Hello there everyone, I would really appreciate if you could help me a little bit, please. Thing is that have been researching online here as well as on other websites as well to get some information but as much as it seems, I’m not being able to find anything good anywhere online. Either I am not a good researcher either I don’t know. So, to give you a short history about myself. I’m 55 years old, 5”8’, my weight is 213 lbs and body fat % is 12. I have been using tren test deca and dball off and on right now for the last few years and for some years now I have been asking my doctor to check my estrogen and prolactin and my doctor simply refused to do it. that’s the reason why I have changed doctor and thankfully now I have done it. some years ago I have been having all of the signs that I am suffering from the low testosterone and so I have went to the doctor and I have checked it to find out that my t was 98 and since the normal range was from 76 to 650 the doctor has refused to do anything because, as he said, – it was within the normal range. I have been off the cycle and no I was not doing the pct as I do know what it is.
Well, I have been having absolutely no desire to have sex, my libido was very low and so my sex life was overall very low. I have also been tired, my emotional situation was very low and I was always having swollen ankles and many others. Well, I have then went back to the doctor in order to have it all changed once again and the results showed I had it over 2000! And although it has been nearly thrice higher the normal range I was still have the exact same issues which is super strange. I was feeling that there was something wrong and so I was asking for my estrogen and for my prolactin level checked but he always refused and didn’t wanted to do check them. then, after approximately one year or so he finally accepted and I have had my prolactin level checked out. as it was expected by me, it has bene higher than the high range accepted. Getting to numbers – it has been like 19 but this number is not being supposed to be higher than 16.
The problem is that after the results came, the doctor only wanted to send me to MRI and that’s it. I did went to the MRI but he didn’t wanted to listen to me. The MRI results said that I’m all fine and yet – the doc refused to address the prolactin problem. As I have said, I realized that this doctor doesn’t really want to help so I have switched to another doctor this year. This doctor has sent me to an endocrinologist and I really like this doctor as he is listening to what I’m telling him, I have told him everything that I have used, all of my symptoms and generally – everything. The doc has sent me for a blood work. I’m not going to get to numbers here as there’s a lot I should say but I can say that my total test is a bit higher, shb is too low, test bio is higher, free test is higher than normal, macro prolactin (total) is higher, fsh is too low and lh is too low either but the biggest problem is the estrogen as the range male adult is anywhere between 40 – 115 pg/ml but mine is 410 pg/ml!
However, as much as it the doctor said, the estrogen and prolactin aren’t as a big problem as the testosterone that is way too high! So what’s strange is that the doctor didn’t address the super high estrogen that is higher than a woman but he only wants to do something about the too high testosterone! It is obvious that now he wants to get me off the test as he says that it is aromatizing but I guess you all understand – I want to keep my test level higher, however I need to get the estrogen lower!
So, is there someone who can help me with this, please? I am not sure but I think that I need something like the anastrozal, no? I just need to get the testosterone a little bit lower (in the normal range) and in the same time I need to dramatically lower the estrogen amount and so, I would really appreciate if someone could help me in recommending what I should do in order to get all the things back to normal? Thank you all in advance and sorry for the long post.July 13, 2018 at 12:20 pm #3928
Hey there, I have to mention here something, on the macro prolactin part I have just read some comments that suggested *macro prolactin has not been detected. 50% or less of the serum prolactin precipitated following the incubation with the polyethylene glycol. The total number of prolactin is exceeding the highest limited of age/gender stratified reference interval. These are some results that are consisted with hyperprolactinemia*. It is saying that I need to monitor other medications in order to check if they are responsible for causing it all. I’ve got to say here that I am only using the blood pressure pill called Lisinopril and that’s it in except for the roids that I earlier mentioned I’m using in other post. Thank you everyone, would really appreciate if you could help me.July 13, 2018 at 12:41 pm #3929XylasheParticipant
First off, you’ve got to say how much of testosterone are you running right now? it does looks like to be about cruise now? I personally am using 1 mg of adex per week, split the day after pins on 500 mg per week. Cruise at the 0.5 mg of adex per week.July 14, 2018 at 11:35 am #3930KermanParticipant
So, what else have you been using when you have had the blood results pulled? That’s pretty important to mention… you know… and also, your testosterone level it is obviously high, however it is not as high to say that it is SUCH a big problem.
