Just checking the post, after lunch break. Thank you for the questions, guys!
Qu: PeakT:...You're talking peak here with the pellets, right?
Sam: Well, not quite, this last value is from the (25 June 2014) blood work done at 10 weeks post insert. By the 24 week point or thereabouts, blood work shows the Free T value has sloped
down to about, oh, 750 pg/mL. Yeah, I really have to update the numbers in my Signature Block.
I'm working from memory here on earlier years blood numbers, but the couple of times in the beginning, I had blood drawn within 2 to 3 weeks after the pellet insert, Free T was
already sitting nicely around 1,050 to 1,150 pg/mL. The 'spike' you would expect wasn't there. So, my TRT doctor said we can go to 12 week and 24 week blood work.
I cannot explain it, but I suspect that the very slow leaching and entrant effect of the pellet chemicals from the adipose tissue into the blood capillary system mitigates against a significant spike.
Qu: OSPREY: Just curious, how is your hematocrit at that level?
Sam: Again, I am working from memory, I don't remember the HC number, but all my blood tests have come back mid-range or a little higher, and my Doctor and I weren't concerned
with "the Number". I'll post it here when I get to my labs paperwork.
And, I shall repeat again, as Mr. PeakT has said, everybody is going to have a different matrix of numbers in the beginning, while you are fighting to regain Inner Balance, and when
you finally have it 'dialed-in' and are enjoying your masculinity and health again. (Yes, happened to me, even at my doddering, decrepit, falling-apart old age...)
Y'All have a good day! Do something FUN this weekend.
Cheers! - Sam D.
