Thanks for the reply KS, appreciated. Here in australia we only get so many free lab tests a year but now on T i may need to pay for a few ( further hormone tests i will probably just stick to total and free T and E3 for now). I have had low freeT for awhile now but have held off until other issues have been treated, cmv virus and low nk function(not numbers) we have treated the adrenal fatigue/ dysfunction with preg and dhea which were low, but fixing these hormones had little impact on my T. I also initially had high E2 and have managed to get this down after losing about 20kg. I will just post my labs i think? 42 y/o male 6ft1 115kg.
TotalT 16.7 (10-33)
FreeT 35.2 (60-130)
dhea 5.8 (2.2-15.7) after these labs i have increased dhea from 25mg once a day to 25mg twice a day.
E2 73 (40-250) this was in the 150s before weightloss and as high as 201 on dhea, losing 20kg of fat has helped??
Progesterone 1 (<3)
cortisol not tested this time but morning cortisol in mid range, maybe worth increasing pregnenolone more??
Prior to this test was on dhea 25mg, pregnenolone cream 50mg. I am on antivirals, antibiotics and immune modulators for my immune issues as well as a variety of antioxidants.
Increasing my T i hope to increase my functionality that bit more??
