TRT not changing Total T?
02-28-2010 07:19 PM
Thanks for the reply. With test only, no HCG, my estradiol was 13. Haven't checked it since then, but have no symptoms of excess. Can low estradiol also cause the problem?

PS: It was no problem at all this morning, according to my wife....lol! Seems to occur only certain time of week like a day or two after my test inj. Maybe I'll split it up to twice a week.

If you are able, use Quest Diagnostics, blood drawn at Quest.

Higher SHBG, for all kind of reasons goes with older age.
At 55, it is catching up with you.
No offence, I am 70.
You need proper SHBG levels for at lest two reasons.
High SHBG eats too much TT, (your beloved BAT, BioAvailableTestosterone)
But also hogh SHBG says that you have problem somewhere.
Quickest way is to look at your metabolism.
Quicker, glucose/insulin, body weigh, waist size.
You want to look at this chart:
On that chart you want to have
With SHBG you have to extrapolate, you need TotalT~1400 or better.
100mg/week is not going to cut it.
Use EOD schedule
use these needles
BD Ultrafine II U-100 Insulin Syringe 31 Gauge 3/10cc 5/16inch Short Needle
After 2-3 months check
Estradiol [4021X](13- 54 pg/mL)
Estrogens, Fractionated, LC/MS/MS (36742X)
Testosterone, Free, Bio/Total (LC/MS/MS) Code: 14966X
Estradiol, sensitive 140244
If your SHBG is falling down, you have a good dose.
If your SHBG stays put, increase
get 50 units syringes (for test)
You should consider investigating other health areas.
Start with my list of tests, post #44, link:

I am 5-8, 197 lbs and my waist is 33".
