After poor results with Axiom and Androgel, my gp started me on bi-weekly injections of test. CYP 1cc200mg. She did a blood draw 5 days into my third injection and my Total test was 1520, thats a big change from 271 on Androgel. Here's the problem, my free test or bioavailable test was very low, so I felt no improvement. She will agree to more blood tests, but I need to know what blood tests to have her add to total and free test. I am 6'3" and 244 lbs with a bmi of 31+/- I am 48 and fat around the abs, waist size 38, but somewhat muscular otherwise. I suspect my body is converting test to estrogen or estrodol or something like that. Even at a total test level of 1520 I cannot maintain an erection without viagra. Please don't suggest dividing up the test cyp in getting injections more often, that will not be an option. I have had this problem for almost 13 years, blood pressure and thyroid medicated but ok. My lack of interest in work, home, and everything else is evident. We have no male hormone specialist's in our area and I most likely could not afford them if we did. I have blood work tomorrow am. I know Estradiol levels should be checked, as well as total and free test. Can anyone add anything to that she may agree to and Blue Cross would pay? Thanks
