[quote=“KSman, post:15, topic:221305, full:true”]E2 is way to high and part of why T is low.
SHBG is low relative to E2 and suggests something else is involved.[/quote]
I’m at %29 body fat (even though i don’t even look overweight). Could that be the reason for the elevated E2?
[quote=“KSman, post:15, topic:221305, full:true”]Prolactin suggests that it may be a factor too.
Never do hCG+SERM. Do one or the other with anastrozole.[/quote]
What i meant by hCG+SERM was to do hCG for 4-6 weeks and if that works, do SERM for 4-6 weeks to get the “hypothalamus and pituitary in the game”. Just like what is suggested in the sticky…or just do SERM (Nolvadex for 4-6 weeks) and if things go back to normal (it’s a succesful restart), i continue with my life and pray my body will keep up by itself - meaning: no hCG.
[quote=“KSman, post:15, topic:221305, full:true”]A restart will not work if reason for E2 is not resolved or post restart will be anastrozole forever.
E2 can be elevated by liver problems and AST/ALT should be tested. Avoid sore muscles and training.[/quote]
AST 24.9u/l (≤40)
ALT 40.2u/l (≤41)
Well prolactin test was done i’d say 40-45 hours after sex. And at the time, i was living with 9 cats…although i didn’t cuddle with them, just occasional petting.
[quote=“KSman, post:15, topic:221305, full:true”]Hypothyroidism typically lowers T levels, so restart is in doubt.
Low T may lower thyroid hormones and vice-versa. Complicated and not well understood.
SERM’s increase E2 levels and T–>E2 inside the testes cannot be controlled by anastrozole.
I am sure that this is confusing. At this point, it would be good for you to be on 0.5mg/week anastrozole in divided doses. Test AST/ALT.[/quote]
What would be the ultimate goal with 0.5mg/week anastrozole? Obviously bring down the E2, but what about the main problem…T? Will i be aiming to increase T levels by decreasing E2? Is that possible? And how long should i be on anastrozole?
