I just got my test results back from the lab. A few things stood out but first, some quick history. Three years ago I started TRT, I had all the signed other than weight gain. Test was 205, started testim (1 tube a day) retested in 8 weeks, test was 195. Dr. doubled the dose and it went up to 422. I couldn’t do the cream anymore after a year; to much concern with a wife and 4 young boys, not to add the endless chore and stickiness!
So I started 1cc of testosterone cypionate 200 mg/mL every 2 weeks for 3 months. The drop off on the 12 day was so bad, the Dr. up it 1cc/ week and the results went up to 665 after 6 months. Now we are a year out from that test and I am at 1150.
Here’s a few of my questions;
Is 1150 to high, normal being 241- 827? I havent received a call from my Dr. yet. He only calls if there is something out of wack. I did have both blood work and urinalysis done (just an overall health workup)
I begged for him to do an estrogen test but he only ordered a total. That fell in range 123 pg/Ml and the prolactin was 5.6, any thoughts on this?
GET A LOAD OF THIS ONE! My total cholesterol has dropped from 265 from two years ago to 235 a year ago to now 175. I have had my cholesterol check for the last 20 years and the lowest its ever been was 208. A big factor was a drop in my triglycerides. 330 at one time, last year 212 and now 156.
For the record, I’m 47, always active, lifted ever since I was 15, and never overweight. I have been running for 3 years, 3x a week 4-5 miles/day and plan on doing my first 10k in 5 weeks. On top of all that running, I can still competition squat 600. Not boasting, just saying I feel 25 again!!!
Sorry for the long post but thanks for your time. God Bless!
