KSman is Here

Hi KSMan,

I have some new updates and questions for you. Can you take a look again?


I was told to ask for your help, as a “heavy hitter” is needed with my case. Currently only have TT, FT, E2, LH, FSH numbers but will be updating with temperature and thyroid lab when I have them. Thanks in advance for any help.

KSMan, I have updated my post with temperatures as you instructed. They only cover the last 24 hours, but I will continue taking temps and updating. Any insight you have on my findings would be very much appreciated. The link is in the post immediately above this one.

KSman, please take a look at my 12 week labs if you get a chance, Thanks I think I’m getting a good understanding of things

Hi KSman, thanks for your reply…I have very interesting lab results and comments regarding the excessive aromatisation I experience (even under AI)…please take a look my friend and tell me what you think…regards and thanks in advance…

Hi KSman, I’ve updated my thread with a new lab and had an unexpected drop in Total Test.

Any feedback is much appreciated. Thanks!

Curious as to your opinion. At what do you believe a HPTA restart is probably a waste of time to retain youthful levels, not just satisfactory barely above the normal levels. 35? 40?


thanks buddy

Depends in part on ones FT and TT levels relative to LH/FSH.
At the age ranges that you are considering, it is not a clear situation.
If the top end of the HPTA is stalled, one can try a restart.

Start with a SERM, not high dose, Nolvadex preferred by me, Clomid is OK if it does not drive you crazy.

Check LH/FSH, TT, FT and E2 after 4 weeks. If you feel a lot better, wait longer as thing are working.

If LH/FSH are still low, top end of HPTA is broken, stop and start T+AI+hCG.

If LH/FSH are good but T levels are poor, testes are not good enough, start T+AI+hCG.

LH/FSH and T levels are good, slowly taper off of SERM.

Use anastrozole throughout to keep E2 in lower 20’s and when tapering off of SERM, cruise on anastrozole at around 0.5mg/week.

Hi KSman,

I have a stretch of body temperature measurements that may help with my case, plus some questions, if you could take a look I would really appreciate,


Question for you on nolva http://tnation.T-Nation.com/free_online_forum/sports_training_performance_bodybuilding_trt/1_year_of_trt

Hi KSamn,

Please, let me know what you think of my updated labs:

Thanks again.

Update in mine. Cheers KSMan :slight_smile:

Please help. Super AI over-responder, potassium, bun/creatinine ratio problems

Hope that link works. not sure what the best way is.



Hi KSMan,

I’m getting close to 1 g. total IR and have a couple of new updates for you. Can you take a look please?


I have seen this before. With young boys who have lots of testosterone early, they can end up short and stocky. It would be a tricky thing for a doc as he would have to guess that stature would be low and intervene with anastrozole and in the end he/she would still not know if stature would have been shorter. I don’t think that insurance would want to be involved. A study would have to be done, and very costly with multi-year involvement and placebos. But that is never done for an off-patent drug, no profit motive.

Updated thread:



having a nipple issue, if you could please advise:

hey KSMan I have all new full blood panel for you to look at :slight_smile:

I seem to have a massive issue with my thyroid though as you will see from my new numbers…
