I just got some blood work done and I thought I'd post my results as an ongoing update to this discussion...
Testosterone, Total, LC/MS 839.0 ng/dL (348.0 - 1197.0)
Adult male reference interval is based on a population of lean males
up to 40 years old.
Free Testosterone(Direct) 12.9 pg/mL (8.7 - 25.1)
Dihydrotestosterone 27 ng/dL
Reference Range: Adult Male: 30 - 85
T4,Free(Direct) 1.47 ng/dL (0.82 - 1.77)
TSH 4.860 uIU/mL (0.450 - 4.500 03)
Triiodothyronine,Free,Serum 2.5 pg/mL (2.0 - 4.4)
Estradiol, Sensitive 11.4 pg/mL (8.0 - 35.0)
I think my DHT is about where I want it. It's not dead but pretty low. I am assuming that with it low, I would eventually see my male pattern baldness decline.
However, I think my free T is lower than I want, from a bodybuilding perspective.
E2 is probably a bit too low. I will probably space my A-dex doses out a bit more.
Any thoughts on these labs? Please feel free to comment, I'm experimenting and trying to learn.
