Blood was drawn early Wed morning.
The day before I had used 5gm packet of Androgel in the afternoon, and Mon afternoon before that, had my 30mg T-Cyp shot.
Hematocrit is a little high, but I didn't have much water to drink the night before test, and drank about 10oz water about an hour before the test. Hopefully, if I stay better hydrated this won't be an issue.
I'm concerned that SHBG is low. Maybe due to thyroid? Before, I had thought it was high, but maybe had mis-calculated it. This time, I had it directly tested.
Does my T-dosing look ok? My total-T looks on the low side. I use 70mg T-Cyp per week (last couple of weeks have been at 90mg wk), and 5gm androgel 3 days a wk, on days I don't inject. My doc added the gel because DHT was below range.
