I started supplementing pregnenolone cream at 50mg/ml as my dhea was low as well as other hormones, but when supplementing with dhea, my dhea levels went up but E2 went sky high as in 54 and pre arimidex and no dhea E2 was 39.
Pre pregnenolone levels/ but on arimidex 1/2mg twice a week
Total T 20.8 (10-33)
Free T 41.5 (60-130)
dhea 2.1 (2.2-15.5)
5 weeks of preg cream 50mg and arimidex 1/2mg 3 times a week
Total T 27.8
Free T 53.2
dhea 2.9??? 1070 ng/ml (800-5100) not sure of dhea convertion to si units(please correct if im wrong)
I actually thought pregnenolone would have increased my dhea alot more and suprised it increased my T levels as high as they did. My doc said no TRT as total T is very high even though free T is still low but he said it might be because of other meds im on(antiviral meds for chronic viral infections ebv/cmv plus other meds) would effect free T conversion in the liver so have to look into other meds im on and see what i can change. My E2 has come down but is E2 a good level?, i believe others aim for alot lower. I need to get my dhea levels higher so looking at increasing pregnenolone abit higher and see if dhea go's higher and maybe free T, maybe just add a very low dose of dhea like 10mg.
Symptom wise i have noticed an increase in energy, ive lost some weight from my waist and some joint pain has eased. Maybe as the weight comes off my E2 might come down as well. Sex drive has increased abit too.
Any other opinions greatly appreciated,
