    Stumped on lower T


    Hey Guys

    Ok I started TRT 2 months ago, had 4 shots. 3@ 200 every other week and last week just started 100 every week. To start off my T was 194, last week had it checked and came in at 140...... I feel great, tons of energy feeling solid again everything seems good but when I heard it was down from before blew me away..Doc has no clue why its lower . Going to keep me on 100 every week and test again in 6 weeks.
    And all other blood test said came back normal...Was wondering if this is normal ? Because just seems crazy that Im feeling great now but its lower...... stumped.

    probably hyper excreter, i run into.these occasionally. They require testosterone more frequently may be every other day sub q injection would be suggested. what about conversion to e2 or dht. Some meds can interfere with this .

    if that is true you prob have other medical issues you are not aware of. It is possible to experience what you described.

    I used to take a lot of test till I improved my body's function and after that I cut my TRT dose by 40% roughly. If I were to take the same dose I use to take my levels go through the roof now.

    Apparently, testing testosterone is very difficult, only certain labs have the proper equipment, and errors are common...
