T Nation

Lab Help Please

Hello, I am not new to this website but this is the first time I’m asking a question so please bear with me. I want to sum this up quickly to save you guys time. I’m 48 and was diagnosed with TRT in April I know you have stickeys for new guys but I’m still confused on what blood test to get.

I’m very certain I have high E2 as water weight is an issue and muscle building is slow to none and I work out 4-5 night a week, I also have issues with being tired and have some signs of anxiety. I only have one lab I can go to and they have so many different test I wanted to get your advice on what to get?

Just the basics and the important ones, I will pay for this myself as my DR doesn’t believe that high estrogen is causing my issues he thinks its all in my head. Any help would be great
