I will start by saying I have never used steroids or any type of testosterone booster before. I was diagnosed with secondary hypogonadism and was prescribed Clomid 50mg/day.
Clomid worked for testosterone levels but rose my already high Estradiol levels. So I was told to take 1mg Arimidex every other day. After two weeks of this, my results were:
Testosterone, serum: 1240 (Ref. Range: 348-1197)
Estradiol: 75.5 (Ref Range: 7.6-42.6)
After I bumped up the Arimidex to 1mg/day, my results 2 weeks after were:
Testosterone, serum: 1218 (Ref Range: 348-1197)
Estradiol: 63.3 (Ref Range: 7.6-42.6)
Then, I bumped up Arimidex to 2mg/day, my results 2 weeks after were:
Testosterone, serum: 1040 (Ref Range: 348-1197)
Estradiol: 50 (Ref Range: 7.6-42.6)
LH, FSH have been in range since treatment.
As you can see my Testosterone- Estradiol ratio is not nearly high enough. I actually feel worse now than I did before treating my low T. My doctor said he has never seen a patient be so minimally responsive to Arimidex before.
Can anyone offer insight as to why Arimidex has been so ineffective for me? I was hoping my doctor would be open to treating me with Aromasin. I just really feel that there is some underlying cause that is preventing my estradiol from being supressed. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot.
