Best TRT plan??
Hello... Forgive me if this is a stupid question.
Is there any best way to go about doing TRT??
If I were wanting to start TRT and be on for life... Is there any plan that is thought to be most effective??
And also... Is it possible to get insurance to cover TRT?
And If so... How much does most TRT end up costing people?

doctor is not asking for co-pay, out of pocket $0.00
very extensive blood test--- $6/test out of pocket
testosterone, HCG, Arimidex, ArmourThyroid, Cytomel(T3), Cortef, out of pocket less $100/month
most expensive will be your
holistic tests and supplements, vitamins, minerals, may be $5000-$10000/year if you go hog wild
So, to figure out where you stand,
how about if you spend $6
look at my list of tests (and ICD-9 codes that pay for those tests)

But not all of what you listed there.
My testosterone was in the 200s last I had it checked... and I've got this really light feeling in my balls.
Like they just aren't working right.
Its very distressing... Seeing as I'm only 19.
Why were you including thyroid medications in the costs of the TRT?
Or is that any one of those things that could cost that much?
So should I just bring that huge Blood test list to the doctors and tell them I want that done?
How do you go about doing this?

You may have all kind of things wrong.
If you start with lots of guessing and little bit of testing your chances of finding what is wrong are less.
It is your choice.
If you have insurance, cost of treatment will be minimal unless (latter on) you will find out that you will have to go to type of doctors that do not want to take any insurances.
That is why I separated the costs.
You have excellent chance that rather basic help will be sufficient.
Still, staying with basics, you have to review at least
Very often adrenals and thyroid go first, you have to keep them in best possible order.
============================== ============================== ==========
If you have insurance or otherwise do not worry about costs,
I suggest that you:
get copy of my list
line up long list of doctors
ask each doctor to sign up my list into a script.
The other choice is, you can buy everything without script from available services.
Just cost little more.

you need to go to a doctor that specializes in at least mens issues, or a good endocrinologist. At 18, you dont need this to be being monitored by your regular doctor.
