I’m a 35 yr old male, 5’9" height, 185lbs, 20%ish body fat. Had gyno surgery 10 yrs ago not related to AAS. I have read this site daily for a year. I’ve worked out for 10 years with some years harder than others.
Been on TRT for 8 months at 180mg/week, daily sub-q injections. As shown on the labs below I’m obviously lowering my dose. Going to try 120mg/week to see where that puts me and go from there. So yes I understand my test level is super high. My main concern is thyroid, adrenals, anemia, iron, etc.
My main reason for getting the blood work done is I have very little energy, drive, seem to get sick often, head is a little cloudy, and just don’t feel right. I felt exactly the same for years pre-trt so the high T levels aren’t the culprit for this. I’m sure bringing my current T dosage down will help to feel somewhat better but the main problems I’m having are something else. My T levels before TRT were at 500 and estrogen (non sensitive) was 48. I was put on TRT basically because I didn’t know any better at the time. I thought maybe even though I had a decent level that it could help with how I was feeling.
My father was recently diagnosed with hashimotos so it prompted me to think maybe I have something going on in the thyroid area.
I felt the best I ever felt when I did keto and intermediate fasting for about 3 months (this was before TRT) but I didn’t feel 100%. Not sure if that helps.
I take daily:
400mg magnesium glycinate (200mg morning/night)
5,000 Vitamin D
100 K2 (mk7)
Let me know what you see on the labs. I need to point out I was getting over a sinus infection at the time of the blood test.
I appreciate all of your help with this and I really value this website.
