To start, I am a 27 year old male. 5’10 200 lbs. I am overweight and I work night shift and I work 64 hours a week. Several days a week I only get 4-5 hours of sleep because of work. I started TRT a little less than 3 months ago.
I have read about all the different blood works I need, but when I brought up some of them to my DR he dismissed them as unneeded. I know, I know, I should get a new DR. But, this DR is an endocrinologist and he prescribed me 100mg Test C a week right off the bat and lets me inject myself at home. I requested E2 and other stuff tested but he kind of brushed it off. Maybe if I push harder he will do it next time. What else needs to be tested?
I will first post my bloodwork from before I started TRT, about 3 months ago.
Testosterone Total: 309ng/dl
Free Test: 65.9 pg/ml (from a range of 35-155)
Prolactin: 7.6 ng/ml
TSH: 2.5 mlu/l
Now, after 3 months on 100mg a week of Test C
LH: <0.2L (range 1.5-9.3 mlu/ml) - seems very low, but was not included in my initial blood work to compare before and after. (He did not retest Free T or TSH)
Prolactin: 12.1 ng/ml
Testosterone Total: 299 ng/dl
I have blood work/ urine work from before and after for: comprehensive metabolic panel and CBC. I just don’t know what is important and there are a lot of results, I can provide if needed.
On my comprehensive metabolic panel I noticed I was out of range on: Carbon Dioxide: 32. (on a range of 20-31)
Once again, I apologize for not having more blood work. Let me know what I really need to ask him to test for next time. And what is going on with that massively low LH level?
