I recently started TRT for all the normal stuff, specifically weight loss and muscle growth. I am currently injecting 100mg/week of test cyprionate. My starting level of free testosterone was 160 ng/dl and now they are at 616 ng/dl.
I’ve had a horrible time getting any weight of since starting, and have suffered from extreme gyno since the age of 13 (which I know is partially due to my weight). I had suspicions about estrogen, so I asked my endo to do the blood work.
It came back as 83 pg/ml, which I have read that a normal high is 35. She said I shouldn’t be worried about it because I am not taking enough T to create those levels and as long as I am doing cardio, that number should come down. I asked her about drugs, but she refused to put me on anything. But I am wondering if high estrogen has been the problem all along rather than the low T. My body would certainly tell that story.
I am considering going to a second doctor, but thought I would check here. Does that advice sound right?
I also ordered liquid arimidex and plan on starting it tomorrow. Any advice on dosing with my levels?
