New to the forum after doing some research on TRT. Absolutely overwhelmed with the info out there and was hoping you guys can help. Age 34, 5ft 10", Weight is around 14st 10lb, probably around 29BMI at the minute.
I’ve never really been in shape, always had puppy fat around my stomach but not really elsewhere on my body. Not much air on my legs, arms, cheeks and neck.
Diet has been good and bad at times, really good when I’ve been hitting the gym hard but didn’t see any good results, aesthetically wise.
Had bloods done on Feb 2018 and the info noted on the results is as follows:
Testosterone - 21.8 nmol/l
Range - 9.00 - 29.00nmol/L
Prolactin - 285 miu/l
Range - 86.00 - 324.00miu/L
TSH Level - 2.65 miu/l
Range - 0.30 - 5.00miu/L
Been really sluggish and down since last year, sex drive isn’t the best, motivational low etc. Got some bloods done through forthwithlife internet service last week and those results are as follows:
Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) - 5.8IU/L
Range - 1.35-13.95
Free Androgen Index - 39.14 Ratio
Range - 23.28 - 107.12
Free Testosterone (calculated) - 0.293nmol/L
Range - 0.19-0.65
Luteinising Hormone (LH) - 7.09IU/L
Range 1.53 - 9.68
Oestradiol (Oestrogen) - 110pmol/L
Range - 37.93 - 166.95
Prolactin - 344mU/L
Range - 83.42 - 333.72
Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin - 44.2nmol/L
Range - 17.39 - 55.72
Testosterone (total) - 17.3nmol/L
Range - 7.99 - 32.63
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) - 2.97miU/L
Range - 0.22 - 5.04
Hoping someone can help me out and advise if my Test is low and requires attention or my oestrogen is too high and requires attention.
I’ve took steroids in the past when I was 21 and 28. I didn’t come off them properly – no pCT. It affected me bad for about 10 weeks but eventually I felt better. No idea what I was taking at the time but I was having a shot of 2ml at 200mg per week.
I don’t mind getting back on something at a smaller dose and accompanied buy other substances to ensure there is no ongoing depression or anxiety etc.
