- finding a TRT doc
E2=39pg/ml is your problem.
The therapeutic goal is 22pg/ml which is optimal for energy, libido, mood, fat loss and fat patterns.
Easy to calculate the new Arimidex/anastrozole dose:
new dose = old dose X E2/22
new dose = 0.25mg X 39/22
But you stated that you only tool Arimidex once a week. As serum anastrozole levels were often near zero, we can't do calculations.
TT=820 is also not very useful as TT peaks and drops and lab results are mostly more of a lab timing artifact than anything else.
Do labs, always, halfway between injections so changes are not timing artifacts. So you can't do labs just because you are at doc's office one day.
Inject 100mg T twice a week.
Take 0.5mg anastrozole at time of injections
Later on, get E2 tested and the use suggested formula to calculate a new dose. The result will defy pill splitting. Dissolve anastrozole 1mg/ml in vodka and dispense by the drop or by volume.
Very few doctors understand these issues. Never assume that what a doc says about hormones is factual. Lab normal ranges are statistics, normal distributions, and docs then take the word normal as a normal state of heath. Many men in the sample populations that created the ranges had high E2 and problems, their quality of life and general health sucked, and that is normal.
