First time posting after lurking for the last few months. About me 38 years old, 175lbs, not a gym rat but lift M-W-F and HIIT swim T-TH-S. Been on TRT for 4 weeks @ 100mg once a week with no AI, just taking zinc per their rec.
Original Labs (my primary)
Total T was 208
Free T was 5.6
She didn’t check estrogen
Day 1 Clinic Labs
Total T 195
Total T 346
My question is more to the science as to why my T went up a smaller amount and my estrogen almost tripled. The clinic doc told me today over the phone that he was going to up my dose to 130mg and start me on an AI… for next 8 weeks then redo the labs. This sound right? I would figure if doing the math that if they are trying to get my T up to 800 on my low day, shouldn’t they bump it more than that or is now the higher estrogen at a still low level a cause for concern for them to bump too much?
I am sure the guy knows what he is doing but all sounded like it wasn’t right to me.
Thanks in Advance for the replies and help.
