I am posting several analysis that I have made.
The first one, a blood test on 25 may 09, testing testosterone, prolactine, Lh and FSH
The second, a full hormonal profile (blood and 32 hr urine) on 29 july 09
The third one, another full hormonal profile (blood and 24 hr urine) on 11 august 09
I made two full hormonal profiles as I messed up with the number of urine samples in my first test (delivered a 32 hrs urine sample instead of a 24hrs one) and with the diet before the test (I ate some salty foods).
The third test is a blood test on 31 october 09, after 3 months of treatment with my antiaging doctor.
In summary, a number of deficiencies were detected in the first full hormonal profiles. This lead my doctor to prescribe me:
2,5 gr testogel 10% / day
Hidrocortisone, 30 mg / day
Thyroid Armour, 90 mg / day
DHEA, 25 mg / day
Melatonin: 0.05 mg before sleep
Zinc, Copper, Vitamine B, Vitamin E, Vitamin D, L carnitine, creatine and aminoacids to gain weight (optional), Melanotan II for ED (optional)
With the medication, I lost some weight and felt that my metabolism was faster, but brain fog and ED persisted, with a slight improvement of brain fog towards the end of the second month of testosterone treatment.
ED didn’t improve at all, although when I tried Melanotan II I had frequent and strong nocturnal erections, even 40 minutes after going to sleep. Before, I had nocturnal erections only 2 or 3 times per week;sometimes less. Melanotan II also helped with the strengh of erections when I was aroused, but it didn’t help with libido or with daily erections. However, Melanotan II brings about fatigue, so I had to stop injecting it.
On my follow-up consultation of november, we observed that Testosterone was too high and that Estradiol had rocketed up. I was on a high dose of testogel without any aromatase inhibitors! The doctor changed my medication and I am now on:
-1.5 gr testogel 10% daily
-70 mgr day Armour Thyroid
-25 mg day DHEA
-3 mgr day Prednisolone
-100 mgr day Pregnenelone (for memory and concentration)
-1/4 arimidex 5 times a week, to review in my next analysis according to my estradiol levels
-Andractin gel 2.5gr day (for gynecomastia)
-Melatonin, 0.05 - 1 mg / day
-same vitamins and L carnitine for weigh loss.
-Melanotan II optional, but injecting it seldom due to fatigue side effect
-Somatropine: 0.15 mgs / day. I was on the drug for 2 weeks on december, but quitted for holidays as the drug has to be kept cold and I was flying out of the UK. I have recently resumed taking it.
I have to test again soon, and will adjust arimidex accordingly.
Overall, I feel that I am considerably better in brain fog issues; sleep has improved, although it’s not perfect, and so has general energy. However, ED and libido is almost the same.
The doctor said that if after 2-3 months with the new treatment I didn’t improve, then “it was something else”, suggesting the problem wouldn’t be hormonal.
As I haven’t improved my Ed with the treatment, I will probably consult with other doctors and I am going to try masteron as well. I already injected 4 times with no improvements, but I was on arimidex and my masteron is an estrogen antagonist, so I might have taken my E2 too low. Will try masteron again for 3 weeks without arimidex and see what happens.
If anybody has any comments on my analysis, I appreciate it. I feel that I should have gone for Clomid / HCG before trying TRT, but my doctor doesn’t follow that protocol. Maybe I will try that in the future.
