Need Help with Lab Results!


#1

So I’m new to the forums and need some advice. I’ve been on TRT for about a year now. I feel better than I did pre TRT but not great. Still feeling lethargic and have absolutely no sex drive. Lastly, no matter how hard I diet or count my macros…I can not lose fat.

My current protocol:

Test cyp: 50mg every 3 days
HCG (pharm): 250iu every 3 days
Arimidex(pharm): .25mg EOD

Can someone look over my labs and see what’s wrong with this protocol and what I may need to change to start feeling better?

Attached is my most recent labs

DHT is surprisingly low for your T levels. Are you on Propecia? T and E levels are good. Keep an eye on hematocrit, it’s creeping up and you may need to donate blood. Not sure why your libido would be low other than low DHT.


#3

No I am not propecia. My DHT has always been on the low end ever since I started DHT. Would maybe increasing my T or HCG dose raise DHT? I think that could be the main culprit for my sex drive.


#4

More T may take hematocrit too high.

E2 target is E2=22pg/ml

Increase Arimidex by a factor of 30/22
Judge results in 6-10 days.
If you increase T, you will need to increase Arimidex/anastrozole by the same factor.
