Hey everyone! A few weeks ago in April I saw my endocrinologist for my 6 month check up. He was very happy with my numbers and didn't want to initially run a blood test until July. When I had asked him about having a testosterone screen he ended up filling out the full blood test and mailed it to me. I took that the Saturday before last and just got the call from the nurse today. Testosterone looked like it was in the normal range, sugars looked good but my liver was "slightly elevated."
I haven't spoken to the doctor yet but I'm having him call me tomorrow or Wednesday so I can get some more feedback. What could that mean? A fatty liver? High triglycerides? The only instruction I received was to continue meds and try to take some weight off, which I've been doing. I'm down to about 274 now, it's slowly coming off but due to my job I haven't really been able to get to the gym on a regular basis. When we move offices in July I'll have free access to the buildings gym so cardio 5-6 times a week will be more of an option.
The whole concern I had this time around was due to ED issues I've been experiencing the past year or so. I was only diagnosed last August, and may have been pre-diabetic for a short time before. Doctor thinks that no permanent neuropathy or anything have occurred. I'm planning on seeing my father's urologist to get some more feedback.
