New to Forums and TRT


#1

I’ve been on Androgel for @ 3 months now. My T has gone up to normal levels now. I also have Hypothyroidism. When I had my first follow up lab with my endo they only checked TSH, T3, Total Test, and free Test. They said everything is normal. I’m starting to worrie that I should be checking other stuff. But it is all so confusing. I have a bunch of new acne on shoulders, back, and belly. I still feel pretty close to the same as pre TRT. Any advice?

Sounds like your E2 is out of range, good luck convincing your doctor to check E2, he will probably refuse. Sounds like an mindless HMO doctor.

Your experience sounds similar to my own.

Have you read all the stickies made by KSMan at the beginning of this forum? Too much valuable info to ignore. Help educate you in what to talk to your dr about.

We need a lot more info about you:

  • age
  • height
  • weight
  • waist size
  • medications Rx and OTC
  • health issues and history

Post lab work, all of it, with lab ranges in list format.

Labs:

  • TT
  • FT
  • E2
  • prolactin if <35
  • PSA if >40
  • CBC
  • TSH
  • fT3
  • fT4 (please not T3, T4 or indexes etc)

Thyroid:

  • problems may be a result of not using iodizes salt and/or vitamins listing iodine+selenium. Please provide details and history.
  • lab normals are very useless as the ranges are stupid
  • eval overall thyroid function via oral body temps - see below

Low thyroid function can drive most of the same symptoms as low=T plus feeling cold, dry skin, generalized hair thinning, sparse outer eybrows, mood and libido issues.

Most docs are very useless at TRT and thyroid issues. You need to learn these things in self-defense. You cannot be passive.

I’m not exactly sure what a sticky is and where to read it.
