    T levels to high????


    I have been on HRT for a couple of yeras now and have been told that my T levels were low so started on Androderm patch 2.5 mg. Retested after several months and was told that the levels were to high (approx 1000 on the labcorp scale where 800 is top of range). The dr put me on Androgel 1% 1 pump which would equal 1.25 mg. I quit seeing thatr Dr for multiple reasons and finally convinced my family Dr to renew the script for me. The initial lab result was 380 (again on Labcorps scale) so she agreed to the Androgel at 1 pump and a followup test.

    I continued to feel very exhausted, no libido, etc so I asked for a full work up...T levels, thyroid, CBC, urine, & B-12.

    The T levelscame back as to high.
    T serum 727 on range of 241 - 827
    Free t direct 2909 on scale of 6.6 - 18.1

    everything else was in range except my vit D levels which is strange since I take supp that contain Vit D.

    Now she wants me to stop the gel since there isn't a smaller dose.

    My primary questuion(s) are has this happened to anyone else?

    What are the effects of high T levels short term and long term?

    My Dr is not very familiar with andropause and wouldn't prescribe the first time I saw her which is why I had gone to another Dr. i had also gone to a Uro back the and he refused to treat since it was in the "range" even tho it was only in the 300s.

    I seem to be swinging back and forth with no appreciable results.

    Post all blood and other tests.
    Post them by date.
    Post them as:
    name, value, units, range
    ---------------------------

    Indeed you results looks strange, that is on very small dose you show very high TT levels.

    How have you drawn blood.
    Was it from location that you have just applied Androgel or Androderm couple hours ago?

    Too many mysteries, must be simple explanation somewhere.
    -----------------

    Eventually you will have to get decent blood test,
    may as well take a look at my list on post #44
    http://anabolicminds.com/forum/male-...oodtest-2.html

    It is hard to locate good doc.
    If your doc would cooperate and write scripts when you ask him to, you may want to try that road.
    You would then ask him for blood tests, we would discuss what you may need, based on those tests, then you would go back to your doc asking for scripts for medicines.

    All that time you may want to search for doc that eventually would take care of you.

    Some docs do just HRT, period.
    Asking for HRT is helpfull but is extremely limited request.
    Most people find out that they have a host of problems, you need doc who is versatile eough to give you help in those areas.

    Most common
    Adrenals
    thyroid
    testosterone/estrogenes
    glucose/insuline/metabolic
    gastrointestinal
    nutritional
    .
    .
    Take 8000-10000iu of vid D per day
    .
