Testosterone is important for bone health. Low T can lead to osteoperosis. Getting T into good levels should help with bone strength.

"abnormal bone growth" Is listed by nearly every manufacturer. these were just some of the first things that came up when i ran a quick search.

My baseline IGF is 139 ng/ml. On 1 IU of GH per day it goes to 299. When my total testosterone is 1100 ng/dl, and I'm off of GH my IGF level goes to 185 ng/ml as a result of increased testosterone. That's probably not enough to significantly impact cell growth let alone skeletal. Body builders have reported cases acromegaly from GH injections of 6 IUs or more daily. I don't know how high their IGF levels go, but I assume they are significant and unachievable on testosterone alone.

TRT is not going to make your johnson larger, or your bones thicker, though it may make them both firmer in a sense. And most certainly, your muscles will respond better to training.

I dont have any specific studies showing exogenous testosterone stimulating acromegaly, but I doubt medical providers would list it as a possible complication, if it were not true.
