    Why less frequent injection intervalls with high SHBG?

    Hi all, it seems common that with high SHGB, less frequent injection intervals - once per week - are recommended. I couldn't find anything on the reasoning behind this; why does a higher dose of injected test apparently lower shgb levels to a certain extent, and why wouldn't a "steady state"...

    Clomid and high SHBG

    I had symptoms of low T and the culprit a year ago was probably my high SHBG. My lab before HRT: test: 871 ng/dL estradiol: 38 pg/mL shbg: 78.4 nmol/L Free: 10.9 ng/dL Bio: 256 ng/dL An incompetent doc at lowT99, put me on clomid (.25 mg 3x a week) and anastrazole (.5mg 2x a week) then had me...

    INSANELY low estrogens, SHGB a bit high, normal total test

    35 years old, 1.81. cm. 70 KG. I'm basically panicking with these results. I'm not on TRT btw. I'm seriously considering it. My free test level results will be given to me next week, but I can guess that they must be very low considering both my high SHGB and low estrogen levels. What is the...

    Increased SHBG and not testosterone or estradiol is associated with bone loss and fractures

    This makes sense since higher SHBG would result in lower free estradiol which is probably the main factor in bone density. They do not mention the relation between free testosterone and bone. Progressive Temporal Change in Serum SHBG, but not in Serum Testosterone or Estradiol, Is Associated...

    No libido! decent T, high HT, high SHBG, low Vit D

    So here is the deal. I have low libido and not really sure why. It started a year ago out of the blue and then I took one arimidex for 3 days to see if it'd help and I think that messed me up more. I saw a doctor and she doesn't really know how to solve this either. I'm 40 - in shape with low...
