So I went in yesterday and had my 3-week follow up. Planned on talking with the Doc but he was ‘very busy’, and as their lab was ‘down for calibration’, they recommended I head home and that the doctor would call me later that day.
I’ve been on ~125mg of T Cyp a week, spread over 2 injections (Monday and Thursday), 25iu of HCG 3x week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday), and then .5mg anastrazole twice a week, with each injection.
No reference ranges were provided:
Total T: 836
Free T: They don’t test for this as “it doesn’t change the treatment plan”. Fair enough.
Hematocrit / blood viscosity: “good, no meaningful change”
The Doctor wants me to move up to 200mg per week with once a week injections (Monday), and then come in for another test on a Thursday.
If 125mg a week has brought my levels from mid 200 to mid 800, then it seems like 125mg a week works for me. Upping the dose to 200mg in a single shot and then testing me 3 days later, they’re obviously going to get a much higher reader - probably well over 1000.
I have a feeling that this is part of Numale’s game, though I’m not sure how that makes any sense yet.
Fortunately, I do my homework.
I’m going to order my own labs to validate their results and to check other markers, as they only test a very few things. That, and with their lab being in-house, who knows how accurate the numbers are.
I’d like to get LH and FSH tested a few more times, as there were the concerns about pituitary issues. Additionally I’d like to get my TSH, fT3, fT4 and rT3 checked.
I’m also going to call the doc this week and go over why he wants me to nearly double my dose when my levels are already above 800, and why he wants me to inject once a week.
Any recommendations on where to order custom labs from? I normally use wellnessfx.com
As for how I’m feeling after 3 weeks - a little better. More motivation, less depression, more frequent morning erections (1 - 3 per week). Strength training is slightly easier, and I’ve gained about 6 pounds without having changed my diet or my training program.
