I wanted to share my progress so far. As well as update this log in the future.
Probably 25% BF
Here are my pre TRT numbers:
Total T: 477 (264-916)
SHBG: 47.5 (16.5-55.9)
FSH: 3.1 (1.5-12.4)
Estradiol: 15.4 (7.6-42.6)
LH: 4.8 (1.7-4.6)
Before starting, symptoms were declining libido, no morning wood, depression, lethargy, no motivation, suicidal thoughts, anger, irritability.
I started TRT 8 weeks ago. Protocol is Test Cyp. 125mg/week, split E3D. Test only, no AI.
Here are my labs from today:
Total T: 772 (264-916)
SHBG: 38.1 (16.5-55.9)
Estradiol: 23.6 (7.6-42.6)
I was feeling great for the first 6 weeks, depression lifted and so did brain fog. But the last 2 weeks I’m starting to relapse, and my old symptoms are coming back. All except libido. I’m doing pretty good in that department now.
I have Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. I’m taking T4 only and have had pretty good lab results from that. 125mcg levothyroxine.
Here are my current thyroid labs:
TSH: 0.815 (0.45-4.50)
FT3: 3.2 (2.0-4.4)
FT4: 1.44 (0.82-1.77)
I would really like to improve my mood and energy. Suggestions are welcome.
Edit: All labs above were measured at trough, including thyroid.
