I am 35 years old and went to urologist 7 months ago with low T symptoms. They only ran TT which came back 270. They put me on 200 mg test cyp weekly. I felt much better with a few side effects such as hot flashes, nipple itching and pain. I started taking vitamin D3 which eliminated the nipple issues. When I mentioned that to the Urologist he insisted on sending me to the endo. The endo freaked out that I my RBC and hemocratic were a little high. He wanted me to stop taking test for two months to re-evaluate. I decided to follow his advice thinking he was an expert. I did surprisingly good coming off.
After two months I got blood work done. I had to request prolactin & E2. I called to get results and was told that they were normal and did not need treatment. I had to ask specifically to get actual results. I had to argue that 207 was not normal for a 35 year old man, even by my limited knowledge. He said based on my free test % of 3.6 I was normal.
After getting results mailed to me today I see that actual free test is 7.45 ng/dl with reference range of 5 - 21. I know I need to wait several more months to recover from 10 weeks of TRT to make final decision but do I need to find a new endo or is he correct. Thanks for helping as I am confused and my Primary Doctor, Urologist and Endo seem clueless.
I have all my test results from the start if needed.
