I’m sorry if my English is very bad.
I’m looking for your advice .
I’m 44 years old .Last two years I have problem with my mood and my sex drive is down.I read this forum a lot and I can recognize symptoms you are experiencing .I think ESTRADIOL -17 BETA is scientific name for E2 and what I see in my blood test is frightening me .TESTOSTERONE also in the lower range .
I can’t convince my doctor to test my SHBG . I’ve changed 2 doctors and here in Canada this is maximum I can do in one year .
Here is my blood test result I’ve got today:
TESTOSTERONE - 16.5 nmol/L (8.4-28.7)
FREE TESTOSTERONE -40.2 PMOL/L (25.0-80.0)
FSH -3 IU/L (2-8)
LH - 4 IU/L (2-6)
ESTRADIOL -17 BETA -127 pmol/L (43-151)
TOTAL PROLACTIN -6 ug/L (2-18)
FREE THYROXINE -16 pmol/L (9-23)
THYROTROPIN -1.65 mIU/L (0.35-5.00)
TOTAL PSA -1.49 ug/L (0.00-4.00)
LDL -3.26 nmol/L
TRIGLYCERIDES -2.08 nmol/L
AST -21 U/L (7-37)
ALT -26 U/L (12-49)
CHOLESTEROL - 5.15 nmol/L
GLUCOSE-FASTING -5.3 nmol/L (3.6-6.0)
HbA1C - 0.057 (0.040-0.060)
I’m considering to start HSG + arimidex therapy .There is no way my doctor give me testosterone injections…She already told that my testosterone in good range and I don’t need to worry about my estradiol…
I’ve ordered online HCG (5000X3) and arimidex (1mgX14).I don’t drink alcohol .Yes I’m overweight BF is about 23% .4 years ago I was 118 kg and now my weight is 100 kg. Most of BF is accumulated in stomach area and I can’t loose that fat .I’m eating clean and I’m cooking myself . I have no liver problem as far as I know and I’m not using any Rx or OTC drugs.
Only supplements : Vitamin C ,B-50,B-12,Saw Palmetto ,Zinc , Panax Ginseng, Ginkgo Biloba ,Horny Goat Weed ,multivitamin ,probiotics
There is no diabetes in my family.
I need advice what could be the dosage (protocol) for HCG and arimidex to start.
