As per my endocrinologist I’ll be starting trt May 10th due too my hypothyroidism and low test.
182224


Last test results are above. My test has slowly been decreasing over years. I have only done one real cycle before and it was just test 500mg a week and anavar for 6 weeks. Did a full pct and bounced back to where I was around 400 total test and 7.0 free.
Anything I should ask for or do when I see the doctor ? She is my regular thyroid doctor and has been monitoring me for years.

Just aim for weekly injections, or some guys like twice a week...some docs use the outdated, once every two weeks, protocol which is no good.

Also, keep an eye on the AI prescribed. Seems like docs either go way too high, or too low on the dosage. Goal is just to manage E2, not crush it.

She went with the 200mg once every 2 weeks dosage of course. No ai at this time and do bloods in 8 weeks. I’m thinking of dosing 100mg a week though. The vials are 1ml vials

Old protocol as I’m sure you are aware. 100 mgs per week will be a good start. In the meantime find another dr that is up to date with TRT

It’s my endocrinologist that has been treating my hypothyroidism for years so she is the best to handle it I think. She is aware of all of my bloods and my condition. But I will dose it weekly myself and tell her that I am doing it.

When she orders your labs, is she checking DHEA, Pregnenlone, Vitamin D3, E2 and progesterone? There’s a host of others she she be checking as well.

best if you not tell her...buy some extra needles and do 100mg weekly, no need to tell her.
