I just got blood work done. Here are the results:
Serum testosterone: 398 ng/dL (348 - 1197)
LH: 7.5 mIU/mL (1.7 - 8.6)
FSH: 5.6 mIU/mL (1.5 - 12.4)
TSH: 0.995 uIU/mL (0.450 - 4.500)
T3: 96 ng/dL (71 - 180)
T4: 6.6 ug/dL (4.5 - 12.0)
Estriadol: 18.9 pg/mL (7.6 - 42.6)
I recently switched from Andro-Gel to cypionate injections. I’m doing two shots a week (Wednesday & Sunday) at 75 mgs each, totaling 150mgs for the week. This was my first week. I’m hoping that it raises my serum testosterone levels higher than what they are now. I guess that I have to wait and see.
I’ve been told that my estriadol levels are too low. I’ve had a horrendous case of anxiety for the last five months and I believe it’s being caused by my estriadol levels. The first two months were complete torture. I couldn’t sit down, let alone get any sleep. I made many trips to the ER. It has calmed down to “tolerable” levels due to me being prescribed Gabapentin and Seroquel. Again, the anxiety is tolerable but it’s still there after five plus months. I believe my estriadol levels may have caused it.
I’ve learned that too low of estriadol levels can give the same side effects as levels being too high. Anxiety being an issue in both cases. What can I do to raise my estriadol levels or should I just wait and see if the cypionate injections will help me over time? I’ve been told supplementing DHEA and Pregnenolone may help. Is that true?
I’m new to both these forums and TRT. It seems that the more I learn, the more questions I have. Thanks in advance for any help.
