I'm a bit confused on Estradiol targets. I just had my second adjustment, and my numbers have definitely improved, but the Dr made some slight adjustments. Wanted to ask a couple of questions here for sanity checks...
Here are my latest labs (12 weeks in):
Total Test: 925 (Ref 250-1100)
Free Test: 219 (Ref 46-224)
Bio Test: 451 (Ref 110-575)
SHBG: 19 (Ref 10-50)
Serum Albumin: 4.5 (Ref 3.6-5.1)
Estradiol: 29 (Ref <=29)
Estradiol, Free: .64 [H] (Ref: <= .45)
My Regimen to achieve these numbers was the following:
Test Cypionate: 70 mg on Monday and Thursday
HCG: 250 IU Monday and Thursday
Anestrazole: .5 mg three times per week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday)
Modifications the doctor had me make for next 6 weeks:
Test Cypionate: 70 mg every 4th day
HCG: 250 IU every 4th day
Anestrazole: 1 mg every 4th day
2 questions here (and would love any other feedback!)
1. I know the Estradiol target is 22... is that the top measurement, or is it .22 with the Free Estradiol? I'm confused here.. when I inquired about it with the Dr, he simply stated the free was the important one.
2. Would it be better to do .5mg of the AI EOD rather then 1 mg 2x/week. Seems that would spike the estrogen inhibitor only on days of the shots. Just curious as to what you guys think...
As always, thank you!
