White male, 6’3" 190lbs, 8.5% bodyfat, I’ve done 2 cycles and a few sarms. I hit the gym 4-5x a week and get a solid 4-5miles of cardio everyday. My diet is unwieldy but I estimate a macro split of 40p/40c/20f. I drink a fuckton of caffeinated beverages: up to 3 bangs a day and a coffee or two so pretty close to a gram a day.
It has been a solid year since I’ve done a cycle (of which I follow proper PCT) and I was prompted to get bloods by newly sensitive nips. I’ve never done tren/deca/npp.
My results were striking to me:
- Testosterone serum - 409 ng/dL
- Free Testosterone - 5.81 ng/dL
- Estradiol - 18.9 pg/mL
- FSH - 2.0 mIU/mL
- LH - 6.2 mIU/mL
- TSH - 2.35 uIU/mL
- SHBG - 55.6 nmol/L
- Prolactin - 29.4 ng/mL
- BUN - 23 mg/dL
My T is woeful, the prolactin is about 2x the high range, my TSH is high, the SHBG is way high, my BUN indicates my kidneys are overworked… and while my LH is high, the FSH is low.
I did have what I thought was residual estrogen gyno from my cycle which I have been treating with Raloxifene for the last 6 months–but now that I see that my e2 is not so high, I wonder if it’s just the prolactin.
2 years ago my natural total t was ~800… so It’s looking like the fast track to TRT.
I’m wondering what my recourse is and why the prolactin would be so high. I’ve scheduled an appointment with my GP early next week and will try and get an early visit with an endo.
