fT3 = 5.1 ( 2.6-5.7 )
That is higher than mid-range, probably compensating for something and if that is elevated rT3, your body temperatures have been low.
With elevated rT3, we need to consider adrenal fatigue, look that up in the thyroid basics sticky and note stress factors and Wilson’s book.
Stress can include training when energy levels are low, driving through with sheer will power - aka adrenalin.
Can you get rT3 tested?
Evaluate your overall thyroid function by checking oral body temperatures as per the thyroid basics sticky. Thyroid hormone fT3 is what gets the job done and it regulates mitochondrial activity, the source of ATP which is the universal currency of cellular energy. This is part of the body’s temperature control loop. This can get messed up if you are iodine deficient. In many countries, you need to be using iodized salt. Other countries add iodine to dairy or bread.
I have modified my training in the last 4 months.
I’m now training 6 times a week but only 35 to 60 minutes at a time , instead of 4 times a week 2hr. I also only do 3 compound mouvements pyramidal style (1×12, 1x10, 1x8, 1x6, 1x3). I have more wheel power that I should, can get me in trouble. Weight lifting is my religion if you know what I mean😆. I will be redusing the volume so this will help. I keep getting stroger and so is my hand grip. So how can I be having a probleme whit adrenal fatigue ?

I’m presentely using:

Gelatin 10g ED (for joint, tissus and gut healt)
Test cyp 50mg and 40mg E3.5D
Anastrozole 1 drop E3.5D
I will be getting complet thyroide test in a couple of week’s. Hopping this one will be complet.
I got some hcg on line, so will be completing my trt.
Plan on only using 100 iu E3.5D, I tend to over react to meds, so will be going slow.
hCG is a natural hormone, not a drug. So it may behave normally for you. However, I have seen two guys here that reacted rather strongly to hCG, leading to an adverse amount of T–>E2 inside the testes, leading to higher serum E2 levels, and anastrozole cannot control T–>E2 inside the testes.
hCG should not react any differently for you than your own LH. But one difference is that hCG is a high amount every two days VS LH release in pulses through the day.
I got a cal from my urologist today and he told me that it was impossible to give me a script for hcg.
He told me that I could get fibroide in my testes.
Is this a joke!?! I Google it and it turned out it’s a condition that women could have doing the hcg diet.
Women have huge hCG levels during pregnancy. That is why their urine is collected to obtain hCG. Sorry, you did not need to know that. So hCG diet is harmful? Give me a break. Fibroids are a result of estrogen dominance, as progesterone levels fall in later adulthood, a progesterone deficiency. The uterus is affected, not the ovaries. hCG will increase a woman’s hormone levels and all of that is complicated by changes during a woman’s cycle. Women get fibroids and ovarian cysts all of the time. So how can one sort out the effects of hCG. For any given women who has hormone problems, hCG could be expected to make that worse in some cases. Life is tough for women!
Hi KSman !
I took my first SC injection of hcg, felt good all day like super man, then on the next day felt like shit.
I took only 250iu, and I most confest it’s my second try. I tried 250iu IM a week ago and I felt like shit only a couple of houres later. Took me abouth three day to feal good again. So I must be over responding to this to? Could this confirm that my testes are not the problem and that my punery glande is the problem ? I do not know if I’m primary or secondaire.
I also felt pain in my teste on the night of the injections and for the next couple of day’s.
Realy bizarre !
Is this normal ?
I only took 2 trops of anastrozole with my SC injection this time around. Could this be a result of my E2 rising or craching down? I know that Al. can not lower E2 inside the testes. The time befor with IM I ad taken 3 drops. So I will have to try taking hcg with out any anastrozole and at 100 iu will up the doss slowly and see how it goes.
My doctor and other specialists don’t know that i’m taking Al. and hcg. Should I tell them?
I have bean reading on varicocele and i’m wondering if this could be the source of my low T and testes ache. I notice my left testicule to be bigger then the right side. And the left scrotum seam to be fuller. Could trt have help in redusing the pain by cutting off the LH. Could hcg trying to get my testes causing the pain to return ?
I will have to investaged with my urologist.
But why to testes hurt?
If one starts TRT with hCG, the testes never shink.
