    Update: got another message from my endo and my test results came in. See below.

    Good morning,

    See below for the testosterone results. At this time, I recommend holding off on testosterone for 3-4 weeks given the elevated red blood cells, then starting the new dose of 75 mg weekly, which I have sent to the pharmacy.

    Labs should be rechecked 2 months after new dose, drawn in the morning, in between doses. I have entered these lab orders in the LGH system.

    Please let me know if you have any questions,

    05/22/2020 9:54 Sex Hormone Binding Globulin 14 nmol/L (10-50 - )
    05/22/2020 9:54 Testosterone Total by LC/MS 502 ng/dL (250-1100 - )
    05/22/2020 9:54 Testosterone, Bioavailable 257.5 ng/dL (110.0-575.0 - )
    05/22/2020 9:54 Albumin (Testosterone, Free) 4.5 g/dL (3.6-5.1 - )
    05/22/2020 9:54 Testos Free 125.2 pg/mL (46.0-224.0 - )

    I'm no MD, but what she's saying makes no sense to me.

    I agree with the fellas here. Seems she has no idea. Go donate blood to drop the RBC’s and pick up some vitamin D3 & get some sun.

    Me personally, I would be so pissed at her lack of knowledge, I would take it up with someone. Just saying to stop the Test for 3 weeks is something she should be accountable for.

    Same here -- she clearly is just playing doc instead of being one. I would have been pissed at her response to your email that brought up legitimate questions yet her response was basically "I'm the Doc. Don't question me and since you did, you need to cut to 75mg/wk now instead of waiting to see your results>"

    If she's concerned about your RBC, go donate blood. Stopping the T for 3 wks will just crash you. You'll end up with crazy sides and lab results will look like shit. Find a new Dr immediately and then rip her a new one about how terribly uneduated she is in this regard and how she shouldn't be treating any TRT patients until she knows wtf she's doing.

    Can you elaborate on what you mean by dangerous?

    We live on an island of knowledge surrounded
    by a sea of ignorance.
    As our island of knowledge grows,
    so too does the shore of our ignorance.

    You know way more than I do about this shit but potentially severe emotional effects and the potential associated consequences from crashed hormones mainly. I've experienced something similar due to a severely reduced dosage over a period of about 8 week and practically didn't feel like living. Everyone's different but there is the potential for some disturbing consequences.

    I agree 100% with your assessment in regards to emotional/mental health.

    Thats helpful advice for OP.

    I was Just curious if there was something physiological I was missing

    Believe me, I’m still learning too.
