Too high levels
Noted your concern. I agree. It is indeed a high level now. Beides, your Hb has gone up to 18 g. May i know what is your height and weight? What was the indication for Testosterone treatment?
When was the levels checked ( how many days after testo injection). Any history of prostate disease? How i your urine frequency now ?
You should skip the doses until Hb returns to normal range. After that, start with 200 mg once every 3 week.. It should be maintained between 400 to 600 ng/dl. Again the levels can be too high if you measure soon after the injections. The Testosteroone levels should be checked mid way between two injections.
It is essential to monitor the Complete blood count or CBC ( for Hb levels and PCV) and PSA levels for prostate.
I hope your testosterone replacement is being monitored by an endocrinologist or an XXXXXXX .
Thank you for the reply. Noted your history. I typically give SUSTENON ( mixture of Testosterone enanthate/cypionate/propionate) 250 mg once in 3 weeks. This regimen is good in most patients, but occasional patient complain of low libido by the end of second week. In such patients, I give 200 mg every two weeks.
100 mg weekly once is another option. However, this will result in 4 injections a month. Quite painful isn't it ? Hence to reduce injections, I typically give either 200 mg once in 2 weeks or 250 mg once in 3 weeks.
There is one more long acting Testosterone available now ( once in 3 months). It is called NEBIDO which contain testosterone undecanoate . 1000 mg once in 3 months.
In your case, you have erythrocytosis. And prostate status is unknown. Phlebotomy is only symptomatic treatment but the cause( cause is high Testo levels), need to be treated as well.
Yes I have used NEBIDO in few patients. However, most of my patients are on SUSTENON 200 mg once in two weeks or 250 mg once in 3 weeks.
yes, NEBIDO is an IM injection.
