Been on TRT since late May, have had some ups and downs, as expected, but overall feel pretty decent. Protocol is 50mg Test Cyp, IM, 2X week, Monday AM, Thursday PM (100mg total), 500iu hCG 3X/week, .5mg Adex 2X/week.
Had labs done back in July:
TT: 1010 ng/dL (RR is 265-916) (Took Test Cyp in morning, blood was taken in afternoon)
FreeT: 185 pg/mL (RR 33-227)
BioT: 433 ng/dL (RR 131-682)
SHBG: 50.2nmol/L (RR 19-76)
E2(sens.) 56 pg/mL (RR 11-43) Previous from late May was 41.
Then had labs repeated in mid-August. (Had not had Thursday’s injection when blood taken)
TT: 520 ng/dL (RR is 265-916)
FreeT: 96 pg/mL (RR 33-227)
BioT: 235 ng/dL (RR 131-682)
SHBG: 38.5 nmol/L (RR 19-76)
E2(sens.) 42 pg/mL (RR 11-43) Previous from late May was 41.
Again, overall I feel decent but am wondering if I’m in the optimum range of T levels or should I ask to have my dose of Test Cyp increased. I want to thrive, not merely “tread water”.
On a positive note, my endo cares more how I feel than what the numbers are. I’m 49, reasonably fit, strength train 3X/week and do varying cardio 3-4X/week.
