Customer Question

I am very concerned about my lack of libido. Over the past 6 months my drive has gone from a 9 or 10 to pretty much zero. This is obviously causing problems with my partner.
This lack of drive prompted a trip to my GP and a range of tests. I was initially suspecting low testosterone (low sex drive, loss of motivation etc) however this seems not to be case.
My details/test results are as follows:
Age: 39 (male)
Low BMI and physically active
Studied nutrition - so a very balanced diet
TSH - 1.01 mU/L
Haematology - all within normal range
FSH - 6.7 IU/L
LH - 3.9 IU/L
Oestradiol - 131 pmol/L
Testo - 32.4 nmol/L
SHBG - 80 nmol/L
FreeTest - 409 pmol/L
- GGT - 112
- ALT - 38
- AST - 23
- Albumin - 41
Do you think the excess SHBG is responsible for my complete lack of drive?
Thanks for your assistance.

most likely the excessive sex binding globluin is not affecting your sex drive

severe anxiety symptoms will take away sex drive and erections.

what medications are you taking?
