    TRT questions - Low SHBG and Anastrazole use

    Hi guys, I have couple of questions about my TRT protocol. 1) In my last labs, SHBG came back low (1 unit below normal range). What effect does that have on things like libido, EQ, etc.? Is it necessary to raise it? 2) Unrelated to #1... from time to time my estradiol has been high. Doctor...

    New hypothesis: Free E2 rant, E2:SHBG ratios, why does no one bother

    So this relates to all forums, Reddit, various YouTube videos from doctors, pretty much every internet information source. As of the past few years all the rage and focus is on FT. So much so that certain tests are referred to with derogatory names. “Piss poor”. That’s how important FT is to...

    Has anyone with low shbg tested sustanon in microdoses? Or testosterone microdoses + Deca microdoses like HRT?

    Hypothetically the elevation of T in the blood could be smoother with sustanon, so I would like to know if anyone has tested frequent microdoses with it. The idea of using small doses of test with small doses of deca would be to maintain good levels of e2, which are crushed by deca and have...

    TRT lowers SHBG

    My TRT SHBG is 16 which is kinda low. I've read TRT lowers SHBG, but by how much? Is is possible my natural SHBG is around 16? I don't have bloodwork that measured SHBG pre TRT

    Alternating Dosage Every other day on Daily Dosing

    Hi everyone, Just a theory I've been having. I started doing daily dosing recently and it's probably the best I've felt since staring TRT. I'm a low SHBG by the way (around 20). But my main issue is insomnia and I'm curious if this is caused by having a steady state of high test levels. So...

    High Free Test — Change Protocol??

    Hi everyone - relatively new to TRT. About 3 months. This is my first labs since starting. Paid for on my own so not comprehensive, but has Estradiol, Testosterone, Free T, and SHBG. I feel ok, not great. Definitely better than pre TRT I would say, but not optimal. I’d say major issues are some...

Seemed to work, and a set of labs found DHT was...

    Doc started me on HCG Mono - low SHBG

    Paradox TRT results, very low SHBG

    I started TRT 4 weeks ago. I spent a few months doing a solid research to educate myself before starting. I went so several doctors and quickly realised that there is not a single doctor in my country who is even remotely familiar with TRT. So my only option was to self-medicate. My symptoms...

    Question: With low shbg, can higher dosages and with only 1-2 times a week create sexual problems?

    Anyone with experience? With SHBG around maybe 18-20, and if u inject doses over 50mg, could that mess things up which gives you low libido and/or ED? If so, is this due to high free T and free E spikes or what is exactly going on?
