I am 48 yr old male at 6’2", 240 lbs. I recently went to my doctor regarding symptoms of low Test including depressed attitude, sex drive, etc. He ordered a blood test which came back as:
Sex Hormone Binding Globulin 26.0 range nmol/L 13.0-71.0
Testosterone 11.60 range nmol/L 5.80-28.00
Free Androgen Index 43.9 no range given. Free testosterone is no longer avaiable and has been replaced with Free Androgen Index which is a better measure of the bio-availablity of testosterone, says the report.
Unfortunately, he did not order the estradiol bloodwork. He did feel the Test level was at about average for the range. As a starting point he has me on Test E (Delatestry 200mg/ml) at 1ml/month injection. Started the first shot Friday May 22, self injection. My next appointment is Sept. My questions are can the injections be more frequent with less volume such as .5ml/2weeks, or .25ml/week? Is there a concern with the peaks and valleys of a once/month injection? Would such a small amount/week be as effective? Even though it is a low dose of Test, I was considering going to a small dose of an AI. Is that a benefit considering the circumstances? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated..
