Hey guys just looking for some overall opinions on my labs & protocol.
I’ve also been on finasteride for about 3 years now 1mg every other day.
Saw a naturopathic doctor for constant joint / tendon inflammation issues… which led us to do a full lab panel that indicated that my hormones weren’t optimal for someone my age (27).
He suggested we try putting me on HCG 500iu 3x week + 0.25mg arimidex 1x week.
He wanted to try some thyroid medication as well but i decided to hold off for now and see how this does.
Labs were as follows…
Free Testosterone (ng/dL) 9.96
Testosterone (ng/dL) 556
Dihydrotestosterone (ng/dL) 13 L
