I need help on what else to look for
Im 31 yrs old and on TRT for 8-9 months (no ph or aas usage prior to this) 150mgs of test cyp split into two weekly injections (75mg sun morn and wed night), arimedex .25mg every 2-3 days as needed.. kinda just judge dosage of arimidex off of morning wood. I also had my thyroid removed at the age of 14 due to it turning into a goiter (sp?).. thyroid medication is 200mcg synthroid + 15 mcg of t3 (dont remember the medication name)
I started have erection issues in my early-mid 20's but they were bearable although progressively got worse over the years to the point of not being able to ever finish sex without loosing my erection which is when i went to the doc.. my total test was decent (low 400's) but my free test was non-existent.. since ive been on TRT things are way better but still not 100%
I have labs that i can post #'s from but most aren't complete.. as in only a couple of things were tested each time and not a full panel..
So tell me what u need to see and ill post it up so you guys can help me find the problem.. my endo isnt the most informed in this area but she does listen to what i have to say and helps accordingly..
Btw ive been training since i was about 12-13 yrs old but slacked off for about 7 years in my 20's.. 5'8" 205 lbs about 14-15% bf

Thanks... i know pretty much everything i can test for as far as thyroid goes and its pretty easy to find what to check for as far as adrenal fatigue goes which ive never had my adrenals checked.... Although im not sure what to ask for when it comes to liver and GI track. Ive been told i have poor absorption due to the fact my thyroid meds have to be so high.. when i started taking synthroid after having my thyroid removed i was takin 75-100 MCG but that slowely got more and more through out the years untill i was taking 275 MCG and got changed to a t3/t4 combo..
Thanks again for and help

So a DR. put you on TRT..... What were your FT, E2, SHBG, LH, FSH, Prog, DHT, and DHEAs before TRT? And what are they now?

Yes a doc put me on TRT.. although afterwards i found out he was an idiot when i tried to get him to test my e2 and he all but refused but finally gave in.. ive since changed docs..Originally Posted by shbg82
My fist doc only tested my total and free test.. they wouldnt give me a copy of the lab results but my free test was below range a fair amout with my total t being in the low 400s
My new endo wanted to check pituitary (sp?) funtion so she took me off trt for 8 weeks and my results were
Estradiol 44.7 PG/ML (15-56)
igf1 261 ng/ml. (117-329)
Fsh 2.7MIU/ML (1.5-12.4)
Lh 3.4 MIU/ML (1.7-8.6)
Prolactin 13.4NG/ML (4.1-18.4)
now the only thing i have out if that list pre-TRT is prolactin which was a 5.23ng/ml with a range of 2.64-13.13
I also have a full set of labs consisting of comprehensive metabolic, cbc, and urinalysis that is pre-trt
Now i dont know if this may help on where for me to look but after i was put on trt, seeing how i wasnt worried with being shutdown anymore i did a cycle of Primordal Performance turinabol (halodrol clone) with their liver juice as a liver supporr... during that time everything was pretty much 100%

I guess what im looking for help with is what particular blood tests i need to ask for..
For gi tract... i have no clue
Liver.. will the standard Hepatic Panel work consisting of; total protien, albumin, globulin, alb/glob ratio, bilirubin total, direct & indirect, ast/sgot, alt/sgpt, alkaline phos... work or is there something else i need to ask for
As far as other things go.. hows this list look
E2 sensitive assay
Vitamin d OH25
Vitamin d OH25 D3
vitamin B12 & folate
Cortisol 4 sample saliva
Ferritin, % saturation, TIBC & serum iron
If it helps, my cholesterol is kinda out of wack..over two years my LDL was high once and normal once but my HDL was a 34.4 and a 38.8 with favorable being >60 and high risk being <40
Help me guys, im kinda lost on where to go
