Yes I agree. I feel far too well, mellow, balanced, happy for those to be right. I kind-of-know when my levels are a bit zapped. I just slept for 8 hours and there's no way I'd be this tranquil on those levels tbh.

I'll get another test done!

Thank you

I agree entirely that these results are wildly in error and I agree the conversions.

Once I did a finger print Blood Test which failed and now I always go to a hospital/blood facility.

I know you and several others know how to convert but for the benefit of those who do not know and wish to know, CONVERSION TOOL AT REPLY 121.

Hugs to all.

hi
results this week.
Serum testosterone level < 0.2 nmol/L
Serum oestradiol level 1394 pmol/L

E level is somewhat high probably due to the patches falling off (showers and  during exercise) all the time and having to put new ones on. Im on a different patch to the original make as due to a change during the shortage we had in the UK, and I have asked them to put me back on the originals but they haven't as yet

I am on fortnightly blood tests for a month until my levels come up, and there has been some movement.

so 2 weeks after my last test my E has risen to 248 (intl) and T back down to 0.3 (intl) (this was on patches)

Next week I have another blood test to see what Gel is doing and start a higher dose with pills supplementing the Gel. I'm sort of being a test bed for various methods of HRT!

According to  the Doc at GIC the Jan level was 745 outside of the 600/500 level they want , but the last one I had was 575 but they will not look at that (one before high one was mid 500 /600) the high test was taken day after new patches . They want to reduce my dose , sent them an email but the doc looks like a "I am right " and will not listen.

Titrating very slowly with my estradiol valerate upwards and my tostran downwards. Latest results, taken yesterday:

Serum oestradiol 236 pmol/L

Serum testosterone 5.9 nmol/L

Serum total HCG level <1 iu/L

Everything else is in range.

I would be very grateful for comments. I am guessing you will all think the oestradiol is slightly low? I am a little light-headed sometimes and so I have just written to my endo to increase my estradiol valerate by another notch.

Tamara,

Not trying to tread on Pamela's toes but,

E2 3117pmol/L (Int) is 849pg/mL (US)
T at 400nmol/L (Int) is 11536ng/dL (US)

Those number are insane, I would suspect the test result before worrying that anything is wrong.

I can conclusively state that the finger prick test is wildly inaccurate as I did one yesterday the same time as the 'proper' one at hospital using a venous draw. The latter are the results I posted a few minutes ago. The finger prick came back insanely out of scale. Clearly useless for anyone taking exogenous or oral hormones. Be warned! xx

Thank you for your E&T readings of 236 (64pg/ml) and 5.9 (170ng/dl).

I am not a doctor but would agree that E looks on the low side. Good luck to increase it!

Hugs

Pamela  xx

My 13 month E level was 420 int'l and T the same at 0.3 Int'l. but I was still having no development, so my Endo doubled my dose! I started to see development within a couple of days!

My GP rang me today to say my 14 month E level had almost tripled to 1200 Int'l and T the same at 0.3, but my GP thinks they don't measure T below that, so it could be lower.

I see my Endo next Tuesday and we will reduce my dose and try to lower my level closer to the 800 int'l target I have set.

Hugs,

Allie
