You are low in every sense of the word, low E, low LH, low FSH, low TT and low FT. However your SHBG levels is midrange which bodes well for you and will be a factor in how well you respond to TRT. We see guys all day long with SHBG levels either too high or too low and this can make TRT challenging, for you twice weekly injections will produce good results.
Beware most doctors have cookie cutter protocols that are designed for everyone, unfortunately everyone is different with varying levels of SHBG and nothing affects how often one should inject more than SHBG. Your doctor should have you injecting T 50mg twice weekly because injecting once weekly creates peaks and lows, towards the end of the week your levels are lower than they were at the start.
We also see guys who have undiagnosed thyroid issues and for TRT to work your thyroid hormones must be optimal. You may have hyperthyroidism as your fT3 is above range and your doctor is failing you. High fT3 can mimic low T symptoms such as weakness, and fatigue. For TRT work your thyroid have optimal thyroid hormones, fT4 and fT3 should be midrange. This might be why TRT isn’t working!
Nobody injects 2.5mL of anything as it’s just too much T for anyone to handle. Example I inject from a vial 10mL 100mg and I inject (.2mL) 20mg every other day do to my lower SHBG. If your dose is too high or too low you will feel little benefit. Where are you labs post-TRT?
