My background is here: http://www.peaktestosterone.com/forum/index.php?topic=8700.0
For the past year, my doc has been lowering my hCG dose in an effort to lower my T, E2 and hematocrit levels. Last month my labs were:
Total T: 484
T Free: 44.4
T Bio: 91.4
E2: 83 (!!)
t3 Uptake: 37
hcg: 800 IU, 3x per week
Unithroid: 25 mcg daily.
Doc made a change then, added anastrozole, 0.5 mgs 3x week and increased my hCG to 1600, 3x per week (big increase, I know).
Total Test: 905 (250-1100)
Free T: 262 (46-224)
Bio-available: 493 (110-575)
Hematocrit: 53.3 (38-50)
E2 Ultra sensitive: 50 (<29)
(first time for the ultra test)
SHBG: 15 (10-50)
TSH: 2.14 (.40-4.50)
(for some reason, no T4 levels on results)
I do feel better than the last several months, but obviously my total T is getting too high, my E2 remains high, and my hematrocrit remains high.
Question: Would testosterone injections be less likely to elevate my hematocrit?
