TTest 24nmol/L (10-33)(doesnt feel like its high, lol)
FT 54pmol/L (60-130)
Oestradiol(i believe E2) 147 pmol/L (40-250)
DHEA 2.8 umol/L (2.2-15.5)
39 y/o male
I have been using DIM and zinc a few weeks before these tests. Doc has prescribed me dhea 50mg, Im hoping this will increase my free T but concerned it will increase E, would this happen with such a low dhea level?? Getting another run of tests in 4 weeks, my doc seemed to know/understand when i mentioned estrogen antagonists, so possibly he is open to this.
Yes I have luv handles so need to lose some weight but this has been unresponsive to low carbs and training. Quick history, have chronic fatigue syndrome( reactive ebv/glandular fever) for last 8 years and have had good improvement with antivirals, so now im trying to get back into shape and get that extra boost in well being through optimising my hormones. I still have to be careful with overdoing things or I ‘crash’ but am managing well of late, so large volumes of work like long cardio and 2 hr weight sessions are out, i have to pace myself carefully. Pre illness was an oly lifter, so not green when it comes to training, periodically have done very abbreviated training over the last 8 years to maintain some sort of strength and that retired over weight rugby player look, lol.
any advise appreciated,
