Pulling together a history of HRT in preparation for switching doctors. Posting it here should it be useful to anyone else.

Note: with the exception of the October 21, 2011, lab, all labs were one week before the appointment where the dose change listed in the next column was made. October 21 was the appointment following the October 12 labs and my endo didn't trust the result of that lab (she has since declared that both the October 12 and October 21 E labs had to be defective in light of the Feburary 2012 result.)

* T and E were tested, but the doctor did not share those results with me. My information about my actual levels begins with my final appointment with my first endocrinologist.
