    TRT Receptor Overload


    Is it a myth that men doing TRT for life can have their test receptors no longer respond and start feeling lousy as a result?

    If they are on to high of dosage it is possible because their receptors get spoiled.

    Most men doing TRT are in the 70 to 120mg. dose range. How is it possible for their receptors to become spoiled when there are all kinds of men out there doing 10 to 20 times the amount of test that someone who is doing TRT. Many of these guys I see in my own gym and they always seem to be "on" and they don't get overload? Something I have to question.

    Hey Matrix, do you have any links to studies showing that? I've never seen or found any scientific proof of receptor down-regulation, even though there is plenty of anecdotal
