I had labs run in 2007 as no libido, no morning wood. I was post divorce and not interested in dating and did not pursue doing anything about this at the time except taking Adex - 1 mg / week. I used ChemOne Adex. The results below reflect taking 1 mg / week Adex. I have not done TRT but posting here because need advice about labs and what to do.
I am going to have more labs drawn ASAP. I do want to ask if you have suggestions. The Endo doc said he had never seen low E2 but high E and did not know what to do which scares me.
E2 = 26
Total E = 157 lab normal range = 40 - 115 for adult male
TT = 490
FT = 11.1 pg/mL
LH = 3.0
Prolactin = 4.7
FSH = 11.7
Cortisol = 15.7
Pregnenolone = 138
I am 52 years old, 6' 2" tall. A few years back I got lean and weighed 170. Today I am 185 so carrying 15 lbs fat. But with Adex my E2 levels are good.
Yesterday I started taking 200 mg DIM, 3x daily and lots of pro-biotics marketed as specifically for men. No change this morning when I awoke. No morning wood. With effort only half an erection.
Any ideas on what could cause high total E with E2 low?
The Endo had an adrenal scan done which came back negative for adrenal tumors.
The Endo doc has never seen this.
He said that the high total E was likely killing my desire.
If DIM and pro-biotics are a fix, how long for them to work?
Can the Adex itself be blocking the other estrogens from clearing my liver?
