In preparation for my upcoming appointment with Defy Medical, I had the attached labs performed. I've been on TRT for over 5 years now, and feel MUCH better than I did than before I started. Just not feeling myself lately. Other than my estradiol being a bit on the lowish side, and my cholesterol numbers being out of whack, I don't see anything that jumps out at me. In the interest of giving Dr. Saya all the necessary tools to generate a protocol for me, I'm wondering if there are any labs I should have performed, prior to my appointment. Prolactin, cortisol, preg, etc...
Libido spiked for 45 days or so after switching back to IM from SubQ, but now it's very hit and miss. Mostly miss. I don't have an issue with ED, just the desire to play, so to speak.
Apathy, and lack of enthusiasm.
Emotional. Can't talk about my kids when they were younger without the tears trying to fall. Same goes with videos of kittens, or sappy songs....Okay, I may be exaggerating, but not by much!
No gains or drive in the gym.
Joint pain (although, this feels more like tendon issues???)
Significant testicular atrophy
Low fat, low carb, high protein for the most part
Daily alcohol content. Not a ton, but still daily
Very active. Gym 3/4 days a week. 1 or two cardio events weekly. Low body fat
Current protocol is 14 mg Test Cyp EOD. No AI. I'm thinking that some HCG might bring my E2 up a bit, and help with the atrophy, but I'll see what Dr. Saya says.
Anyway, I just want to give the Dr. Saya enough information to work with on during the first consultation.
Anything stand out to anyone, or have any lab suggestions?
