tl;dr: I need to switch to a new doc, and doc wants to see “baseline” so wants to see labs taken two weeks post injection. I’m also taking thyroid medication, and ferritin was high on past two blood tests. New Dr. thinks it might be due to too-high T despite Hematocrit not being high (also tested positive for two copies of H63D mutation, but doc still not sold on hemochromotosis).
- Is two weeks really enough for T-cyp to clear my body?
- Is it common for high T to cause high iron even with normal hematocrit?
- New doc says HCG not needed if things are “balanced” correctly, that nuts won’t shrivel. Is there anything to that?
I’m worried I’ll have to lower my T dose more than I’d prefer.
200 mg T-Cyp every 10 days, broken into two doses
1/2 tablet Aromasis taken per T dose
HCG 2-3x weekly
50 mcg Levothyroxine daily
