    Return to normal TRT labs

    My doctor has me on testosterone cypionate 180mg weekly for trt and draws labs every 4 months. After my last visit I started test enanthate 500/wk and nandrolone decanoate 325/wk. How far out from my next lab draw do I need to return to the cyp to get my levels back to where he wants em?

    Thank you for any advice,
    VI

    Your hematocrit stays in range on that amount? You guys have generous doctors.

    Drop the Deca now if your Dr. orders the ECLIA type panel for your total T. Deca can skew your T numbers higher.
    As far as I know, this isn't a problem with the LC/MS type total T panel.

    Personally, as far as dropping your dose, I'd allow 6-8 weeks for T levels to drop and everything to normalize.

    Would there be any testosterone dosage in TRT that would not harm blood levels, like a dosage that resembles the normal testosterone production that a healthy man produces?

    He started me on cyp 200mg/wk. Lab came back at 962 serum test. Range is 264 - 916 at this lab. He just told me to drop it to 180.

    I get annoyed at doctors that go off numbers not symptom resolution. I run my total to 1100-1200ng/dl

    What you asked for it basically trt. It replaces what your body lost over the years as we age.

    Issue there is everyone metabolizes differently. Trend anymore with good docs is 40-50 mgs twice weekly. Interesting note I was cruising from November till now at basically 250 test, 250 deca . Donated blood and hemo came back at 14.5 which would put hema at 43.5. From past experience I don't get much of an RBC bump even at double the dosage (500-500). Some guys on the aforementioned cruise dose would have thickness issues.

    Interesting note, so the genetic disposition for elevation counts a lot.
