I am new here but have read a several of the threads. Unfortunately I am still very confused as to everything I am reading.
When I went to my doctor I explained several symptoms I was having and she tested me for low testosterone; this was mainly due to a testicular injury I had when younger.
With that said, it seems as though my testosterone was in the normal range.
Though I was in the normal range, after reading about TRT (while waiting on test results) and asked if we could try TRT to bring me to the upper end of the range. She agreed and put me on 100 mg/wk Cyp.
After 5 weeks she wanted to do blood tests. On top of the above I asked for my Estrodiol to be tested as well based on what I have read here.
My appointment to see my doctor again is in 2 weeks and I was looking for additional information before I go and see her. She is very open and is willing to work with me to ensure I am health and happy. Her notes were that my Free Test was high, but I should continue my current treatment plan.
I am wondering if my E2 is a bit high? I have read a couple places by a couple people that a good ref for your E2 is your SHBG. If they are aproximately the same, people tend to feel the best. Is this true? Should I ask about getting on an AI like Armidex @ .25 mg/EoD?
Thanks in advance for any help.
