Hello...I need an endocrinologist with experience in gender variant patients. I am a transgender female, and I just obtained lab results of 139 T, and 383 pg/ml estradiol. Should I endeavor to lower my T further? My current dosage is 1mg e twice daily.

Brief Answer: Testosterone is still high. Detailed Answer: dear user, Hi! as per the protocol the testosterone levels in females should be not more than 75. normal range 15-75, so if you are still having masculine features predominating, then yes you must attain still lower testosterone levels. but before commenting I would like to know your free testosterone levels. Regards!

Dear Dr. M...unfortunately, my current PCP diid not forward this info to me. Indeed, I'm not even aware whether or not the free T was read. I will go to the office tomorrow and try to obtain a copy of the lab results. Thank you, "Connie Diane".
