New to this need advice

From: Krogers - 1 year 10 weeks ago

I have been having issues and have recently found out my DHEA levels are right by 600 and I know that is way to high and I am getting worried because my new doctor does not seem to be concerned .. I also called my old doctor and he did not seemed to be concerned but he was the one that also gave me biote pelleting saying that I had low testosterone when new doctor said I did not. I am thinking that my body is having a reaction to the extra testosterone but it has been awhile now and old doctor assured me that the pelleting is out of my system. I have completely cut out sugar and carbs and new doc has put me on a 900 calorie diet I do kickboxing 3 days a week and still gain weight. I feel like I have lost all of my muscle that I had, I have problems going the bathroom, my skin is now oily not a lot but more so then it was before where now I do not where foundation.. My legs feel funny from time to time like my muscle is trying to push out of my skin like a tingling and burning sensation. I get headaches, cramping, nauseas everyday. My cycles are not regular which this last one actual was the first one that was better. My new doctor order new lab work to see if I can still have kids and he said all labs looked great still ovulating, and hormones for that process looked great so I am really confused and in need of some help and advice.. If anyone out there can help me or has any ideas please please I am begging you please reach out to me.

Thank you

Is this good advice?

900 calories seems really low, especially since you are kickboxing.

Has your doctor checked your vitamin levels? If you aren't eating any carbs, as you say, this can cause deficiencies in B vitamins and Vitamin D. The leg problem you describe might be due to something like that.

Hope this helps.
