Took blood work about 5 weeks after I got off testosterone and here are my results. I’m in Germany so measurements are different than use.
FYI I don’t have a deficiency. Just someone who been taking anabolics off and on for years, but now I just stick to Test between 150-300mgs. Usually I come one about 4 months and take couple months off.
My Hematocrit levels are 56!!(range 38-Hemoglobin 18.6(range [13.1-16.8] Testosterone 3 .8 ([2.50-8.40ng/ml) E2 10 [11-43]
My levels are always in the normal range when I’m off. I understand my HCT levels being high since I never donated and I never give the time for them to level in normal range.
Blood pressure is always normal, no headaches, chest pain or nothing.
Symptoms brain fog/ Brain Spacey feeling, lethargic. I do have natural high anxiety (courtesy of the Iraq war back in 2003)
Sex drive is normal, but not like when I’m on.
I’m currently on torimifine for a few weeks now. 60mgs ED first two weeks and 40mgs this last week.
I was never on AI’s during the last for 4 months since I kept my test dosage low and I’m not prone to gyno. Just water weight bloat and I’m fine with that.
Doc didn’t seem to concern with my HCT, but I know it’s an issue. I expected at least a script for blood letting. I can’t donate (had lyme disease once upon a time)
Has anyone ever had problems with low E2 while off and anyway to bring em up to normal range? I usually range from 40-100 while on without an AI.
