Peak T  thanks for the reply i always appreciate your time , help and response ...now answer to your questions

1.At the time of tests,NO  i wasnt on clomid ...this is only my 2nd week on clomid...but i might have been on DAspartic  Acid at the time ..regarding my high T level, i dont trust it T levels can be inconsistent or maybe my T is converting so quickly to Estradiol(E2),,gosh i am becoming an expert in this field(lol)

2.The only reason why i was on Dostinex(cabergoline) was to help reduce my poor refractory period.(thats another issue by itself)...i am convinced there could be something with my pituary gland...but hopefully Endo will do some findings when i eventually see him/her

3.Yes my triglycerides is 0.4mmol/L ,is it that low ?  whats the implications for that.....  from the lab report i gather that the normal range should be between 0.3 and 2.2

Gurus shed some light . on this please ..but Peak my  question about HCG or Clomid  or TRT  still hasnt been answered with respect to  raising LH and FSH  and restoring sexual function
I am also looking at hypothyroidsm as a possible cause but .keeping  an open mind....what are your thoughts pep[le please share your successful experiences!!

Sorry not to respond.  Your readings do not make sense to me. 

To answer your main question I think:  either HCG or Clomid will usually restore function in men that are secondary.  You are on Clomid already so that should work for you.  HCG is an LH analog and so it also would work. 

Which one is better?  Well, that depends and you want to get an expert that can deal with your situation which would probably be a fertility doc.  Clomid, as you know, has some sides (eyes, etc.) and does not usually help libido that much but is very cheap and convenient.  HCG is more work, does often boost mood and energy, and must be carefully monitored since it can boost E2 so rapidly.

Peak,Thanks for the response ...please break it down briefly why my readings dont make sense , i am pushing for another test which i will use as baseline  to check whether Llomid is raising my T or doing anything in the meantime.
So are you saying my T is about OK ish and all my numbers are OK ?

Well, if you testosterone is really that high, you should be okay as long as your endothelium is in good shape.  And your LH should not be low. 

By the way, you want to get your Vitamin D levels over 30 - that's considered the deficiency level.  Don't go too high until they figure out if it can push calcium into your soft tissues.  I take about 2500 IU per day but everyone can be a little different on that.

Again, though, it could be estradiol?  Or there are a few guys with very low free T because their SHBG is through the roof?

Again, I'd push your doc for answers...
