I was interested in knowing if any of you guys have any experience targeting your Estradiol to Total testosterone ratio, instead of targeting the standard 20-30ish range.
I’m asking because over the past few months I have been on a tear trying to feel better, and I was convinced that I was letting my estradiol get to high, and therefore, I was not running right. I’m sure you know what I mean, low or no libido ED etc.
So I decided to start taking blood tests for sensitive estradiol more often, and noticed that I was getting scores of 40-50 which I thought was to high and once I was aware of the score started using AI’s to knock it down.
Well I finally got my score down to 27.1 based on todays results, and I feel like crap much worse than the higher levels. I have nothing going sexually, action or interest.
The I recalled that I read a post from Nelson Vergel, a TRT guru or so I’m told. In any event he was explaining that TRT guy needs to have the correct ratio between estradiol and total testosterone in order to get the desired response from the therapy.
According to Nelson, the formula is Total Test / 14 and again by 20 these two figures would be the proper range that you should keep your estradiol in.
For example: 1000 Total Test score / (divided) 14 = 71.1
/ (divided) 20 = 50.0
So this guy in the example would target his estradiol rang to 50-71.1
I was wondering if this sounds right to you guys. Personally, it makes perfect sense to me, but I don’t really know much about these matters, so I thought I would come to the experts.
Today my Total Test: 1419
Free Test: 33.7
Sen Estradiol 27.1
RDW 15.6 High 12.3- 15.4
If targeting a ratio is the best way to dial in estradiol than I should be running great with an estradiol range of 70.9 - 101.4 which frankly looks scary high to me but I’m a novice.
So I’m asking if this theory of balancing TT to E2 via a ratio make sense.
Your thoughts please, and I know my TT and FT are to high.
