#41

Estradiol was in the 20’s but then your tests states that E2 SERUM was less than 5. How are they relative?


#42

Right I measured both eia and lcms. E2 on lab ls LCMS assay.


#43

@charlie12 no I understand. I’m just confirming. I worry about you changing much since you feel good right now besides slight joint pain. I really think your levels are good.

Edit. If anything like I said I’d bump your t up slightly.


#44

Please check my full labs from 10/22. Curious about my iron and ferritin too. Thanks.
@physioLojik


#45

@charlie12 what drugs are you using currently? I see slightly elevated prolactin. How is your general sense of motivation?

Don’t worry about your iron / fer at this point.


#46

I have energy . Libido good. Want sex everyday.
Motivation good to. With the lower e2 btw my penile sensation is awesome. So easily aroused

I take allopurinol 300 mg daily, 5 mg Cialis , 20 mg zinc picolinate, 200 mg magnesium glycinate at night . Multi vitamin. Occasional 500 mg vit c. Several days warm lemon water. And citrucel tabs for constipation @physioLojik
Am at Kalahari now with family and doing all the stuff with the kids . Fun time. Am 41 and beat them up the flights of stairs to get in the rides. Lol

Also the report was amended with these 2 test that they forgot to run.

CORTISOL, RANDOM 13.1 2.5-25.0 ug/dL
IGF-I (SOMATOMEDIN-C) 222 H 43-209 ng/mL

My igf was like 228 a few months ago.

What are the symptoms of high prolactin? Does tren cause it to be elevated?


#48

@physioLojik I responded to your questions above. I Don’t want to lose you…:grinning:


#49

Sorry to jump on your thread but saw @physioLojik was on and responding and had to ask a question. My doc said something that had me questioning him to myself and wanted to know if there was any legitimacy to what he said. I’m on a cream and little over four weeks ago my total T was around 1000, four weeks later I dropped to somewhere in 500’s. He wants me to take saw palmetto thinking I am converting T into DHT and that could be lowering my total so wants to lower the conversion rate. Does it even work that way? I didn’t think it did so hoping you could share some knowledge on it with me.


#50

He’s like Batman bro…here then gone!!! Lol

Just another thought to add to your well laid out advice…you mentioned that you take a multi as well…for curiosities sake, how much B-12 is in that multi?


#51

It’s just strange. Had to be something I added recently. Unless I reached hemostasis after 11 months.


#52

There is a thread in Pharma, where you can specifically ask him questions.


#53

Thanks that’s good to know


#54

This is nothing about physio, but I thought I’d link this because it’s funny


#55

Yeah that’s not too high on the B-12, if that’s the only source you take supplement wise. My multi has like 5000%DV of B-12. I wound up dropping it because I get plenty B-12 with my C4 preworkout.

Just checking to see if there was a correlation there…


#56

@alphagunner in your opinion do you think I should keep dosage the same and stop lemon and zinc?

I just don’t want to be in a situation that my e2 goes up if I make to many changes


#57

Even if it goes up a little its not the end of the world. I would stop all e2 control. maybe go up a little on test like physio said.

Whats your protocol right now?


#58

44 mg 2x a week.


#59

Was 50 twice a week too much? Your on the lower end of SHBG if I remember.


#60

The 50 or 44 normally had my e2 in the 30s. So I I just did 44 to keep e2 in check.
My shbg is currently 26. Was in mid 30s. B4 that mid 20s.
