So this is my situation atm: On TRT 120mg per week for 5 weeks. Last 3 weeks bumped it up to 150mg/week.
I inject every 3.5 days. As for other medications I have since 3 days ago also started taking Milkthistle and Berberine (800mg/day). To hopefully increase my SHBG.
I lift weights 6x days a week about 40-50min per session. And I have a quite physical job.
Lab results below is taken on the morning of third day after injection (I would inject on the evening).
I have all my Pre-TRT lab results on the first post.
Note: I donated blood 1 month ago. I will donate again in 1.5 months.
Hematocrit 0,49 (0,39-0,49)
Hemoglobin 150g/l (134-170g/l)
MCV 96 (82-98FL)Fat lipids
HDL Cholestrol 1,03 (0,8-2.1mmol/L)
Cholestrol 3,58 (2,9-6,1mmol/L)
LDL Cholestrol 2,36 (1,2-4,3mmol/L)
TSH 1,3miU/L (0,4-4,0miu/L (This one really shocks me. I have always been around 3-3.3TSH over the course of 2 ˝ years. Dosen't TRT worsen thyroid function? This puts TSH in optimal range!...)
Total testosterone 138ng/dl
Estradiol (nonsensitive) <12pg/ml
ALAT 0,3 ukat/L (0,15-1,1 µkat/L)
ASAT 0,53 (0,25-0,75 µkat/L)
Iron 14umol/L (9-34 µmol/L)Kidney
Kalium 3,9umol/L (3,5-4,4 mmol/L)Creatinine108umol/L
Natirum 141nmol/L (137-145 mmol/L)
I have a few thoughts. Please write yours.
Obviously my total T is very low considering the amount I inject 75mg every 3.5 days and I'm at 138ng/dl on the third day is awfully low.
1. My medicine might be underdosed?
2. My low SHBG clears the testosterone extremely fast?
3. Why is my TSH in the optimal range for the first time in ever? I thoguht that TRT is suppose to worsen thyroid function not improve it? I must say that on TRT I do feel alot more resistant to cold now. I use to get cold really easily.
How should we proceed?
1. Increase frequency to 3x a week injections?
2. Increase dose?
Thank you very much
