What I Do for TRT Induced High Red Blood Cell Count

Testosterone replacement therapy can increase hemoglobin and hematocrit production beyond normal/safe levels, a condition known clinically as polycythemia. If you are on TRT it is important to be regularly tested for this condition, as it may increase the risk of thrombosis and stroke. Hemoglobin is an iron-containing biomolecule that can bind oxygen, and is responsible […]

A Reply to My Friend Who Asked About Testosterone Therapy

A friend recently found out that I was on testosterone replacement and wanted to ask about the therapy. Here is my reply, which I thought I’d share with others who may want an honest opinion about it.

Does Testosterone Replacement Improve Your Sex Drive?

Attention: As you can tell by the title of this post, it probably isn’t safe for work. It may seem a little off-topic, but as any guy who has been struggling with low T for a long time will tell you, the difference testosterone makes for your sex drive is profound. I’m just happy that […]

No News is Good News RE: Testosterone Replacement Therapy Update

I just had my testosterone levels checked again and am at 1,151 Total. I’ve seen “normal range” scales say different things, usually from about 240 – 250 on the low end to anywhere from 800 – 1,080 on the high end. I like to be on the high end most of the time, but will […]

Stockpiling Testosterone and Thyroid Medications

I’m the type that plans for the worst and hopes for the best. We have a pantry full of canned food from the garden, a gas generator for power outages, and long-term supply of clean drinking water and several first-aid kits throughout the house. That’s why I read this blog, which inspired me to write […]

How Much Is Gynecomastia Removal Surgery?

Luckily mine isn’t so bad that I would consider gynecomastia removal surgery at this point, but I do get the “sensitive” and “itchy” nipple feeling from time to time and I can feel a pea-sized bit of tissue on the right side. It comes and goes. Sometimes I’ll take some Nolvadex if I happen to […]

Preparing for Blast-Off – My Blast & Cruise Cutting Cycle

As I mentioned before I’ve been taking 100mg of testosterone enanthate per week for some time now. I think I’m going on six months. At the end of the week before my injection (on the day of my injection, so levels were lowest) my testosterone levels were 502 ng/ml. I’m thinking they probably fluctuate between […]

Three Month Update on TRT

I’m not sure exactly how long I’ve been on TRT now, but I think it’s been about three months. I haven’t done the blast-cruise thing because I ran into some other health problems (benign thyroid tumors that my doctor thought “could be” malignant at the time) that took awhile to figure out, and longer to […]

502 – My Lucky Number

After one month of testosterone injections of 100mg per week (.5 mil of 200mg/mil injectable oil) using testosterone enanthate my test levels are at 502. I wanted to take what was prescribed for awhile to see where that would put me. This was also near the end of the week so I’m guessing that is […]
