So quick back story, I was being treated by Male Medical (MM). Their initial blood panel was via something called “FastPack Testo” - anyone ever heard of it? The result was a single number, rather than the 3 numbers I’ve seen most report, and it came back at 60.8 ng/dl. They started me at 200mg test 1X/week with 250iu HCG 2X/wk, and I felt awesome. I immediately gained back a lot of my lost muscle mass (7lb), leaned out and looked better than I had, ever, really. I had energy again, I no longer felt like I needed a nap at 3:00 every day. I no longer dreaded the gym. Then I started to have sore nipples after 4 weeks, and they ran bloods.
They said my test was too high and dropped me to 175 and put me on Arimidex 1X/week. I still felt good, but not as good as the first 4 weeks. The sore nips went away and things felt pretty good. Then at the 90 day mark, they ran bloods again and said my test was too high (blood taken on day 7 after previous injections), and dropped me to 150mg. I definitely don’t feel anywhere near as good as I did on 200. Some of my belly fat has come back. Lost 2-3 pounds, get tired again around 4-5 in the afternoons.
However, my last blood draw from them, they said I was on the high side or normal. I have had recent concern with elevated heart rate and MM not wanting to run bloods because it “wasn’t time yet, and my last tests showed no reason for concern.” I wanted to switch my treatment over to a local Urologist, and they ran bloods and had me do a semen analysis to make sure the HCG is working and I can still have kids, since I’m only 34. This was supposed to be a precursor to determine if current regimen is working before they take over. The below blood panel has been 4 weeks ago now and they still haven’t taken on my treatment, but that’s another story - typical medical industry not listening to the patient and documenting things and can’t get a fucking doctor to call me back - so basically done all these tests for nothing at this point.
So I’m still on a 150/wk dose with HCG 250iu 2X/week with MM. The only thing that has come out of my recent bloodwork with the Urology office is they called me to tell me to quit taking the Arimidex due to the Estadiol levels. Keep in mind, this panel was done about 36 hours after my weekly injections at MM.
I’m not sure this is the entire panel and may not tell the whole story. I’m waiting on a follow-up.
