    Monthly blood work-what else to add

    I am going into my 8th week of SubQ trt and have been ordering monthly BW to help get myself dialed in better and quicker. I order the Male hormone panel but want to add in a few more things bc I have been feeling sluggish, low libido, low energy, and half mast erections. I was thinking of adding Prolactin, DHT, and DHEA sulfate. I read that TRT will lower DHEA so I can expect that. Do you think its worth putting in? Any more tests I should add? I checked SHBG last month and it was low so I wasnt going to add it again.

    Check the stickies. I think the "Finding a Doctor" sticky has a list of initial and follow-up tests.

    This ^^. Getting good baselines is always a good thing. There's a sticky up there on DHEA as well. Remember, TRT takes time to dial in and for your body to find homeostasis. Eight weeks is really a short time period. Yes, it can be enough to become stable with your doses but not to realize all the subjective benefits of rejuvenated and balanced hormones.
