Hi, I’m 41, height 5’5", weight 107 kg (237 lbs) almost 40% body fat.
I’ve been on TRT (Testosterone Enanthate) for almost 8 weeks now on 200mg per week,
Of which first 2 weeks were (every 4th day) and last 6 weeks I’ver been pinning EOD (every 48 hours) still totaling 200mg/week.
Before I started TRT my initial
free testosterone results were :
First few weeks were Shakey, going from feeling great to feeling down and terrible at times, I felt a lot of power at times, workout felt great.
Then it became kinda stable till 5th week when anxiety, insomnia and palpitations kicked in which lasted for two weeks and subsided after I started taking few herbs ( Saw palmato, Passion Flower and Stinging nettle). Sleep and palpitations are better now since last week and still feel a little anxiety on and off
I still don’t feel much of mental improvements kicking in yet even after 8 weeks, although I see muscle and power increase as well as fat gain. In the very beginning of my TRT I did feel a lot confidence and I felt fearless, could be the placebo effect IDK but it felt good, and that’s what I need the most right now.
Now, I want to know what are the Absolute essential lab tests that I need to take, I don’t have insurance and can’t afford a lot. So please guide me towards the bare minimum that I must take , and also what tests I should take 2nd and 3rd priority wise.
Any other suggestions are welcome.