If hCG is introduced later, testes can be aching then hCG typically fixes that and with introduction of hCG one might have sensations from the testes related to physical recovery.
Are your testes+hCG flooding E2? Only way to know is to test E2 levels at that time. You sometimes need labs to get where you need to be.
Can you get labs on your own there. Most, not all, USA States allow that.
I’m not from the US, I am from Canada, Québec to be precise. I have blood test shedul for next fryday. I’m preaty sure that my E2 is Hi , but, I can feal it comming down. Less emotionnal today, I ad more patiance, felt less overwelme and more positif. I will reduce to 100iu of hcg and see how I feal.
Anastrozole will be of no use, I’m a over responder, so I need to go verry slow on this.
My urologist never examine me, when I tolded him the aches ad stop sinse on trt, he only said good.
They are the Best at treating symptomes and that’s abouth it. The root cause is not important.
Ps: I tried two other injection at 250iu of hcg. The testes ache are gone but I have no energy or motivation to train.
I was fealing verry good befor hcg ,add lots of energy and verry good libido.
I do not know wath to make of this. But I decided to ride it out. I will give my body time to stabilise and will be doing BW in 4 or 6 week’s. I think that I can get BW done in Vermont ?
“Residents of NY, NJ, RI and MD are not permitted to have blood drawn at LabCorp, due to state regulations. Blood draw kits will be sent in lieu of a requisition. Additional fees for drawing and processing your blood may apply.”
As an experiment, Nolvadex could be used to increase LH/FSH to see how you react to that VS hCG.
Yes, I have read some information on that today. I could try 10mg of nolvadex ED and see how it goes. But I feal I have to start by letting by body ajust to hcg first and do BW.
I’m injecting one day befor my test cyp. and it seams to help. I take one drop of anastrozole whit hcg and one drop whit my test cyp.
I will be trying the nolvadex if things do not improuve, I myth even cycle then later on.
I seam to have another bizarre reaction on hcg. After the third injection I started to notice a rash on my back and then on my chest. After my fourth shot I notice that my privat parts were itching to. I have pinple and it’s itching to a certain degree.
I’m doing a iodine reload at the same time and to add to the variable I use a public spa one week ago.
Never add this reaction befor. For the record, we were abouth 12 using the spa and I was the only one that add that rash. And I do recal starting to itch befor the spa.
I read that some on the hcg diet add similare reaction. I’m not on a 500 cal. a day and do not inject 250iu a day. But I tend to over react to almost every thing. I also read that I could use a antifongus. I’m testing this solution at the moment and seam to be working.
Is this a commun side effect, I don’t tink so?
The hcg I’m using is not phamaceutical. I bought that at Enhanced. … Is it the real deal?
Ok! Is it time to stop hcg. My skin start to flair-up on the next day of injection. I only took 200iu this time. The itching add started to go away. I could try benadryl today not sure, will this helps? I’m tinking alergic reaction.
So after the fifth injection I decided to stop and test my hcg wiht a pregnancy test. It turned out all negatif, the 3 vials are BS. I don’t know wath the hell I was injecting my self with but it sure not hcg. Thanks for notting M. Pionnier of evolution !
I have droped hcg for now, I will be looking for a New and ledgit supplier. My next lab will be in june, so trying to stabilise until then. I’m unsure of wath was in this vials, but was not hcg. It mest-up my energy level , motivation in the gym, feeling depressed and itching like crazy for the last couple of week’s . Starting to feal better after having a massive headache last night but still itching.
Yes, I bought the BA watter at the same time and from the same compagnie. I mixted it and then proceded with the test. All 3 bottels were tested and were negatif on the pregnancy test. I sent then a video and a couple of emails. They contacted me and proceded with a full refun. They tolded me that hot temperature could be a factor during shiping. I know the powder is not sensitif to heat but once it as bean reconstituted this rule change. Then and only then heat can destroid it. This is a bogust explanation…
So back to scare one.
My doctor refuses to prescribe me HCG. At least he finally agreed to anastrozole. Everybodys body is different, but I don’t trust internet medications. I am going through a new fun thing, when I sleep I wake up sweating a hour to 2 hours in and sucks. Even with AC on I sweat. I wasn’t a person who sweat hardly ever before TRT except when really hot out or physical exercise. Now I seem hotter more but body temp is still normal for me.
