I was on Pharm Test C for TRT for a year & off and on UGL Test E for the past year. However, I recently used some UGL Test E & had some really bad pip, which I believe to be not normal for low trt doses. I have also noticed the past month or so I was low energy, so I figured I have been pinning bunk gear. So, I went and got tested & results are:
tt: 196 low
e2: 14.1 normal
lh: 0.3 Low
fsh: <0.2 Low
glucose: 100 high
**the “low” or “high” are according to LabCorp’s thresholds.
I quit taking the bunk gear & ordered some new UGL gear from a different source. So far no pip, so this is better than the last batch. I know pharm gear is best, but I lost some income and can’t afford $400 for 10ml of Pharm Test C (which is what my trt doc sells it for) + $230 for 23 pins of HCG. So, I have went on UGL gear for the time being & have been off of the HCG for about 2 mo’s. I feel fine except getting tired more cuz the low t setting in. Now, I’m a bit concerned about the LH, FSH & glucose levels. LabCorp says glucose threshold is 65-99, but I’ve seen posts on here about the high end being 140. Also, labs were done in the morning, about an hour after eating breakfast (ate at 9am, labs at 10:30am), so not sure if I should be concerned about glucose or not. My questions are:
- are there any health risks I should be concerned about with LH & FSH levels so low?
- is 100 glucose in morning ok?
- how long should I wait for next labs? I was thinking about doing a double dose 200mg this week to jumpstart my T & testing again a week after that…or should I wait a full month?
- are there any health risks or issues that could come about from HCG use 250iu 2x/wk?
- I’ve been getting lab’s through online lab companies & saving $ in the process, is there any way to get pharm Test C this way?
