Hello, I have been on trt for about two years. Started with patches and am now injecting 1ML cyp test a week.
I never really felt that trt was working as well as it should be. The VA is my health care provider, and while they provide the test script they really are no help after you are in reference range.
So I payed out of pocket for testosterone free,total and estradiol. With the following results.
Total test 860 with a reference range of 348-1197 ng/dl
Free test 41.3 with a reference range of 6.8-21.5 pg/ml
Estradiol 56.8 With a reference range of 7.6-42.6 pg/ml
I am looking for suggestions on what my next steps should be. Estradiol is high, should I use LIQUIDEX to bring it down?
I know that more blood test are going to be needed but I am on a limited budget and I know that the VA isnt going to prescribe HGH or Arimidex or for that matter anything other than Test.
49 inch waist
Body hair is normal, no balding
I carry fat around abdomen, chest
type 2 diabetes
RX SERTRALINE, Statin discontinued
Diet is low carb high kcal
Training is upper lower w/ additional day for back.
Testes did ache when I started injections, but has passed. Maybe a little softer, but no size change.
No morning wood or nocturnal erections before trt treatment or after.
Thank you in advance, if more info is needed I'll post it up.
