    I just got these labs in. Doc says everything looks good except for low test. I believe it dropped due to varicocele; scheduling embolization surgery asap. Test gel seems to not be absorbing; been on it for 8 wks. Planning to do HCG after surgery. If that fails, looks like test shots for me.

    High night-time cortisol, low daytime

    Concentrate on adrenals, first priority.

    Next time do "ultrasensitive E2"
    or go to Quest diagnostics and do
    Estradiol, Free, LC/MS/MS (36169X)

    Agree. Is adaptogenic adrenal support enough? I am planning to try Retain2 at night to lower cortisol & sleep better.

    Looks like secondary hypogonadism with some estrogen dominance. That's were I was about 3 years ago before I started TRT.

    You are apparently not absorbing the compounded T well. Also I wonder if your adrenal glands are worn out.

    What did you take for estrogen?
