IGF-1 is a measure of your GH status. You are GH deficient.
How old are you?
I am taking TRT "test-E (Cidoteston 200mg" every 10 days " and .25 Arimidex EOD " " I started Arimidex only lately only for past 5 weeks"
That is not good as T levels go very high then decrease. Your lab results are then mostly determined by your lab timing.
You need to self-inject T twice a week and take anastrozole at that time.
Anastrozole needs to match T levels and if T levels are changing a lot, anastrozole dose is not right and E2 levels will be moving too.
Fasting glucose? - 106, indicating a small problem
Fasting cholesterol? - high
Blood pressure OK?
Do you take Vit-D3? 5000iu/day suggested.
Have you been sick or had an infection?
