I was talking to my doctor and he seems reluctant to change my testosterone injections from once every 2 weeks to once a week. He is concerned about heart attacts.
I always had my testosterone shots once every 2 weeks but I was tired and lost muscle mass during that time. It is been a month now that I started to inject testosterone once a week and I feel more alert and less tired but it seems my doctor wants me back to doing it once every 2 weeks. How can I go about this?
These are my values last August 2012 and last February 2013:
Readings of Free and Total Testosterone done in August 2012 receiving injections of 100mg once every 2 weeks: Free Testosterone: 300 ...August 2012 Total Testosterone: 20.2 ... August 2012 Sex Hormone Binding Globulin [SHBG]: 61 ... August 2012 Hemaglobin: 139 Hematocrit: 0.419
Readings of Free and Total Testosterone done last February 2013 receiving injections of 100mg once a week: Free Testosterone: 661 ...February 2013 Total Testosterone: 22.3 ...February 2013 Sex Hormone Binding Globulin [SHBG]: 22 ...February 2013 Hemaglobin: No inquiry was done. Hematocrit: No inquiry was done.
Thanks Nelson for your help. Jose Canada
Response from Mr. Vergel
If he prescribed 200 mg every two weeks, you can inject 100 mg per week. All you will need is more syringes which the pharmacy can provide without too much hassle
By the way, what units are you values in?
