I am a 45 male and have been on TRT (testim gel 50/Day) for about 3 months. i have just done may labs in order to optimise my TRT protocol. here are my results:
TT: 11.40 ug/L (2.49-8.36)
FT: 15.40 pg/mL (4.6-19.4)
E2: 13.3 ng/L (15.5-63.3)
TSH: 4.8 mUI/L (0.4-4.2)
FT3: 2.9 ng/L (2.1-4.4)
I have a couple of questions:
I have been taking anastrozol 3 X .25mg per week in order to reduce my previous high E2 of 41.5. obviously I overshoot it and consequently my E2 is now too low. I intend to reduce it to 1 x .25mg per week in order to keep it below 30, ideally near 22. Is there a way of correctly establishing the right dose?
I am bit puzzled of my super high TSH value of 4.8. previously the value was 4.0 and therefore i did IR as recommended by the stickies. I did 37.5 mg / day for 3 weeks with 50 mg of selenium. I am now doing Iodine of 2 x 3 mg / week with 50 mg of selenium /day. How is it that my TSH went higher instead of going down?
Do I need to take thyroid on top of all this?
