Got my labs.
T total 5.09 (2.49 - 8.36) - down from 5.51
T free 2.4 (8.3 - 40.1) - down from 7.09
estradiol 12 (9 - 62) - down from 15
SHBG 34.90 (18.3 - 54.1) - down from 42.40
VitD 35.4 (> 30) - up from 17.8
Vitamin D supplementation has worked, now back in normal range. SHBG has decreased, most likely due to ditching IF and Keto.
However, free T is absolutely non existent. Only explanation I can think of is the subcutaneous injection having zero effect on me. What is surprising is that I don’t feel awful or anything. I have zero libido, I’m a bit numb but not depressed, energy is alright, I can train fine, I sleep fine.
I have switched to IM, hopefully it will work.
Reduced cialis to 2.5, side effects greatly diminished but didn’t completely vanish, presence of a faint headache.
