I've been on test a little more than than a month...
I had new blood work done about a week ago...
DHT 94 ng/dl (ref. 25 - 75)
Total test 728 ng/dl ( ref. 250 - 1000)
% Free test 3.11 % (ref. 1.5 - 2.2)
Free test 226.2 pg/ml (35 - 155)
Estradiol 52 (13 - 54)
PSA, Total 0.4 ng/ml
Below was my old number before HRT.
DHT 35 ng/dl (ref. 25 - 75)
Total test 251 ng/dl ( ref. 250 - 1000)
% Free test Don't recall this number
Free test 63.6 pg/ml (35 - 155)
Estradiol 41 (13 - 54)
PSA, Total 0.3 ng/ml
As you can see from above results, my DHT went up pretty much. It is not above the ref. range. Estrogen level wasn't good before and it is increased even more though it didn't went up as much as DHT.
Here are my questions:
1) SHould I worry about my DHT level? It is above the ref. range. Moreover, it almost tripled from previous value.
2)Is my estrogen value too high? in relation to my test values and DHT values?
3) If my DHT is too high, what can I do to lower the DHT level?
I am using test gel from compounding pharmacy. 100mg per day, 10%. Currently, I am not using any other medication relating to HRT.
Any advice or suggestions?
