I have low test and some symptoms that go along with it. I was taking bromocriptine, but I stopped. I didn't like it and my prolactin wasn't that high. I have been exercising, dieting and taking vitamins. I feel better now, but I know my test is still low. I want to try clomid and see if it can raise my natural production. What should I tell my endo about it if he disagrees? I also want to ask him for a complete blood test for reference later in life. Could someone suggest a complete list. I want to check as much as possible. I see him in a week.
If an over 50 guy went to an endo and presented that he just wanted to get back to 27 year old hormonol levels across the board, how would that Doctor likely respond? Any one with experience regarding that?
How do you know you have low test? Have you gotten a blood test?
Okay so I am just gonna ask for a complete blood work panel for reference later in life can someone please help me with a good list. I know most of the hormones to test, but what about blood cell counts, vitamins, minerals, prostate. I want to be thorough with it.
I mean I feel much better now I just worry about the cause of the low test and the effects on my health later on in life. I also worry about fertility. I mean I still have some of the symptoms, but in general I feel a little better. I think I am also gonna ask for a referral to a Urologist I think I should start getting other opinnions. I hope though that since my endo gave me bromo with only a slightly elevated prolactin level, maybe he will be open to the clomid thing if not then next.
If you had 3 blood tests with low testosterone, you should be getting TRT. If your endo isn't giving it to you, you need to switch doctors.
between blue lines.
The whole list cost about $3500
With proper ICD-9 codes (mine are on the bottom) and insurance, my out of pocket cost is $6.
That is under the old president, new prospective president is bend on "helping" me. I am afraid.
to have a base for later in life, but my endo keeps telling me nothing
is wrong. I know he is lying, because he keeps ordering retests as if
my levels are going to magically improve. This next visit may be my last one.
Yes they are normal according to medical standards for your age group. Docs are reluctant to jump on a test script, especially if they think you want it for bodybuilding. There is also the liability factor they keep in mind. The most he will probably prescribe is a test patch. There are other Docs that will prescribe other meds, you have to search them out and insurance is generally not accepted. Fortunately you have blood work that can be used if you see another Doc quickly. Insurance wont pay for you to blow up.
