I've been below bottom of scale on total testosterone since i was 35 (no prior steroid use, I was just a desk jockey who never exercised). I've hemmed + hawwed, and haven't followed through on looking at TRT yet. Estrogen was also high, but LH was ok (3 pregnancies since then). we're done having kids, i'm 40, and having to go pretty extreme to add some muscle. Also, I think I have thyroid issues (wasn't previously tested for it tho). my average waking body temp is 95.6, resting heart rate is 55. So I think I have a few things working agaist me reaching my fitness goals.
I started looking at my healthcare plan, I have United. They do apparently as a prescription drug cover Testosterone enanthate or cypionate, with a $10 copay. And thats about all I know at this point. I've heard that many doctors like to prescribe Sustanon 250? but i don't know.
Should I be making the jump? Any advice? my annual visit is due, so i'm both trying to figure what to talk to the dr about, as well as what blood tests to ask to be run. That way even if my current doctor is resistive about putting me on something, if I have all the blood tests already it will be easier to just bring those results to another dr. I'm on a PPO plan, so I dont need referrals or anything.
Also, just as a point of interest for any of you on it, do you have to go to the dr office for them to inject or do you just do it at home?
