6 weeks into TRT, labs show Test is lower?

That is the only reason I am considering an anti-aging clinic......to get GH The test I will just get from my doctor, (fully) legal. If I want DHT gel or caps? I can also get that pretty easy. Good legit GH is hard to find/get prescribed. I live in South Florida so there are anti-aging clinics all around the place....everybody is "old" down here.

The amount of people I know on 300mg/wk with a prescription could be counted on one hand.

Different labs have different normal ranges but for a man, hgb upper end of normal is ~18.5, upper end of hct is around 45-48.Originally Posted by pcn

Yeah, pretty close to mine. So far, that's really been my only side effect. My e2's been high, but I never had any symptoms...Originally Posted by EasyEJL

Well, easy and I just lowered our dose to bring them into semi normal range. I also started taking a full dose aspirin because my pcp, not endo, was freaking out. He said a hct of 57 is 'a walking time bomb.'Originally Posted by pcn
That didn't sit well with mrs napalm...

Yeah, all it takes is being a bit more dehydrated than normal, some significant event raising blood pressure short term and pop there goes a stroke. Work a few long days, abuse red bull to stay energetic and that alone could do it. There may be some dietary things you could do as well.

You guys would be terrified of EQ considering your phobia of RBC counts...
You want to talk about shortness of breath, lol. EQ trumps Test in the area of blood thickening.

I've been looking at getting my father on TRT. He is 62, has had a history of vascular clogging as he went through a triple bypass surgery not too long ago. His heart doctor recommended he get on TRT, too.
But its good to know that he should be at the 100mg/wk range rather than 200+..

With your fathers history, he can look forward to a dramatic lowering of cholesterol and lipid profile.
My cholesterol went from 270-190 after starting trt.
04-18-2013, 11:28 AM
mine fluctuates, but is in the 130-160 range

Talk to your Doc
When I started on Androgel 1% my doc started me on 2 pumps. My test levels dropped and the next visit he bumped me up to 4 pumps. Now I am well within the normal range.

and if you aren't absorbing axiron, you can probably forget about any of the other gels. On to injections I say.
05-05-2013, 08:46 PM
I skipped the patches altogether. Injections are quick, generally safe (if you are clean) and eliminate any doubt about delivery of Test into your system.

Just got caught up on this thread it's easy to bring your RBC count down.
Give blood every couple months. This will immediately bring your RBC count down. If your on TRT or just constantly cycling I would suggest you be a blood donor. Have your count check after that and you'll see.
Easy fix and keeps you healthy... There are some people out there with conditions that their body naturally produces too much RBC and that is what they have those people do.
