High Natural T-Levels, Why??


#1

Hello folks,

First post so go easy on me, looking for a bit of advice on naturally high test levels and what could be causing it?

I have been having issues losing fat so have been investigating things. Through some blood tests I discovered that I had unsually high E2 levels (+120pg/mL), presumably as a result of being a bit of a fat b$%^&*d. Anyway Iâ??ve been using a few aromatase inhibitors to drop my levels down and with a lot of trial and error amid bouncing levels (from 7.79-123.8), I now seem to be on the right track.
What has also come to light is that I have abnormally high testosterone levels also (possibly this has played a part on the high E2 through aromatisation). I have had my blood tested 12 times in the last 6 weeks (I live in Vietnam and it is dirt cheap and the results are ready the following morning) and every single time my T levels are >1500ng/dL (off the scale).

I have scoured the internet to try and find out the reason why but cannot find anything AT ALL. I have never supplemented with T ever in my life. Recent illness has reduced my training frequency to about once a fortnight at most. I take ZMA and a bunch of other supplements (b vits, c, zinc, magnesium etc). I cannot work out what the hell is going on. I canâ??t deny that I am mega happy about the scenario and when my E2 levels are right I feel amazing, on top of the world but I would love to know the reason for it.
I just wish Iâ??d found out years ago before I started piling on the beef.

One last thing, I have been battling an autoimmune condition for almost 3 years and have been on and off oral corticosteroids, not sure if this could be related or not?
Any help greatly appreciatedâ?¦..

maybe testicular cancer

I would have thought if you are using an AI and no steroids your testosterone results for your bloods are going to be in the high normal range. If you go off the AI its going to go back to a more normal level.
What AI are you on? Or is it a SERM like Nolvadex?

Sorry should have said, I was taking Arimidex but it was completely ineffective. I switched to Letro and that dropped it like a stone…

Men taking 2.5 mg letrozole per day will notice that their testosterone levels duplicate and the concentration of estradiol in the blood decreases by 45 percent . Urologists at the University of Mersin, in Turkey wrote about it in " Fertility & Sterility ."

Another study in overweight men, the volunteers testosterone level quadrupled when taken weekly tablet containing 2.5 mg of letrozole. In another Canadian study, a dose of 2.5 mg per day doubled the volunteers testosterone levels…

Wow are you always that hilarious? Thanks for the study but my levels were off the charts before taking anything at all.
