    Dihydrotestosterone is too high.

    I began TRT on November 27th 2014 using two tubes of Testim gel per day.
    This past week I had my first blood work done since beginning TRT. Here are the results:

    Total Testosterone : 748
    Free Testosterone: 15.34
    Estradiol (E2): 18.8
    Dihydrotestosterone: 133.2
    PSA: 1.030
    Total Cholesterol: 102
    HDL: 19
    LDL: 68
    Triglycerides: 74
    C-Reactive Protein: 0.2
    Hematocrit: 40.8
    Hemoglobin: 13.7
    Red Blood Cell: 4.50
    White Blood Cell: 5.7
    Total T3: 111.0
    Total T4: 7.7
    TSH: 1.920

    All the numbers look good according to the reference ranges except the Dihydrotestosterone is high. What can this mean? Does it pose any danger?

    My testosterone before TRT was 242. I'm 51 years old.

    Please list the ranges to put everything in perspective.

    DHT can go higher using transdermals. Its not a bad thing unless you are experiencing sides.

    You're fine. DHT gets a bad rap all the time. It's what makes you a man. Being over range is a non-issue like Ballsak said.
