So a few weeks ago, posted about my use of Tren and that led to a discussion with some board members about my cruising levels of a gram a week being way too high. I took their comments to heart and had some bloodwork done. I was skeptical at first that it was “too high” but they were right.
Stats: 51 years old, 180 lbs, 5’7" about 15% BF
I kept it limited to total test, free test, prolactin and estrodiol. As you will see, they were right. I am going to start tapering right away and retest.
- Total Testosterone , LC/MS = 5383 ng/dL
- Free Testosterone (Direct) = >50 pg/mL
- Prolactin = 21.8 ng/mL Range is 4 - 15.2
- Estrodiol = 143.6 pg/mL Range is 7.6 - 42.6
Note: Roche ECLIA methodology
Information released to FDA by different reagent manufactures has identified cross reactivity between Fulvestrant, a drug used in the treatment of metastatic breast cancer, and immunoassays; leading to falsely elevated estradiol results. Any patient known to be on a Fulvestrant regimen can be tested for Estradiol using LabCorp assay "Estradiol, Sensitive (LC/MS) test number 140244’ which does not exhibit Fulvestrant interference.
Basically my Nolvadex is causing a false estrodioll reading and i need to get retested.
