I’m not sure on why Albumin is high. The only thing I can figure is that the blood draw was done on a Wednesday, and I had a pretty good workout the evening before. Maybe the levels were high due to recovery after intense exercise, coupled with mild dehydration? The doc never mentioned it.
I do take fish oil supplements every morning. I’m hoping that after a month or so on keto my cholesterol and blood sugar levels will come down a bit. We’ll see.
My insurance does not pay for TRT, but they cover the office visits and lab work so that’s a plus. I think I will eventually go with Defy as I would rather have confidence in the person prescribing my care, not having to argue with them like a child to try and convince them to give me proper treatment. I guess I shouldn’t complain because she does at least listen and will eventually allow me to plead my case. That’s a good quality too. I just think that it shouldn’t have to come down to me having to learn everything about TRT on my own, and pretty much do the job for them, when that’s what I’m paying them for. If I hired a contractor to build me a house, and then I had to go and teach the contractor how to properly prepare and pour the foundation to make sure that I didn’t have shifting floors and cracks in the slab, then I would probably have enough doubts to go and find a more knowledgeable contractor! Lol
I really shouldn’t complain though. As you said, my levels aren’t that bad. And concerning blood sugar and cholesterol, and even the off normal albumin, they are high but not too crazy. The cholesterol has come down a little since the last test. Most of the information I can find says that a normal Albumin range is up to 5.4 so I’m still not too bad there. Not sure why this labs ranges are so tight. Their normal range for T is 240-950. I don’t understand how any lab can consider 240 to be within a normal range.
Thanks for replying man.
