First post on the site. Going for my first appointment with a biomedical hormone therapy doctor next week. I'm going to a doc in the Boston area. DM me if you know anyone around here who works well in this subject. Anyways, I used several prohormones spanned out between ages 17 and 19- superdrol (twice), epistaine, furuzadrol. So four months overall while using just nolvedex xt as pct. I was an idiot, I know. Biggest mistakes of my life.
I've gone from 175 lbs at 8-10% bf to 180 at about 16-18% body fat as I've worked harder and harder to stay in shape while keeping a better diet with age as well. Most of the muscle turned into fat over these 5 years and its been very, very frusturating. The last year or so has been brutal as anxiety, loss in confidence, have taken a serious toll on me while the muscle loss has been getting worse and worse. I've seen a few doctors (internist, psychologist, a dickhead endo) where they've looked at me like an idiot I'm a when I mentioned this stuff. (lol my internist said my estradiol level of 55 was perfectly fine after he did not want to do these bloods for me), but finally it looks like I found the right guy.
Anyways going into this meeting next week with the biomed doctor, I'd just like some advice on what you guys think about my hormonal profile and what you think he should be prescribing me. I will list the numbers below. Also, at first glance it looks ok (test), but LH and IGF are very concerning. Also DHEA is low, my cholesterol is not looking well while insulin is very low. Remember, I'm only 24 and should be on the high end for LH, IGF, and DHEA at this age. (I must also add that I've been taking aromasin, an ai, for the last month and a half since I found out my estradiol was 55. At the time test was 650 and estradiol was 55.)

What do you guys think? From my not-so-deep knowledge, I'm thinking HCG along with an AI should do the trick for LH, test, and cholesterol problems while I'm perplexed about the IGF1. Do you guys think this doc would put me on a GHRP or a GHRH? This doctor is supposed to get your hormones to "optimal levels."
Any advice would be great. Thank you!
