Thought this would be a good place to ask.
I'm seeing my Endocrinologist tomorrow for the first time and I'm thinking of testing her by asking what blood tests she would like to run. I've been on TRT for six months and noticed my BP has increased from around 120/80 or better to 149/90 or there about. I think it definitely qualifies as stage 1 hypertension. I need to do some more reading but I suspect it is the result of elevated hemoglobin. If she does not ask for this test do you think I should be looking for a new endo. I really don't have any other reason for the recent increase in BP and I have never had a hemoglobin test run in my lab work.
Are there other reasons for elevated BP while on TRT. I am presently on 50mg test cyp every 3.5 days, .5 mg anastrozole EOD and 250 iu HCG EOD.
I have also been using Symbicort to control lung congestion due to allergies.
Iâ??ve taking a couple of other supplements DHEA 50mg/day, Vitamin D 2000 iu/day and Fish Oil 1200iu/day
My cholesterol was just check and was not elevated and never has been. I have been eating much more lately in an effort to put on some more mussel and it has been working.
Thatâ??s about all I think I can add that might be relative. If anyone can point me the direction of some informative reading regarding this issue that would also be great.
Thanks again for all the help here.
