Started TRT 90 days ago and was comparing blood work. The stats and regiment is as follows:
55yo male 5’11 175lbs
Blood Pressure (current) = 125/73 during the workday, 90/61 in the evening
Resting Pulse - 72
Workout 4x/week push-pull split
Test Cyp/Anastrozole 200mg/.5mg/ml - Compounded 1x/week
.5ml/HCG 2x - 1x after Test injection, then another 3.5 days later
Labs 0 days, 90 days
Total Test 351, >1500 ng/dL
Estradiol 13.9, 23.4 pg/mL
LH 7.6, —
Creatinine 1.37, 1.57 mg/dL
WBC 4.6, 6.0 K/CMM
RBC 5.09, 5.56 M/uL
Hemoglobin 14.8, 16 g/dL
Hematocrit 43.7, 47.8 %
Platlets 275, 247 k/uL
PSA - ran between 2.5 - 3.27 ng/mL over the past 5 years, at 0 days it was 2.5, 3.3 most recently
Included the labs results that seem to have changed the most. The Dr. dropped the Anastrozole from 1.0mg/ml to .5mg/ml before the 90 day blood test. Would have thought he would want to see the PSA and Estradiol before changing it…? Said he wanted it below 40, so was ok.
Said he was OK with Total Test >1500 if I’m have not sides or problems…wondering what Free T is?
But blood work was not run to look at Free T or SHBG, LH
Basically feel good, no side effects other than a little oily skin. Does it make sense to try and optimize Free T to help with lean muscle growth? and how would I look at the relationship with Estradiol vs. the current levels.
Any feedback, red flags, advice, etc… is welcome…always interested in knowing what I don’t know!
