Pre-TRT labs when starting about 4 weeks ago:
Estradiol: 53.9 pg/ml RANGE: 7.6−42.6 pg/mL
Now obviously this is high.
Estradiol Sensitive as tested by Defy Medical:
17.4 pg/ml RANGE: 8.0-35
Looks to be relatively healthy…
Now I am taking 50mg Test E E3D and believe that estrogen might have shot up… Had great energy increases almost immediately after starting TRT and am now down a bit in energy. A few insomnia symptoms I didn’t have before, feeling more emotional than usual.
I know most would respond with “go get labs” and I want to but which test do you guys rely on? Estradiol Sensitive or just estradiol?
SIDE QUESTION: I don’t want to be on an AI forever… Are there guys here who have taken an AI until you’ve gotten down to low body fat and then done something natural like grapeseed extract to maintain healthy levels of T?
