Also, am I right to desire an estradiol test result in the range of 20-30? I know its likely more complicated. But, would such a seemingly small change 15-20 pg/mL downward be beneficial and or/and important? If most men my age are in that afore lower range, I will certainly be persistent in attempting to attain lower levels.
1) Not sure. That is not a stubborn bodyfat area for men that I'm aware of.

Take a look to see some of the problems with high estrogen:

2) Yeah, that would be a good start. You are at the upper range now from what I've read.

Also not sure your urologist is the best person to talk to. It may be costly but Id look at talking to an endocrinologist. A urologist isn't going to have the best knowledge for hormone discussion.

Would personally talk to an endocrinologist, show him your test results and tell them you'd like to be put on a low dose AI. See what they think.
