Hi, first post here, hoping to find some advice. I’m a 33 y/o male, lift frequently and by my esitmate would be at about 20% body fat. Haven’t touched any gear so far. I’ve had symptoms that are associated with low T for the better part of a decade now - fatigue, brain fog, low libido, some ED. Also had gyno since puberty.
I got some tests recently and found out my Estradiol is pretty high:
Estradiol160 pmol/L (50-150)
Total Test 17.3 nmol/L (10-35)
Free Test 402 pmol/L (225-725)
SHGB 28 nmol/L (13-71)
FSH 2 iu/L (1-10)
LH 3 iu/L (1-10)
I had the E2 confirmed with a second test a couple weeks later, which came in at 150 that time.
My questions, is that considering my T levels aren’t abysmal (although definitely not as high as I’d like), could my elevated E2 be causing some of my symptoms, and if so, what would my best option be? Start taking an AI like Aromasin? Can that even be kept up indefintely?
Any help is much appreciated!
