I recently got follow up blood work after 6 weeks on TRT. I am in the process of switching to defy medical as my current doctors office is heavily pushing me to take an AI, and the blood work they do is not sufficient.
Before I started TRT they only tested my total T and PSA. Which still qualified me for TRT but they did not look into anything else. For this among other reasons it feels like my current clinic is just a T mil.
Anyways my results just came back and my total is over 850 from the original 300, and my e2 is 51. They told me that my e2 is getting too high and want me to take an AI to bring it back down. I have no plans of taking an ai and they are okay if I do not.
I was prescribed 0.8 ml of testosterone cyponaite a week which I believe translates to roughly 160 mg, and i am also on 500 units of HCG. They told me that my estrogen is going to sky rocket if I inject any higher of testosterone, and that it is going to continue to climb from its current number as well.
Wondering what people’s thoughts are on all of this. Should I try and get off HCG since I am not taking an AI? I believe I am at the lowest effective dose you can prescribe already. If I want to feel a bit better by getting my T a bit higher will that skyrocket my E2 as well?
All in all I feel a lot better then before treatment and like I’m getting things dialed in pretty well over all. So don’t have much complaints personally. Just don’t want to raise my e2 any higher then it currently is.
