A big thank you to all those that contribute on this board!
I visited a Dr. and had a talk about low t since I have many of the symptoms. She granted a blood work and it showed a hemoglobin level of 170 g/l while t was at 8.6nmol/l (247 ng/dl).
She said that the hemoglobin...
Went to donate the other day and my hemoglobin was 20.3. They didn’t let me donate. They recommended I get doctor’s orders to do therapeutic phlebotomies weekly until my numbers were within range then go back to doing bi-monthly or quarterly donations. Anyone else had to do this?
I can’t find anywhere to do therapeutic phlebotomy in Oregon. I tried donating blood yesterday but my hemoglobin was 21... that’s like 63 hematocrit. Because it’s so high I went to the walk-in clinic at the hospital where my PCP works. They saw me and all they did was try lecturing me on the...
I've found myself in a jam. Hematocrit is not really high, but its high enough to be causing symptoms. My iron is low, and so is my copper. I inject 100mg a week, and wondering if I cut that to 50mg a week, would that help without raising hematocrit even further. Im at 48% and and hemoglobin is...
I was on 250 units HCG 2x weekly. I added a third injection bringing it to 750 units weekly. I feel better as far as improved orgasms and sensitivity. I also inject 14mg Test CYP EOD sub-q. Just got my labs back. Please have a look
I am on TRT and recently my doc sent me to blood donation center to reduce my hematocrit level. My level was 50.1
My total testosterone level is about 900 something.
Hemoglobin(16.7) x3 = 50.1 ( Hematocrit )
So I went to donate 1 pint blood yesterday. My question is how often can I donate...
Suppose a guy has slightly elevated hemoglobin and hematocrit. As a result, a protocol change is made to an overall lower weekly dose and smaller, more frequent injections. No blood donation or therapeutic phlebotomy.
Assuming the protocol change would positively affect HGB/HCT, how long would...
I've been on TRT for about 2 years and have always been slightly paranoid about my higher Hematocrit and Hemoglobin. Hemoglobin usually runs around 18 (13.2-17.1) and Hematocrit usually runs around 52% ( 38.5-50). I've already done the donate blood / crash Ferritin thing and so I no longer...
Looks like Maca can reduce hemoglobin and hematocrit when elevated. Any chance it’ll reduce elevated levels in TRT induced erythrocytosis?
“Ovariectomized rats showed significant (P<0.05) increase in red blood cells (RBC) count with administration of Maca-GO (Tables (Tables3a3a and and3b),3b)...
So after mass research I am pretty certain what my issues are. I have had pretty each skin that’s been uncomfortable. Along with chest pain, and it seems with the itchy skin it’s having a high hemocrit. Is there anyway to lower it? Should I just take a break from my testosterone?? I only do labs...
I donated blood about three weeks before my most recent labs. I still have high RBC, Hemoglobin, and Hematocrit. My doctor has given me a script for phlebotomy.
200iu HCG Monday/Thursday

Hey searched for some answers in the forum, but couldnt really find a specific one.
The thing is that my blood pressure was fine around half a year after I started TRT but the last 1-2 months my blood pressure is often around 130-145 systol and 80 dia, pulse 65. That is quite scary.
Hemoglobin is an extremely important protein. As an essential part of red blood cells, it delivers oxygen to all parts of the body. In this post (Part 1), we go over health benefits, roles, and harms of hemoglobin. In addition, we discuss hemoglobin lab tests, normal values, and reference...
1 began trt around September 2016 after a long battle with the symptoms of low T. Tried everything under the sun prior to no avail.
My basic question is, can a man have blood ranges all within rage on the CBC any still feel very unwell due to thicker more viscious blood? I...
I've been on 100/MG weekly for almost 3 months. The most recent blood work came back and showed the following:
MOST RECENT 12/9/2016
FREE TEST: 25.9
PRIOR TO TRT:09/15/2016
FREE TEST: 4.4...
