I've been on TRT for 6 weeks now. I'm taking 100mg T once per week, and .25mg anastrozole EOD. I got blood drawn at the midpoint between shots, and this is what I am looking at now.
Free Testosterone 13.05 ng/dL (5.2-18.0) Normal
Estradiol 12 pg/mL (11-44)
SHBG 26 nmol/L (12-59) Normal
DHEAS 546 ug/dL (140-484) Above high normal
(No TT was test done)
My doctor was looking at my DHEAS number and wanted to bump up my anastrozole dose to .5 EOD. That doesn't sound right to me, because with Estradiol at 12, I'm already too low, right? Isn't the suggested target for E2 around 22 pg/mL? Obviously I'm super new at this, but I think the appropriate move for me might be to lower my anastrozole dose to .25 every two days.
What do you say? Listen to the Doc and raise anastrozole to 1.5-2mg per week? Stay where I am at 1mg per week? Lower the dose to .5-.75mg per week to let Estradiol levels increase?
