Don’t take an AI man, straight up toxic. They’re found to reduce insulin sensitivity and raise systolic BP in men. They also reduce IGF-1 and can mess with your bone density, CV health and lipids. Letting your E2 run high is MUCH better for health than lowering it with breast cancer meds that can have detrimental effects.
High T and high E2 is perfect. If you were low T and high E, that would be a completely different circumstance.
Studies are showing that low T/E2 ratio (13:1 to 15:1) is associatied with a decreased risk of cerebrovasculal disease, while elevated T/E2 ratio (i.e. high T and low E2 from “controlling” your Estrogen) is associated with in an increased risk of up to 400%. That’s why the authors of the study actually recommended for elderly people on TRT to SUPPLEMENT with exogenous E2 in order to bring that ratio down for better protection.
What dose did you go with? Maybe too high a dose?
