Hey guys, I am not sure if anyone remembers but a little bit ago I was posting the results from my previous bloodwork where my levels were not quite right. upon taking suggestions I ended up lowing my weekly testosterone dose and increased my arimidex dose, the results I think are much closer to maintainable but I still need some help dialing it in more.
Comparing from the previous test results to these, I think things look better but still have some questions.
Previously I was doing
.6 mg test 2x week (210 mg/ ml =250wk) (Saturday, Wednesday)
500 iu hcg 2x week (Friday, Tuesday)
.25 arimidex 2x week (Saturday, Wednesday)
The above is the results from that with a level of 1498 Testosterone, 35.1 Free and had a the test lvl of 1498 and a estradiol level of 50.2
Upon input and realizing I did not feel great and feedback saying it was not sustainable I switched the protocol to.
.5 mg test 2x week (210 mg ml = 210 wk) (Saturday, Wednesday)
250 iu hcg 2x week (Friday, Tuesday)
.5 arimidex 2x week (Saturday, Wednesday)
The results that just came back are
Test 1055, free 27.8 and estrodial 43.8
Now my questions are,
The estradiol seems to be high still, which I figured because my nipples are still sensitive not as bad as they were and it tends to range on the day but sensitive none the less. How much of an increase in arimidex should I take? It seems the extra .5 mg only reduced my estrogen around 7 points, and I also reduced the amount of test I was taking from 250 to 210 (the .6 to .5) I figured it would go down more. What is suggested I do from this point in order to get my estrogen under control?
even Pre TRT my IGF-1 was always on the higher side even with testosterone in the 200s my IGF1 was 280s with it being 361 (high) on this test is that is that a good level to sustain? I am not taking anything for it directly, Does it have any negative effects being high? I assume its good but I am not sure, it has raised since starting therapy.
Also a third question,
3. I have always had a higher A/G ratio, usually its 1 point over or 2 but now it seems to be creeping up. Is this something to be of concern? Is there something in my diet I should change to help get this within range or what has effect on this?
Thanks guys, I think between the last feedback and this one hopefully I will be good to go, I feel a lot better then I did with the previous results of 1500 and 50 so I hope to continue to just dial this in and get it to a long term sustainable level.
