TSH level 5.47 & total testosterone 245. LH is 2 & FSH is 1. Secondary hypogonadism & hypothyroidism. im 31 my dr suggested synthroid, (thyroxine) TRT. yes or no?

Yes: I would recommend Armour or Nature's Thyroid over Synthyroid. Synthyroid is a synthetic the others are natural. Definitely would recommend testosterone using a bio-identical. Pellet therapy preferably because will last for 4-6 months and give superior levels. Can get more info at BioTe.com and find a Dr. in your area that can help and is well trained. ...Read more

I have many symptoms /problems associated with menopause or thyroid these are bloods tests done, FSH 32.1, LH level 49.2, T4 15.1, TSH 1,56,?

See gynecologist: Thyroid levels are within normal ranges. At menopause, FSH levels tend to go up to ~70 or more, but they fluctuate and normal values at one point in time won't give you your answers. You need to see your gynecologist for an evaluation. Any treatment for you will depend on his/her overall assessment, rather than a test taken at one point in time ...Read more

Here are some ..: The causes for low-T are many, can be primary or secondary. Over the last decade, more awareness in drug-induced HPG axis dysfunction has emerged leading to low-T. Now, it is increasingly known all drugs exerting their effects on CNS will in time affect HPG axis, notably the opiate-related drugs.
