Hi, newbie poster here. I’m a 29yr old male and I’ve been on TRT for 4 months. 200mg cyp once every two weeks. My morning test before starting TRT was in the low to mid 200’s. I have not noticed ZERO changes in libido (main concern.)
My first blood test since starting TRT taken on the day of injection (b4 injecting)
I have hypothyroidism and take Synthroid 75mcg everyday to keep it in check.
Estradiol- 19.1 pg/mL (Range 7.6 - 42.6 pg/mL)
SHBG- 10.7 nmol/L ( Range 14.5 - 48.4 nmol/L)
TESTOSTERONE (ESOTERIX)- 390 ng/dL (Range 348 - 1197)
FREE TEST (ESOTERIX)- 140 pg/mL (Range 52 - 280)
% FREE TESTO- 3.6 % (Range 1.5 - 3.2)
PROLACTIN- 16.27 ng/mL (Range 4.0 - 15.2 ng/mL)
TSH- 1.540 uIU/mL (Range 0.450 - 4.500 uIU/mL)
THYROXINE,FREE 1.60 ng/dL (Range 0.82 - 1.77 ng/dL)
My big concern is that I have low SHBG, and I have read that those with low SHBG don’t really respond well to TRT. Are there any red flag lab values that may be causing me to not respond to TRT? any help or suggestion would help. Thanks!
