I’m 47 years old and I’ve been on TRT for about 12 weeks and have gained about 20 lbs. I hit the gym no less than 5 days a week and tropically start my workout with a 2 mile run to warm up. I would love to Say that this is muscle however, it seems to be in the lower back and love handles. This is driving me crazy.
I am currently on 100 mg of Testosterone Cypionate with Anastrozole infused. I am injecting 50 mg twice a week subcutaneously. I also was prescribed HCG and inject 50 units twice a week.
I receive my labs and my Testosterone Serum was 916 ng/dL and Estradiol was 31.8 pg/mL. My Hematocrit levels aren’t a bit high at 51.6 but I will be donating a pint of blood again in a few weeks.
Any theories on what may be going on. Is elevated estrogen messing with me?
My original labs before TRT has Testosterone at 354 ng/dL and Estradiol at 21.9 pg/mL
