Just got my labwork back…hematocrit sitting at 56%. I donate blood about every 8 weeks. I quit taking HCG, try and limit Iron fortified foods, etc. Another concern is I routinely fly international for work every 3 months. Roughly a 15 hour flight. My test dose is standart 100mg divided over 2 doses weekly.
Another concern. Estradiol was less than 25. Has been as low as 6. I only take 0.5mg arimidex with injections on Monday. Labs drawn were 1 week post last arimidex. Clearly an over responder. Ugh.
I see my endo tomorrow 4/20. Should I see if therapeutic phlebotomy is an option. Or just say screw it and go off trt altogether and do a PCT/HPTA reboot. I have been on TRT 4 years.
Lastly my total testoerone came back at 485 this last draw (which was done on 4/17 with the HCT and E2). Was hoping for more in 600’s. I am 45 years young. Obviously I need HCG boost but honestly afraid of that HCT number. Being 56% can also be why I am fatigued at times, but again E2 and sub 500 testosterone may also be contributing to that.
Any input from someone with similar experince would help alleviate some concern and give me something to mull as far as solutions.
