High Estrogen level on Athletic 20 yr old...WTF MAN
I need some advice about my current hormone levels, and how to tweak them to the proper levels. If any experienced body builders or supplement gurus could help a brother out, that would be appreciated so I don’t end up having bitch tits AND a small dick.
Cut to the chase: I think my estrogen is too high, and I need some advice on an aromatase inhibitor, maybe Arimidex or 6-oxo. Also, been thinking about Androgel or something of the like. Once I do an Androgel course (6-8 weeks), am I going to have to be on HRT forever? Or if I am careful, is it okay to do with my doctor watching over me? I can get it, no problem.
Anyways, I noticed this year when I started working out, sometimes when I would be running on treadmill, really pushing myself hard (6-8 miles, 15-25 miles per week), I would get pretty emotional and shit. Like, while i’m fucking running, watching a soccer game listening to some gangster rap, i’m getting teary eyed due to emo thoughts. What I am thinking is that a lot of the extra testosterone my body is making, from the training, is turning into estrogen. And I can feel the effect of the extra T, for a while, at least. Somethings fucked up. Just to add: I am not just running every week. I hit the weights about 3 times per week and usually basketball for a few hours. I am @ the gym 5 days of the week, working out hard.
Here is my blood test from last summer. I am 20 years old, almost 21. I ALWAYS train high intensity. Last summer I was lifting weights/boxing/basketball 3-4 times a week, at the time of this blood test. Maybe even soccer training started, I dunno. Maybe the same estrogen conversion shit was going on last year. But this year I have been working out like crazy on a new levels, and so the conversion is happening even more noticeably. But here are the results:
Estradiol: 23.5 pg/ml
DHEA: 7.5 ng/mL
Estrone by TMS: 26.4 pg/mL
Total Estrogens: 49.9 pg/mL
The ranges were for 18yrs old males:
Estrone: 9-36 pg/ml
Estradiol: 10-42 pg/ml
Total Estrogens: 19-69 pg/ml
Free Test: 122 pg/mL (range: 47-244)
Test: 571 ng/dl (400-1080)
Any input would be appreciated. I will probably be seeing my doctor next week.
