    blood test results -- very strange

    ok so i'm 31, have been on trt for about 16 months. I'm currently injecting about 160-200 mg total test cyp per week divided into two doses. I hadn't had blood work done in about 11 months so decided to get that checked again. I'm still awaiting results for total/free test, but here are results for estradiol, ultrasensitive:

    ESTRADIOL, ULTRASENSITIVE LC/MS/MS -- 2 pg/mL

    Reference Range:
    < OR = 29


    literally 2 pg/ml. i can't fathom how that is even possible. surely it's a mistake. I don't use an AI or serm or anything. I'd been injecting deca for about 5 weeks at 300mg (i've since stopped the deca) as well so i figured my estrogen would be sky high based on how i was feeling. I should also mention that I've been injecting boldenone at 300 mg/week for the past couple of weeks, but that should increase my estradiol if anything. maybe it's fake, idk. regardless, can anyone think of a viable explanation for this low number?

    As far as potentially estrogen lowering supplements are concerned, I take desiccated beef liver, resveratrol, zma, and eat a lot of white rice which has anti estrogen properties. but surely those weak supps are not enough to lower my estradiol to 2. Also I should mention I had randomly taken 2 doses of DIM before getting these labs done, so perhaps that had an effect.

    I will update once free/total T results are sent.

    anyone? is an estradiol level of 2 pg/ml on an ultrasensitive test unheard of?

    It seems you dont aromatize much.

    Is it your first e2 blood test?

    ok thank you. that's what i'm leaning toward as well. I have had an e2 test as recently as march 2016 but it was a sensitive test rather than ultrasensitive. My number was 31 pg/ml and that was with having been on arimidex for 2 weeks, so something has to be amiss with the most recent reading.

    update:

    I went to a different lab and had my numbers retested. These are the results:

    Estradiol - 6 (<=29)
    Total T - 2204 (241-1000ish(not positive)
    SHBG - 9 (10-50)

    I feel like those numbers are not even remotely viable with 200mg Test/wk at most. So the only possible explanation is that the EQ i'd been injecting somehow skewed my numbers majorly. What injectable substance could cause estradiol to read so low and Total T to read so high? Any ideas?
