Had phone consultation with Dr Smith today regarding my lab results. It was quite good and she is making a few minor adjustments and adding a couple of items.
initial labs on 8/29/12 by Lab Corp
Testosterone 326 ng/dl
Free "T" 6.1 pg/ml
Estradiol 30.3 pg/ml
Prostate -Specific Ag .6 ng/ml
IGF-1 81 ng/ml
IGF-BP3 2.5 mg/L
Ferritin 429 ng/ml
DHEA 91 ng/dL
RBC 4.87 x10E6/uL
Prolactin 24.8 ng/mL
Started on November 1,2012 :
Testosterone cypionate 200 mg/week in divided doses
Anastrazole 1 mg take ½ tablet 3x/wk
HCG 600 units SQ 2x/wk
Plus vit d3 and probiotic and vtamin supplements
As stated previously I feel like a new person! Better mood, more energy, better sleep and better sex.
LabCorp did following tests on 12/12/2012
Testosterone 1368 ng/dl !!!!!!!
Free "T" 32.0 pg/ml !!!!!!!
Estradiol 14.6 pg/mL
Prostate Ag .9 ng/mL
RBC 4.85 x10E6/uL
Drs notes " We look for excess RBC(ranges 4.14-5.80) when treating with testosterone
Free "T" slightly high. Ideal range for your age is 25-30
Total testosterone is just a little high."
" Continue with HCG and Anastrazole at same rate. Change Testosterone cypionate to .4ml first dose per week and .5ml second dose per week."
High ferritin—ideal levels may be 40-200, your level is 429.
Recommend you *donate blood *2-3 times to Red Cross. This also decreases
blood viscosity and reduces heart risk so make this a habit. Consider
rechecking ferritin in 6-8 weeks
Low IGF-1—Start *Sermorelin *in recommended doses. *0.3 mcg SQ
each evening*. (Note: Evening before bed is best as this is when our body’s
repair work is done.) Check IGF-1 in 6-8 weeks
*Low DHEA—Start 25 mg tablet daily*. Rarely, we go to 50 mg.
Precursor hormone to testosterone and has anti-aging properties. Too much
can cause acne and balding
Elevated prolactin since 2005, questionable pituitary adenoma
treated with bromocriptine for several years, off for almost two
years—Continue to monitor pituitary function annually.
In 6-8 weeks (late Jan/early Feb) draw ferritin, IGF-1, Prolactin,
Let me know what you think Peak T and again thanks for all you do.
