I’ve tried it all: Gels, shots and pills. The gel was terrible. The pills will destroy your liver. The shots were OK for the first five years, but the weekly (or bi-weekly if you want to avoid the peaks and valleys) testosterone shots got old after awhile. That left only the pellets and, I gotta […]
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 […]
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 my mojo is back. Over the years I’ve heard some great stories by people who profess that testosterone replacement has replenished their sex drive, […]
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 […]
How so-called natural testosterone boosters, prohormones and other over-the-counter health supplements for building muscle may cause hypogonadism.
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
After a three-month waiting list (I live out in the boonies) I finally got to see the only endocrinologist within 50 miles. We did some blood work that I haven’t gotten back yet, and he said my thyroid was swollen so I have to get a sonogram done on that in a couple of weeks. […]
Between the Testim yesterday and today, and the HCG I’ve been taking – I feel great. I’m not back to normal yet, but I’m getting there and it’s not just placebo.
