Labs from the summer, been steady at similar numbers for years on same protocol.
TT= 1026 (this number can be anywhere 900-1000 depending on when I do my shot in relation to labs)
CBC, Hematocrit 50.7
(these have been high for YEARS, but other markers for my liver are perfectly healthy -cannot recall what the doc pointed to on the lab- so a few docs have told me its likely because I am usually lifting 4 days week and that will jack these numbers up)
Cortisol (9:45am)= 18.4
Total cholesterol = 175
Test 150mg week
GH 2iu daily bedtime
HCG 250iu 3x week
Adex 1mg 3x week
I am a big fan of fish oil, take it 2-3 times a day 4 caps Flameout in morning and 2 teaspoons of liquid orange with super high concentrations of DHA/EPA in evening
Libido and energy has been down in past year or more but I am coming off basically few years of hard core stress and lack of any conditioning. Sleeping is same, actually doing better than when in the storm of the stress. Weight is steady, has been steady for all the years I've been on HRT, even with the stress the weight stays same its just my BF will fluctuate up or down. Right now currently 11% BF via DEXA scan which I was told is the most accurate way to do it currently (and usually reads higher than other methods).
No headaches at all ever, no skin changes, no blood pounding in the head at all either. I just feel out of shape, but I actually am! Ha...with no conditioning for nearly 3 years and in my early 40s, with seriously high major life stress, I assume that its pretty normal to not feel as chipper in the gym.
I have high BP in family, and mine has been borderline since my 20s even when I was super fit cardiovascular wise. Then for some years it would jump up but I was having serious health issues and stress all the time. Some docs would say time to go on BP meds, but then they would test it again and say I was borderline so better not to get on if I can keep it down with diet and exercise and wait until the medical issues resolved. Now I am wondering if it is time to investigate BP meds, or see if 3 months of drastically changing my workouts to be mainly intervals and steady state, will drop down the BP and resting HR.
I just started wearing a HR monitor for workouts, when walking, and when meditating to see what it looks like. During workouts or walking around its always easily north of 100. But I do not feel terrible at all when it is, no headaches, not light headed, nada.
Last blood donation was just about two months ago so assume my RBC has not climbed super high. Was going to do this double RBC donation and then do labs again in next month or so. But now I am concerned with the high pulse I might not be able to donate. I admit I was worked up at the donation center as I thought the double RBC might be bigger needle or two needles since they said they need to filter it and then put it back in. I've always had lab coat syndrome.
