Backstory: Went to a Health & Wellness doc to get on a supervised diet plan. The diet plan is basically just a low carb diet. He tested total T and result was 320. He has me getting weekly injections of 200mg Test Cyp. I suspect this facility is mostly interested in my money… I decided to get some blood work done just for the hell of it after 7 weeks of diet and TRT shots.
The doc said at one point over the past several weeks that I would “probably” see around a 100pt rise in my total T from the shots. He has never said anything about Free T, Estradiol, etc.

It looks like I need to have a conversation with him regarding an AI. Correct? And probably also lowering my dosage to 100mg p/week?
I’m reading this forum like crazy but wanted to get some input from those more knowledgeable than I.
I actually feel pretty amazing right now. Body comp is changing more over the past several weeks than it had in the past 10 months. Libido is high. Energy high. Sleep is not good but it really never has been.
Anyway, could I get some feedback regarding my numbers and potential direction. I didn’t go into this guy for TRT. But if I’m going to do this, I want to do it right.
Thanks in advance.
