I recently had my labs done and my initial labs were at 80mg 2x/ week and the doc increased me to 90mg 2x/ week after my labs a year ago. I’ve been that for about a year now and got my labs drawn and my levels were really high. I haven’t been working out as much due to being busy at work, my only thought is “my body isn’t using it” but that’s not really how this shit works.
I have a visit with the doc but was wondering if anyone had any insight as to why my levels would be so high? Bloodwork was drawn before injection on my trough day, I was even racking my brain to think was I dumb enough to get my blood drawn afterwards but I definitely didn’t do that lol.
Assuming no variation in medication, trough measurement then SHBG would provide some indication of why your TT increased. But then I see what appears to be Quest ED fT (ref range 35-155 pg/ml) values as well. The linearity between the TT and fT tells me SHBG is not the issue and there was either a significant shift in what you are injecting or your elimination rate of free T changed drastically.
The second data point looks like a trough and the third looks like a peak assuming the former dosage/frequency applies to the 2nd data point and the later dosage/frequency applies to the third.
To clarify, please provide weekly equivalent injection amounts? 90 mg/week or 180 mg/week for third data point?
180mg/week labs were done on Thursday morning and last injection was Sunday night @ 90mg. Does a change in exercise have any relevance? Lol that’s legit the only thing I can think of or the test is misdosed
