Hello doc,
I am 28 years old. Male. My test results came back as follows:
DHT – 468 pg/ml
Testosterone – 523 ng/dl
TSH – 1.530
A month later, I got these tests done:
Testosterone – 683 ng/dl
Estradiol – 33 pg/ml
My issue is less facial hair. I have a good mustache and good hair growth on my chin and a thin line along my jawline. But I don’t have hair on my cheeks.
The doctor I consulted suggested I go for testosterone injections for a few months or go for a DHT cream.
Are my tests alright? Is my estradiol a little high?
I am afraid I have started developing small breasts. Also, I feel I get irritated quite easily sometimes and am OK the next moment(Mood Swings). Can high estradiol be the reason for my beard not growing?
Please advice.

Based on my research, your estradiol levels appear to be in the normal range. I read that the estradiol levels for an adult male should be between 25 and 50 pg/ml. You said your levels are at 33 pg/ml, which is in the normal range.

Sometimes the results from hormone tests can be slightly inaccurate. Your estradiol levels may have been normal the day you were tested, but since hormone levels fluctuate- your levels could be higher on other days when you are not getting tested.

Estradiol is also referred to as estrogen, the "female sex hormone." Here are a few tips on how to normalize your estrogen levels:

Try to maintain a healthy weight. Fat cells (especially those in the stomach region) produce an enzyme known as aromatase. This enzyme converts testosterone in estrogen.

Consider eliminating the following from your diet: alcohol, commercial dairy (which often contain growth hormones), wheat, soy (which is estrogen producing), and refined sugars (which can be replaced with stevia or xylitol).

Eat more cruciferous vegetables, such as: broccoli, kale, and cauliflower. These vegetables help the liver to metabolize and excrete (get rid of) excess estrogen (like estradiol).

Note: All thoughts and opinions expressed are based on my research and should not be mistaken for medical advice. I am not a doctor nor a pharmacist. all medical questions should be answered by a licensed pharmacist or doctor.

I hope this information and advice is helpful!
