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?¦..
