Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have very low testosterone; my level was 141 ng/dl. I am epileptic, and I work out six days a week, and I am in great shape. I have a great food regimen and drink plenty of water. I got a blood panel that I can send you.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I just read your query, and from what you have attached (attachments removed to protect the patient's identity), your testosterone level was 538 ng/dl. Besides, your epilepsy can put you at high risk if you try to take testosterone. Also, your fatigue and tiredness can often be due to dehydration since your blood urea nitrogen (BUN) is high, suggesting dehydration. Try to drink 8 to 10 glasses of water daily. Also, your low-density lipid (LDL) level is high, so you must cut down on seed oils and take olive oil instead for cooking.

Thanks.
