    effect of TRT on Thyroid


    what is the effect of Test Cyp injections on Thyroid function.

    I am on test Cyp with limited symptom success and am becomingincreasingly convinced Thyroid and/or Adrenal problems are the culprit.

    My PCP is consulting w/ Dr. Crisler and I have done the Rhein 24hr Urine Lab. Waitigng for feedback. Interestingly, Free T3 and Free T4 aren't included in that panel.

    I dug up old BW and found I had TSH and Free T4 run in the past w/ normal to low-normal Free T4 and TSH of 2.66 and 4.3

    Curious if now that I am on Test Cyp if that clouds Thyroid testing.

    Can't wait to hear from Dr. Crisler.

    Do not have answer but;

    make effort to get

    FreeT3
    FreeT4
    FreeT
    E2
    2/16 and 4
    DHT
    DHEA
    pregnenolone

    into desirable range and worry who comes first latter or not at all.

    Ask your PCP to test the whle above list (and few other).
    ============================== =============

    Post complete results of your RheinLab test, you may get some feedback.

    I walked into the same problem. I tried every form of TRT from gels, creams to finally injections (at 125/150mg weekly) and noticed nothing in the way of improvements with regards to libido/ED, etc. However i was also diagnosed with adrenal fatigue and hypothyrodism a few months later.

    Testosterone will lower cortisol and DHEA. It can also effect thyroid due to this.

    Good TRT responders have perfect adrenal/thyroid function.

    Agreed, I saw 25% decrease in cortisol. After being on TRT (using only 100mg Test Cyp /week) for 5 weeks my cortisol went from 136 to 101, with a test range of (35-168).

    During the same time interval, my DHEA went from 3972 to 1892, with a test range of (5-1476).

    A little bit of testosterone has made a world full of positive changes.

    Make sure you get prescription compounded pregnenolone cream.
    100mg/1gram use 1gram/day

    JanSz, please elaborate on what you mean here. Are you seeing something I am missing?

    My pregnanediol results were 329 and 407 respectively, with a test range of (32-501).

    5-Pregnenetriol was 630 and 679, with a test range of (28-1062).

    The first number in each represents pre-HRT baseline.
