4575 Low test
The other day a friend suggested I had a testosterone deficiency due to how "soft" I am physically. I looked it up online and it struck a chord. I'm overweight, with fairly pronounced breasts and love handles. Even when I was underweight, my breasts and love handles were always disproportionately large. I've also been comparing myself with other fat men, and my breasts are perkier and more female looking than typical man boobs. So I'm going to go to my doctor and ask for a testosterone test.

Have any of you lot had any success with getting treatment for low testosterone?

If you do have low testosterone, it's a result of eating processed food and never exercising and not because you're an evolutionary error with a genetic condition. Your mate is a moron; you might be just as stupid.

I think I need a pictorial comparison between standard man boobs and perky low testosterone man boobs.

Oh bog off you stupid fucking hippie. There are tons of things that can kick of an imbalance in your HTPA and throw your test out of whack, not to mention that some men are simply born with higher levels of testosterone production than others.

"Processed food", you couldn't make it up.

The markers used by NHS GPs are based on a range established from samples take from "healthy men" of all ages from late teenage through to old lads in their eighties. As long as you're at least slightly above the mean for a typical coffin dodger (I think the limit is somewhere in the high 200s) then the NHS will not treat you for low test. As a twenty-five year old lad your test should probably be in the 800-900 range.

While I'm here get your Thyroid checked and your SHBG, Free test, FSH, and E2 levels done while you're at it. Without those markers a simple test for testosterone won't tell anyone very much at all.

Regardless, if you don't fall into the NHS' one foot in the grave low test category the only way you'll be getting your test back up to natural levels is by going private, in one way or another.

Will you please put in the effort to type out testosterone properly, saying "test" over and over like it's some kind of hip lingo is just making you look like a cunt.

Just to annoy you further, in all forthcoming posts in this thread I will be using standardised medical shorthand for all hormones - E1, E2, T, T3, T4, SHBG, LH etc.

That way you'll feel like even more of a left out dolt than you already do / actually are.

That is the most appropriate reaction, I think.
Otherwise, at least some parts of the so-called manosphere seem to be overly obsessed with TRT. I don't know if it's just another fad or something actually real.

My instinct on hearing someone wants to take a testosterone test is to think they have been influenced by that bullshit, but OP seems to have semi-compelling reasons to get it checked.

I don't know about being influenced by Red Pill shite, but the symptoms of low T are about as broad and vague as those for gluten intolerance, which is why it's understandably easy for people to believe they've got it.

Isn't testosterone basically poison? It lowers life expectancy and makes your hair fall out. You might be better off without it.

All in balance with your other hormones. Women have much lower testosterone, but they have other womanly hormones doing womanly things instead. You do supposedly live longer without testosterone but it has plenty of adverse effects on an otherwise healthy male not to have it.

Basically, there's "low testosterone" like in slim effeminate dudes like me- I might not be a muscular 'ard lad but I'm sure to have a full head of hair well into my 60s. And then there's low testosterone like in OP's case where it pretty much deforms you, he should have a much higher amount than he has so he's starting to look like a 1700s opera boy.

You're thinking of DHT, one of the byproducts of testosterone. Men who take an interest in their hormones generally try to inhibit production of DHT to stop hair loss among other things.
