Here’s the scoop…
I’m 27 years old and just started on HRT therapy…
I was tested by an idiot doctor 10 years ago and after my levels coming back at 240 free test all he said was “Your young…you don’t need to take testosterone”
Fast forward…I have been living with low test for 10 years and have gained 100+ pounds since then (although I am an ex powerlifter)…I still have a good amount of muscle on my body…just alot of fat now to go along with it…
I just got my test levels tested again and here’s how they came back (given I was sleep deprived and had been up for over 24+ hours at that point)…
Total Test: 134 ng/dl
Free Test %: 2.0
Free Test: 26.9 pg/ml
TSH: 1.750 uIU/ml
Sex Horomone Binding Globulin: 29 nmol/L
I have started on 200 mg/ml Test Cypionate every 2 weeks…
Got a few questions:
- I have had Gyno in the past and had surgery to remove it (it was there after I hit puberty and was removed when I was 19)
Is this Test dosage enough to cause Gyno again?
Should I take the Testosterone and split it into a 100mg/.5ml weekly dosage instead of the current prescription? I understand that this will cause more stability in my test levels…but since it is less of a dosage will it also not cause as much of a rise in T levels as the 200mg weekly dose would? IE I am wondering if I would be sacrificing having higher test levels for having more stable Test levels with this dosage scheme?
Since I am taking a steroid…how can I cater my workout/eating habits to make the most of my Test Levels after I take my injection so I can reap better benefits muscle gain wise and fat loss wise? (I was mainly thinking in terms of workout timing after I inject…as well as eating habits after I inject…)
Any other recommendations are appreciated!
Thanks in advance
