    200mg TESTC surprising Test labs.

    Hi ,
    So i have been using 200mg TESTC / week for 8 weeks.
    Im pretty tall so i rounded up to 200mg instead of stand 150 for TRT style dosages.

    Was targetting a TRT dose maybe on the high end but I was really surprised by the Free T..

    Total T is about where i wanted it to be on the high end but Free T went up almost 400% and is off the scale by this lab...

    Are these results what you would expect?
    Just has me really surprised given how low the dosage is...

    Your drop in SHBG would account for some of the free T increase. The relationship isn't exactly linear, but it would definitely account for some of the increase in free T.
