Blood Tests Back


#1

I got my blood test results back. I take 100mg of test cypionate a week at the time of these blood tests and no AI was used at all. After these resutls I started on 6mg of aromasin every other day. I dont have that great erections is the reason for adding it in and I have tiny bit of water retention in my cheek area. And remeber this is Pmol/l. I am in Canada. What are your guys thoughts on these results and me adding in aromasin after I got the results back?

Free test 646 reference range 196-636 pmol/L
Estradiol 91 refereance range < 150 pmol/L

Anyone have any input or thoughts on this matter?


#3

I have no direct knowledge of aromasin, but you do need to reduce your E2. Did you get a CBC?


#4

Yeah I got a CBC. Everything was in normal range. Do you know what a good e2 level is for me?


#5

I’m not sure in pmol/L but I believe I’ve seen a conversion chart that says 22pg/ml=6pmol/L. If so, you are way out of whack. But I urge you to check this conversion on your own.


#6

What is a good e2 level in pg/ml?


#7

22 seems to be the sweet spot. Yours is high, I just have no idea how aromasin works. I use anastrozole.


#8

22 pg/ml is 80 pmol/l, you do not need an AI for this dose of T. 91 pmol/l= 25 pg/ml. So you’re good.

Wow, I’m glad you jumped in. I was way off. Mea culpa…


#10

How come I hold a tiny bit of water then? I thought water is estrogen related?


#11

There are other factors that impact a thing like this. 25 is not high at all though.


#12

What other factors could it be? It has always been this way from the first few weeks of going on TRT and I have been on it almost 4 years now.


#13

Look for potential food sensitivities! Gut problems and so on. I personally am not that familiar with this, you could research more. However, I am positive that e2 is not a reason for this.
