I’m 54 years old, and live in Thailand- I’ve been lifting for most of my life. I had a blood test about 10 months ago, where my natural level was 430ng/dL (I don’t have the breakdown past that, only the base number)- hoping to raise it to the ~800 level, I went on 125mg T enanthate (Bayer brand 1ml ampoules) weekly, divided into two weekly 62.5mg sub-Q doses. Hoping to heal a chest injury, three months ago I added 100mg nandrolone decanoate weekly (also divided over 2 sub-Q doses- it seems to have helped- my injury healed and my joints feel great, even at such a small dose). I have not been doing this under a doctor’s supervision- TRT isn’t very big here, and there’s not much knowledge regarding it.
I had another blood test on Monday (same lab- this was two days after a T shot and one day after a Deca shot) and my number came up at 2929ng/dL, which seems insanely high for the amount I’ve been taking.
I’m going to get checked again at another lab, but has anyone else had a similar experience with such a huge increase? This can’t be right- from what I’ve read, it would take at least 300mg per week to get past 1000ng/dL from my base. Maybe I got tested too close to my shots.
Any words of wisdom would be appreciated.
