Hello, 32 year old here. Started TRT 12/21/18 after being diagnosed with low T (161 ng/dl). Doctor started me on 200mg test cyp per week, administered every 3.5 days. After a hiccup in late December missing an injection by a day, I decided to change to 85mg every 3 days (for consistency), which equals 198/week averaged out. Injected SubQ with 5/8" syringe E3D in evenings, taken with 85mg Anastrazole Liquid also E3D.
Prior blood work results:
Testosterone, Total: 161 ng/dl
Estradiol, sensitive: 22 pg/mL
Bloodwork 2/26/2019 results: TRT/Anastrazole dosed every 3 days at 11pm (72 hours between injections). Blood work was drawn 34 hours after last injection. Was this too soon?
Testosterone, Total: 1650 ng/dl
Estradiol, sensitive: 37 pg/mL
Based on these results, I need to reduce my T dosage significantly. This should bring down the T which is too high and also the E2, which is also too high. SHBG at 32, I dont know what this means. Whether I should change to weekly injections or not. Sex drive is fine, upgraded from pre-TRT but not really a transformation.
I think the H/H is okay. However, I am also very concerned with the health of my thyroid. I have started supplementing with iodized salt in the past 6 weeks. As far as symptoms, I have noticed alot of dry skin and overall extreme tiredness. What should I test to see how my thyroid is behaving?
If anyone has any experience and can help shine some light on my blood work or lower thyroid I would really appreciate it! Looking forward to dialing in the dosing so everything works out. I have been lurking on this site for a while and learning alot.
