Im a 27yo male from germany, 72kg, 178cm, good beard growth, thinning hair, bodyfat around 20%, training since 10 years, and noticed weakness and all the other low t symptoms 4-5 years ago. My total t back then was always around 7,5-8,5nmol/L. So i went to 4 different doctors, and only one of them prescribed me testosteron gel. But i never used it, because i was scared of starting trt at such a young age, and heard bad stuff about the gel. So the last years i made 0 progress at the gym, even though it is my biggest passion. Every time i’m in the gym, i have no pump or drive, feel anxious and can not increase my weights.
When I was 20 years old, I had made extreme progress in no time, now it is total different.
Now i startet finasteride 6 months ago (hairloss), and suddenly my t levels are a lot higher than the last 3 years. But i dont feel any better or stronger.
The other problem is that i have heart arrythmias (extra beats), specially when i am under stress.
I already went to 2 different cardiologist, and they told me my heart is healthy and there is no problem. Is this dangerous for my trt idea, and how risky is a higher T level with heart arrythmia?
Will there be a difference in building muscles with lower end t levels, in comparison to high end of the reference range? I heard some people say it doesnt matter if you are high or low, unless you are having supraphysiological levels.
These where the labs 1 year ago:
Free T: 42.8pmol/l
And these are from today:
E2 126 pmol
shbg 26.9 nmol
total t 20.1 nmol
free androgen index fai 74.7
I wanna start self medication, with 150mg Enanthate e5d (subq injection) and a calorie reduced diet. I also have Arimidex on the hand, if i feel some increase in E2. Dosage would be 0,25mg 2 times per week. Do you guys think i could benefit from a trt, or would I have to go on a real cycle (250mg e5d) with my current values, to notice any improvement at all? btw sorry for my bad english
