Just got my lab results in and some surprises. First, let me say that I have been battling a cold/sinus infection for several weeks and I've been taking a lot of cold medication. But I scheduled by blood work on that date and I didn't want to change it, thinking I could separate the numbers out of tolerance by reason of medication, etc. And I think I have. My ferritin, C-Reactive Protien, ALT and iron are high, but I can attribute all of those readings to Benadryl, Advil, Vicodin and prescription strength ibuprofen.
Now, as some of you may know I tried to drive my E2 down with Aromasin to see if my PSA would correspond accordingly. Unfortunately, all the meds I took affect the PSA, so that part will have to be re-tested.
I was taking 500mgs of test enanthate every week, as I usually do. I stopped for 10 days, that's all, 10 days, and my test level was 630. Either my rant about esters rings with some truth, or the meds also have a tendency to lower test. I think it's a combination of both, but I haven't had such low test numbers in over 10 years. I had lost 10 pounds too. So I'm going to look at this as some validation about my theory on the cleavage of esters.
Next, my E2... The last time I tested everything was equal except for the AI. I didn't take any AI before and my test was 1200 and E2 was 18. Now, with 7 straight days of Aromasin, my E2 was 19. And that's with half the serum test. I have a couple of thoughts on that, but I want to wait and see what my next test shows before I start saying anything.
Everything else was as I expected it would be. What I need to do is wait until maybe the end of January and test again. I want to be totally healthy and I will test four days after my last injection of 200mgs, while on 400mgs per week. I am not going to take any AI this time. Then, I'll wait another month and take Proscar to lower my DHT.
So this was not what I had expected, but the lingering cold is skewing the data, although some interesting results are still valid.
