TRT newbie. Typical symptoms across the board. Initial labs from Labcorp are,
Total testosterone - 307 284-916 ref.
Free testosterone - 4.1 8.7-25.1 ref.
IGF-1 -217 88-246 ref.
Estradiol -13.1 7.6-42.6 ref.
I am 5’7" 185, 32 years old.
Prescribed are 160mg test cyp, Hcg, Anastrozole. One shot a week test, one shot a week hcg and after fourth week 0.5mg Anastrozole per week. I was told my E2 was low and to wait on 0.5. Doctor says he wants my levels up before I use any Anastrozole. Also, directions say 1000 IU per week hcg, does this sound right? From what little research I’ve done it seems a bit much.
First shot taken Wednesday afternoon. So far I felt my mood very improved as of yesterday. Pumps in the gym are already noticeable. Will post all bloodwork here as it’s completed. Full blood panel will be completed at 6 weeks. I will provide an official copy. Any and all feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys, Cabby