As much as I can guess, you have been using tren in the time that those blood results have been pulled, am I right? And also, low SHBG as well as false e2 reading too.July 14, 2018 at 12:20 pm #3931
Thanks for answers but you are wrong there… I was not using tren in that time, that is only your guess but as said you are wrong on it.July 14, 2018 at 12:42 pm #3932KermanParticipant
Well, I’m only trying to help you out, otherwise I wouldn’t have posted at all. Unfortunately, I do not really have very much of information to start off, this is the reason why to guess is nearly all that I am able to do right now as you have not even posted the dosage of the testosterone that you were using, so how can I make statements here?
When was the last time that you have used another AAS besides the testosterone? What I’m trying to say is that there has been some other compound that it is affecting those blood results and this is something absolutely clear. You’ve got to say the full list and the dosages you were taking, otherwise I can’t help you. When have you had your bloods pulled out after the last pin? I mean, how many hours have passed after the last pin until you got the bloods drawn?
In the end, if you really need to get some help then you’ve got to post more information here, otherwise I doubt that there’s anyone who can help you.July 20, 2018 at 7:59 am #3941
So well, as I have said earlier in my post, the estrogen level has been 411 pg/ml which is higher than a woman’s estrogen. And as I said, I wanted to break down of my different estrogens (my endocrinologist has said to me that I have been in the range and I don’t really understand wtf?!). whatever the case, I have finally got the results. The doc had to draw the blood 2 times and that’s because, as they said, they have not taken enough for the first time (apparently, 2 vials that they have taken has not been enough). Whatever the case, what must be done must be done so I have went back to them and they have taken 2 vials more once again. And now I am getting this from my doctor – estradiol, serum 14. Estrone less than 10. and I mean – that’s all. This is not saying if it’s ng/dl or if it’s pg/ml or anything in this matter. I really can’t understand what’s wrong… in addition, he has not even listed what’s the total number this time.July 20, 2018 at 8:13 am #3944SCANASTParticipant
To be honest, my recommendation for you would be to simply follow your physicians advice as he says and most likely – you are going to be fine. And yes, cease all the lab tests when you are cycling as it is important.
Oh yeah, another very important thing – please, stop blaming other people for the well established complications of AAS when using them. You had to know what are they, what are the risks etc. BEFORE starting with them. now after you’ve used them you’re trying to blame the doctor or whoever else but you should consider one very important thing – doctors are not being responsible to fix what you have broken on your own. It might be super hard or impossible to fix it all, but you are the only one to blame for reaching what you’ve reached now.July 23, 2018 at 11:06 am #3950
Well, thanks but I really did not asked for your useless opinion. I was asking for help to people who can help, those who have useless things to say can stay out of this thread. And just for reference – doctors are being supposed to be more informed than the average gym rat but I often find this to be wrong. lots of doctors in most cases are ignorant and they know nothing *pretty much as you* as he was refusing to pull the estrogen which was something obvious that there’s something wrong and I had to beg him to pull them as, again, there was something obvious something is wrong. in fact, he’s such an ignorant doctor that has told me he won’t show anything and after that, he was trying to cover his arse up by saying that it was in range (while it was EXTREMELY high!). and thereafter, he asks for *second blood drawn* and sends me these fake results with no lab name, no numbers of what they mean, what is the normal range – nothing!
And after all of this, you’re still coming here telling me that I need to listen to whatever the doctor says and I’m most likely going to be fine – no I won’t be fine as this doctor is an idiot! How can such an educated doctor send me for an mri less than 2 months ago, the results were absolutely all fine (they checked my pituitary gland) and now he’s trying to make me go once again to the mri instead of trying to address the real problem – my extremely high estrogen levels. I definitely won’t listen to this idiot doctor and to whoever who’s such a quack idiot. People are often worshiping them without even questioning things only because they are doctors and often these have fatal consequences. Lots of doctors are stupid and when I realized this I started to question everything and since, I have caught them on lies!
So I’m going to say this again – if there’s nothing that you can contribute, please stay off this thread, I was not asking for useless posts.
