Afternoon readings have been inconsistent, thus the increased test granularity for future tests.  I'll keep you advised.

"When I was on EOD enanthate or cypionate I didn't really have noticeable peaks or troughs; measurements were about same when taken either just before an injection or the day after."

Ditto for me on 2x/wk Cypionate.

Please note that I said "...seems to...", have not done enough testing over a very long period of time to say "definitely", more testing is required.
On test day, I inject at 600 am, test around 1000 am and again around 430 pm.  Since this test  regiman has produced some perplexing afternoon readings, the next time, I am going to test at 10, 115, and 430. Or maybe 10, 12, 2, and 4.

The tailored daily dose, besides keeping LH and FSH in the normal range, keeps me in the 550 to 650 total T circadian range which is what it was all my younger life.  Numbers that keep everything working right.
Do I feel better on a higher dose (800 or 900), yes, but it is artificial, not me, not what I have always been.
I think a lot of guys believe that HRT is going to make them feel and think great all the time and when it doesn't, they think they need to increase the dose.  When really, they forgot that they didn't feel and think great all the time when they were young(er).  A lot of life and body factors affect how we think and feel.
I also think that if a guy is 550 or 600 in younger life and then later with HRT, gets into the 900 or 1000 range, it has a negative effect on his heart and other body systems.

Daily SQ Propionate seems to peak about 4 hours after inject.

Daily low-dose Propionate SQ works for me.  And tuned it so I still make LH snd FSH.

Vitamin K2 !

Life Extension "Super K" is my choice.

One of those studies also said that high SHBG was an independent risk factor for osteoporosis.  Maybe not so independent ???

Yes interesting.  Older men with low bone density without diurnal variation also had about twice as much SHBG.  Maybe the higher SHBG was sucking up enough E2 that the variation got lost in the low levels (methodology sensitivity  etc.).

My BMD is down although my E2 levels are most always good at about 18 to 28.  Although I have never done a diurnal study on E2.  My SHBG levels are consistently high, maybe that is the issue.

And the amounts are not trivial, they are significant.  You will see with a web search.

You should know that pomegranate seeds have higher E1 and E2 levels than any other plant.  Most of tbe commercial juice includes the seeds.

Cat,
If you wanted the MOST accurate Total T and T Free test result, would you choose LC/MS/MS or Equalibrium Dialysis ?
Thanks

The article references Inhibin A in which I am intensely interested.  If anyone has any info on male (only male) disease states involving Inhibin A, I would appreciate the sharing of the info.
Thanks
