Hello guys thanks for your help.
I am just curious what are ideal SHBG levels and free T levels for someone on TRT?
When i first started TRT i tried bi weekly injections and my SHBG dropped to like 10 and my free t was like almost 5%
My TRT totally felt like it was doing nothing…
Ever since then i have been paranoid about having low SHBG reading all the low SHBG horror stories.
However after going to daily injections my SHBG now ranges from 22.5 to 23 or so… It has been at this level for almost a year about now…
However TBH i am still not feeling much better a lot of the time… Well my results are very up and down… It cycles month by month between feeling ok but sub optimal to abysmal… Low muscle growth… Low energy… Shit libido… No morning wood… Terrible Ed… You name it… Seems ok on the better months/weeks… Feels like pre TRT on the bad months/weeks
My free T right now is about 2.9%
Last lab work
Total T 909
Free T 26.8 (2.9%)
I was reading the best free T levels are between 2 and 2.5%
But with my current albumin level… Using the free T calculator on Nebido website… To reach 2.5% free T, my SHBG would have to be at 32! I realize this is normal level for my age and based on early tests i think i had similar to this pre TRT… But i realize TRT knocks your SHBG down a bit
However at the same time… People keep telling me 23 is not low… I read a lot of good results people have with above 20 SHBG…
They tell me my problems are probably caused by something else…
