My preliminary results are in – for some reason, Total Testosterone is not being reported yet, so I will update that later. I am going to post the actual results this time to save me from retyping.
Hematocrit is high. This high reading is a first. Everything I read is about how high hemactocrit = dehydration. But for the past 30 days, I have been serious about water intake - consuming a minimum of 2L per day of WATER (measured) – not counting anything else.
Alkaline Phosphatase was low again. I have read what I can on this and I was curious about my Vit levels because “excess ingestion of vitamin D,” was a cause of low ALP. Another is a calorie/protein deficiency which I am positive does not apply. This one has me stumped.
My DHEA-S is back “in range” after I decreased my DHEA supplement.
My aldosterone level was something I always wanted to know as a low level also causes some of the symptoms I have experienced (it is mid-range, so I can eliminate that).
This is the first Vit D test since I was tested deficient, and it is at the upper end of the range 99.7 (30-100). By the way, this test for Vit D is while I am on Danazol. There are no plans to stop Danazol again.
Estradiol took a major jump from 28 - 39.2! This is the biggest “shocker” of the test. 60 days ago I decreased my “DIM”, so I don’t know why Estradiol increased so much during this blood cycle.
I tested GH even though I know most on this board don’t place any relevance in GH testing … However, I wanted to compare it to a few years ago. Previous lab ranges were “less than 3” while LabCorp is less than 10.
And my old friend SHBG decreased slightly from 29.8 to 27.3.
A few comments:
For the past 30 days, I have felt REALLY good. Energetic, clear, with a few spontaneous chubbies here and there.
My Estradiol and SHBG have NEVER been close in numbers. Going back 10 years, I have always had low E2. Seeing it jump to 39.2 is a real surprise, especially since I feel really good.
I am still waiting on Total Testosterone and will calculate Free T once that is supplied.
I go to the doctor Monday for a pellet insertion.
As usual, any discussion is welcome
