Years on TRT: 1
Years training: 4
Current protocol: 2mL Nebido/ 5 weeks
I need help interpreting my latest results and advice moving forward since I’m on my endocrinologist doens’t know what she’s doing.
Suicidal depressive and low energy for all of my adult life, misdiagnosed hypothyroidism, given a myriad of SSRI’s, I took my path of trying to find whats wrong with me and found anendo who would give me TRT. It seems to be a taboo here.
My levels were low and I was hoping this would be a magic bullet to actually live a decent life.
Anyway, a year in not much has changed. Energy is slightly up, and I’m looking leaner from fasting a lot, but thats it. Still majorly depressive.
I’ve had to request and pay for my own specific blood tests to monitor my TRT since the labs and my doctor are content with only knowing and working off my total testosterone levels. So I’ve realised my doc doesn’t really know what she’s doing.
Latest results are attached. I’ve requested also reverse T3, bioavailable testosterone, DHT, just in case those are needed also.
Input on interpreting these would be appreciated.
So my T levels are over the max range, but so are my Estradiol levels. From my rudimentary knowledge of how this works, I’m not reaping any benefits of the TRT because its all bound. Is that correct?
Options for Nebido alternatives are limited here in Europe/Ireland, and its also difficult to find a doctor who will prescribe it since the system is backwards.
So what are my options? How do I treat the Estrogen levels so that the TRT actually works?
Was it a mistake getting on TRT? Would there be any benefit in stopping it with a post cycle therapy?
I believe my thyroid is probably at fault, but no doctor has probably diagnosed anything wrong with it so I won’t have much luck here. I’m moving to the UK next year, would I have better luck finding a doc who knows what they’re doing over there?
