Been on HCG mono for about 6 months now. Still fatigued, moody, and carrying extra belly fat. My drive and mood has declined a bit more in my opinion. Made some nice gains in the gym but that’s really my only positive.
Protocol - HCG 1000iu 3x week
Other supplement - Omega 3’s, pre Kaged, post Jym, 2-3 proteins shakes per day.
Gym 5-7 days per week 1 - 1.5 hours per visit. Weights and minor cardio.
Total Test- 908 (250-1100ng/dL) was 285 before HCG
Free Test- 181.6 (35-155 pg/ml) was 45
E2 ultrasensitive- 55 (<29 pg/ml) never checked
SHBG- 32 (10-50 nmol/L)
DHEA-S- 114 (106-464 mcg/dL)
Vit D, 25-OH 32 (30-100 ng/ml)
TSH- 1.97 (0.4-4.5 mlU/L) was 2.33 on Feb 1, 2018
T4 Total- 7.9 (4.5-12 mcg/dL) was 7.4
T4 Free- 1.0 (.8-1.8 ng/dL)
T3 Total- 107 (76-181 ng/dL)
T3 Free- 3.3 (2.3-4.2 pg/mL)
RT3- 17 (8-25 ng/dL) Tested Feb 1, 2018
Iron- 126 (50-180 mcg/dL)
Ferritin- 62 (20-380 ng/mL)
Vit B12- 432 (200-1100 pg/mL)
Folate Serum- 8.9 ng/mL
I sleep about 7 hours a night. Don’t always feel rested. No sleep apnea. Been checked twice. I sweat like I’m in an oven. It was bad before HCG, just the same, if not a little worse now. It really kicked in when I hit 30 and it has gotten slightly worse every year for the past 10 years. Ive read that head-sweating can be caused by low Vit D. It looks like I’m at the low end of the scale. Could that be the culprit? Also looks like I’m on the lower end of a few other things.
Thought… opinion… greatly appreciated. Thanks for the continued help.
