Hi. Bloods are below and as you can see everything is within normal ranges. My Ast and Alt were 40 and 34 (with an upper limit of 40). FYIW - ive had liver enzymes in the mid-20s for the past 10 years but this cycle bumped those up 50% - although keeping within normal values.
I did bloods a month after SERMs - on which I ran Nolvadex. These were from an online company so it could've been bunk.
My doc told me to keep 500 cc hCG /.5 Arimidex EOD and continue taking two pumps of testosterone daily – and then he would retest blood is in 4 to 6 weeks and then make a decision.
A few points regarding this protocol:
1) My goal would be to come off everything assuming I can keep my natty T level back to over 500. Would taking a few pumps of Androgel along with the HCG make that harder? My doc told me that my LH will already be suppressed by the HCG so it won't matter - then, I could either stay on TRT or figure out another option (Likely a Serm).
2) I worry about E2 going too low on .5 EOD , as I am prone to anxiety and don't want to deal with low E sides- to which my doc told me to to shut the F- up (he's a good friend of mine) and follow the protocol and take an F-ing Klonopin if I can't sleep
3) I inquired about cycling HCG to avoid sensitivity - he said it's possible - but you come off for a few weeks every few months (assuming I stay on TRT). I read somewhere that you can do 1-2 weeks on, 1-2 weeks off. Doc said no.
4) Clomid vs Nolvadex for LH. Doc and many others say Clomid is a better LH agonist. I hate the shit - gave me bad anxiety when I was trying it but when I ran Nolvadex during pct at 20mg/day for a week, then 15and 10 for the following 2 weeks it barely moved my T level (unless they went up and then crashed again during the month after when bloods were drawn).
Any thoughts on the above - particularly #1.
