Low Albumin, effects on trt?
« on: February 19, 2015, 11:20:05 pm »
By accident i had some tests taken last month, first time T is checked after i changed from 8 to 6 weeks between injections, for the first time ever Albumin in blood was on the list and it wasnt exactly high, 37g/L with range 36-48.

Albumin 3.6g/L
Testosterone(5 weeks after injection with nebido) 15 nmol/L = 433 ng/dl
Shbg(last test more then 1 year ago) 20 nmol/L

Free T = 1.32 nmol/L = 8.81%
Bioavailable T = 3.81 nmol/L = 25.4%




Did some searching but found not much at all, is low albumin rare in any way?
What impact does it have with TRT?
Im burning T like crazy and need very close injections, can low albumin be partly responsible?
Does free and bio T look decent?

Regards

I don't think it has much practical effect.  It does of course bind with testosterone.  However, the albumin-bound testosterone is bonded rather weakly and the body can make use of it easily and thus it is included in bioavailable testosterone.
THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE BOOK ON TRT/TESTOSTERONE:
https://www.amazon.com/Natural-Versus-Testosterone-Therapy-Myer/dp/1523210532/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1499116128&sr=8-1&keywords=natural+versus+testosterone+therapy
And check out my New Peak Testosterone Program: http://www.peaktestosterone.com/peak_testosterone_program
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.
