My Endo is insisting on peak and trough testing to try and determine if my dosage needs to be changed.
I’ve been on TRT (200mg/ml every 2 weeks, split into 2 .25ml doses per week SC) for the past 2 months. I’ve had to “go it alone” because the Endo will not allow SC, only IM injections.
I’m concerned that my dosing schedule is going to screw up the tests as he is expecting levels related to 200mg IM every 2 weeks. These results will dictate whether my dosage is changed.
How should I dose to give a more “correct” result for the Endo? Something on par for what he expects.
The peak test is supposed to be 1 week after my next “prescribed” dose of 200mg. The trough test is 1 week after that (before my next dose).
I know this may be confusing, but I really appreciate your time.
