I went to see my doc today.
Last lab results were:
E2: 0.18 nmol/l *Reference range high limit is 0.15.
My value roughly 48-49 pg/ml.
TT: 19 nmol/l *This is okay, nothing stellar and not bad considering.
FT: 279 pmol/l *Okay, nothing stellar and not bad either.
Lab results taken on 8th day of every 10d cycle.
I told my doctor that i'm happy with rest of the results, but i'd want to control the estradiol. He thought my estradiol value was totally fine.
He asked me what level i thought would be good? I told him i'd like to see atleast half of the current value gone. He told me he had just been on seminar in states where research had been done that found no evidence of decreased libido or ed linked to higher estradiol levels, but if they were too low there was a link. I disagreed with the high estradiol being totally ok. I told him i've seen alot of evidence from fellows in "our discussion forum" which is dedicated to TRT treatment etc.
So, he perscribed me anasztrozol ( arimidex, but it's now gone from market with that shop name, it's anastrozol stada in our country now ).
I asked about dosage, he told me to take 1mg every day.
I said that's gonna kill my Estrogen completely, he then asked how much i think i should take it? I said that total max in my case could be that 1mg per week ( i didn't tell him that it's propably too high also ).
I said i figure out something.
We agreed i test how things goes with anastrozol and now i have perscription for it. If i cannot make it work, i switch to Nebido. I think it's fair as i don't need huge spikes anyway to my testosterone levels and there's only two options, either sustanon or nebido in my country ( from injectables ). My doctor hates polypharmacy and wrote it to papers that we're heading towards that with this protocol. I can understand that well.
So, how do you like my doctor?
Still need to figure out what would be best total dosage of anastrozole per week, and what days, or to say better the dosage for 10 day cycle with trt shot. Less is more in this case.
Edit: Planning to start anastrozol either 0.25mg e2d or e3d, or around 0.12 ed or e2d. Propably the 1st option. Do lab controls often ( weekly ) to see effects as well as go by general feeling.
