Hello all hope everyone is doing well.
Got some questions about TRT and acne.
Currently on TRT and have been for about 9 months now.
Im currently on 160mg a week on two seperate injections of 80mg 3.5- 4 days apart.
I take .5mg of AI on days of injection aswell. Recently lowered my dosage from 180mg a week, of 2 weekly injections of 90mg.
Also was taking .5m of AI on days of injection previously.
Right now im struggling with some forehead acne, aswell as some mild to mild severe back acne. (The cystic type).
Here is currently what I take in terms of supplements(some are for helping the acne Others are general health, I will indicate which I take for helping acne)
Vitamin A (ACNE)
Vitamin B5 (ACNE)
Cortisol Management pills
Nizoral Shampoo DHT blocker 3x a week, rub face and back (ACNE)
listen below are the labs from 180mg a week of trt
Hemoglobin A1C 5.1 4.5-6.0 %
Creatinine A 113 45-110 umol/L
Estimated GFR 80 >=60
Alkaline Phosphatase 114 40-145 U/L
Gamma GT 13 < 49 U/L
ALT 22 <50 U/L
TSH 1.51 0.47-3.41 mU/L
Prostate Specific Ag 0.25 <2.5 ug/L
Estradiol 120 <182 pmol/L
Testosterone 30.4 8.4-28.8 nmol/L
C Reactive Protein (High Sensitivity) 0.4 < 4.8 mg/L
This is test results for 180mg a week with .5mg days of injection.
I Don’t have a copy of full blood work but this is the most recent brief one.
If I were to guess 4 days after injection on my current regime of 160mg my T is around 25nmol/L. Im even fine with lowering dosage more as long as I don’t notice a serious differnce in the pros of trt.
I do have an Endocrinologist I go and see, but reaching out to find more perspective on TRT. Let me know what you guys think! Ide love to hear some remedies for this nasty acne.
