Thanks, for reference, these labs were drawn Monday 09/14 5 days after dose
testosterone dose is not right, you are confusing ml’s with mg’s? Please report in mg’s which will be ml x mg/ml[/quote]
Yeah I messed it up, its a 10 ml vial with 200mg/ml. I was pescribed 150mg/0.75ml every 10 days. After reading all of this I started 100mg/0.5ml week.
[quote]E2=7.3 is way too low. You should try to get close to E2=22pg/ml.
Your dose is .5mg twice a week. Change to 0.5mg X 7,3/22 = .17mg
You seem to be an anastrozole over-responder.
Dissolve anastrozole doses in vodka, 1mg/ml and dispense by the drop, noting drops per ml or dispense by volume.[/quote]
Interesting on 08/07, before the Anastrozole, my estrogen was 342.2 (range was 60-190) when tested by docs lab. the labs above were drawn on 09/14 from a local AnyLabTestNow (my TT was 1,048, range 250 to 100, on the previous 08/07 test too FT and E2 not tested).
That said I will dose the anastrozole this way. Is there a max batch I can make or can I do a month, 2 months at a time using 90proof bourbon?
[quote]When you inject T once a week your levels vary greatly. This creates two significant other problems:
- your lab results are more a function of lab timing than protocol/dosing
- your serum anastrozole levels never really match your serum FT or bio-T levels
You need to inject twice a week and take anastrozole at that time.[/quote]
Sub-Q or IM like I’m doing now?
[quote]Low E2 makes blood lipids worse and might be making your joints ache.
Add 5,000iu vit-D3
Statin drugs lower CoQ10 in some reducing mitochondrial mechanism, weakening muscles, affecting heart, causing mechanics of congestive heart failure with a chronic cough. See thread “hormones and health”. Supplemental Co!10 is needed and should be exactly Ubiquinol type.
CoQ10 deficiency can also lead to fat gain, inability to loose fat, reduced insulin sensitivity, low energy.[/quote]
Adding Vitamin D3
Any suggestions for dose of CoQ10, I see 50mg and 100mg for sale
[quote]Similar problems with low thyroid function as fT3 regulates mitochondrial metabolism and thus body temperatures.
Yes, TSH looks good, but also check oral body temperature as TSH is only part of the story:
- when you first wake up, 97.7-97.8 is good, higher OK, 97.3 is a problem
- also check for 98.6 mid-afternoon
Does your multi-vit list iodine and selenium? yes, but you need more that 150mcg iodine
Do you use iodized salt? Told not to use salt?[/quote]
I have not been told not to use salt, but I also have never used much salt. I will review the Thyroid thread again and see what else I can improve.
General aches and pains from doing dumb stuff when I was younger and ending up (so far) living twice as long as I thought I would, and arthritis, weight lifting.
[quote]Magnesium can help with PB and muscle cramps.
Vit K1/K2 can help with arteries and BP
Vit-D3 can help with arteries and BP[/quote]
Get 450mg mag daily. More?
Get 80mcgs of K1 daily. More needed?
Will add K2 and D3
[quote]Blood is getting to thick in some regards. Look to see what foods you are eating that might be iron fortified and eliminate.
Do not be dehydrated for your fasting lab work, drink water.[/quote]
Doc told me TRT can do this and to start donating blood, it was 19.2 on 08/07 and its down after 2 donations.
I had not fasted for this lab since I wasn’t worried about Cholesterol
