Low T

Hello, I am a 45 year old male.  I weigh 245 and 5.8 in height.  My ALT was recently 41.  I was told because of bad eating habits.  My testosorine level was low 241.  I do take effexor xr daily.  Could this be the cause of my low T?  I have a dr. appointment next month.  Is 241 something I should worry about?  I function well when it comes to physical activity with wife.  The only problem I may feel is that I am tired most of the time.

   I would think that for your height you have an obese body with 245lbs weight. In the absence of any medical symptoms, you could improve your T level if you can reduce your weight by moderate exercise and good eating habits. You should also be watchful about your blood glucose levels in addition to your liver health.
