Hey KSman, I recently updated my log and I was wondering if you could take a look. Thanks!

Good Morning,

New lab results and the doctor wants to try ZRT blood spot testing. When you have a second can you see my last post and see if anything stands out or if you have comments? Thanks

hey I am in the Kansas City Kansas area, I tested 109 ng/dg TT ad 2.5 for serum test. I am 23 yold. My doctor tells me I need an MRI to look at my pituatary but my prolactin is 6.5 1 and my TSH is 0.81. I did not get free t3 or t4 tested (it did not occur to me at the time) but my t4 is showing as 8.4. I think I can rule out thyroid issues? Since my prolactin is showing as normal do I need this MRI? I’m a young guy so this has me worried.

I have been away and will try to catch up.

Chubby: You need your own thread with your labs there and other things as per the advice for new guys sticky. You are young, but need to learn as much, or more as the older guys here. Read the stickies. There is a lot to get through and that takes time. Docs are mostly useless, so you need to take charge of your own health care; you cannot be passive.

Your doc is on the right track, there are issues that affect the pituitary that do not involve prolactin. Read that sticky. Create your thread and from here, provide links back to that. I can meet you in 66047for beer and food. PM’s disabled on this site ;(

Thyroid function: Body temps are the bottom line, see thyroid basics sticky and post in your own thread.

Ksman- I’d love to buy you a beer and a meal if you could help me out. My doctor just lost his license for sexually abusing patients, possibly including myself during my teen years (not sure if what he was doing was medically necessary). Now I’m in need of a new doc and advice. I’m in Roeland Park/KCK.

Anyone else that has advice on TRT docs in this area can contact me as well.

Depends on how deep your pockets are. I do not know of a GP who does this who will take BCBSKS.

If you aren’t working too hard i finally got the results from capillary blood testing versus venous. Very interesting results (sky high) that now leave me scratching my head…

KSman,
If you get a chance, could you take a look at the most recent information listed in the thread regarding my wife’s hormones?

Thanks so much. We really appreciate what you do for us here on the T-Nation forums.


#294

Hey KSman, I updated my thread with new bloodwork. Could you please take a look > http://tnation.T-Nation.com/free_online_forum/sports_training_performance_bodybuilding_trt/got_blood_tests_please_help

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!

I noticed back in February you said you was stopping your AI for a while because it was very low at the same dose you had always been on. Seems that your DR said some guys get to the point they don’t need it anymore. How are you doing now?

The reason I asked is I have stopped Anastrozole for 12 days now minus taking .25mg one day to see if side effects returned, which they did. I have been feeling fine so far. If you are having good luck without an AI I might give it a try before trying another AI.

I cut back to 2 drops EOD and after couple of months I noted that I was getting too emotional, so I have gone to 4 drops. No current labs to see where that has taken me, just going by how I feel. So that is not very useful. My brother has had to cut back as well, so there is a family pattern to this. In any case, the labs plus calculations will get one back on target if the current labs are in reportable range. So in that regard, things can proceed normally.

I am not yet convinced that my Doc’s suggestion has merit, seems hard to believe. But perhaps he did not have a 22pg/ml target in mind. Because I was getting emotional, one can assume just on that that I still need it. Getting choked up watching a movie is not comfortable for me.

But man, it was the movie Beaches!
