything else made from corn.  Should bring your levels back up.

Hmm, intresting, I already dont eat corn lol. I actually completey changed up my diet in the last few weeks, i am eating meat about once a week. basically, i just eat lots of fruits and vegies and mant different types of nuts. when i need some energy ill have a potato or somthing a little higher in CHO. I also gave up milk, i now drink almond milk or soy milk and i am  finding that i like them better haha ( I LOVED MILK). I dont buy hardly anything that is processed, the tow brands of almond milk and soy i get are trader joes or silk. Additionally i dont eat anything that i know is GMO (corn, non organic soy, ect). Ill have my levels tested again in a few weeks and hopefully ill see some great results!

I am glad that you are staying away from GMOs and those nasty foods that the government wants us to eat.  Good health to you!  Sometimes the Dr. will prescribe Testosterone hormones.  Has he tried that for you?  What about  steroids - temporarily?  You might need a better doctor - after all, they are just practicing.... LOL
