My Estraidol was tested at is at 58. Over the standard range. I’m on 2 Androgel packets a day (40.5 mt 1.6%). Initially I felt great. Now I feel most of the positives- energy, confidence, libido are waning. I got this test about two months ago; so it may have gone up since. Unfortunately, over that time I had major surgery and am still recovering so couldn’t get checked out. My doctor who I saw today, seemed unconcerned and thought it was not alarming (he didn’t even check again for Estraidol). However, he is fairly conservative. His recommendation was to increase the dose because my test levels are not great (350) but I know that with gel, the test levels don’t always synch with how you feel (unlike shots). I would like to get on an aromotase (sp?) inhibitor. I know many who are on TRT say that even 30 is high and affects the way you feel.
Opinions? How serious is it; and what do you recommend?
