Check out the link I sent.  I think it could be too low, which can lead to many issues including potentiallyh osteopenia. 

Check out this link:

"The lowest estradiol group that suffered a 317% increased death rate had serum estradiol levels under 12.90 pg/mL."

You are very close to that.  You need a smart doc with some good experience who can help you with all of this...

With E2, you don't want to be too high or too low.

If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.

Testosterone levels can vary considerably from individual to individual.  It is somewhat common for a young person (21 years of age) to have a low level of total testosterone reported at 310 ng/dl.  The reasons that individuals have low levels of testosterone are not clearly understood.  Basically, it has to do with the production of the testes of subnormal amounts of testosterone.  This can be a result of genetic factors, pituitary gland factors, medication interference and other interfering substances and factors.  The levels of 364, 432 are in the low range of normal.  It may not be a problem depending upon the degree of symptoms, fatigue, weakness, low libido, etc.

A trial dose of testosterone in a moderate amount may be beneficial to determine if this would be beneficial from a medical perspective.  I feel that without a trial dose and follow up blood tests to determine increased levels one cannot know for sure.

Peak T- I have finally found a good endo who is getting me straightened out with the T and E2

I addressed him with my prolactin concerns, its been tested at 11.9 , and 11.7, he didnt think it was an issue. Do you think i should further pursue this?

Are any of the non rx methods of lowering prolactin such as vitex, Vit B6, or Mucuna Pruriens actually effective?? Or are only rx drugs such as dostinex actually effective in reducing prolactin?

Also do you now anything about iodine deficiencies and how they relate to poor thyroid function and low body temps?? Is iodine deficiency really common now a days? How about supplementing with something like Iodoral?

Thanks
