I am looking for some ways to raise my T. It is probably in the low 100's or under a 100 based on my labs.
I have tried using T injections and T cream over the summer and it made me feel worse.
My adrenals are not fully supported, but I also tried cortef recently which made me feel worse. It did raise my testosterone about 100 points, but the side effects were not worth it. I tried using armour and cytomel as well during the process with no progress.
I know that I have to raise my T because it is having a serious negative impact on my overall health. My question to you is what supplements or what things can I try to do that will raise my T?
I am in the process of optimizing my digestive system to see if this will help. I am also trying to get into to a few leading hospitals in my state because I could have a serious illness that is contributing to my deterioration in health.
Due to my endocrine system being very sensitive, whatever approach I take probably will have to start small in something to see how my body reacts.
I have thought about trying Androgel in small dose. Do you think this is worth a shot?
I have also thought about maybe trying synthroid to support my thyroid and then trying a T medication in small dose. Maybe the T medication didn't work before because my thyroid was not supported. I have talked to Dr. M about which thyroid med I should try and he mentioned synthroid due to my immune system being overactivated from my old diet. He also said I would need to raise my T somehow so it could help me lose weight and so my body does not wither away.
I am very worried about not being able to treat my endocrine system at all which is scary. Just based on the fact that I cannot tolerate the T medications I tried so far or the adrenal medication, or thyroid meds did not help either.
I know that it is important to optimize your adrenals/thyroid before going on T medication, but what does somebody in my position do?
There has to be some ways I can raise my T maybe indirectly or directly. I try to exercise when I can and do get a decent amount of sleep. Diet is optimized.
One other questions is what can severe hypogonadism do to your body. Currently, I am having trouble with my vision, have had headaches/dizziness for the past 2 months, trouble with my balance and walking, coordination is off, frequent urination, terrible fatigue. I have suspected possibly multiple sclerosis but will be waiting for those results over the next few months. Could having at T levels in the low 100's or under a 100 maybe cause these symptoms. Or maybe low adrenal/thyroid causing this. I have had endocrine problems for years.
Please help. I feel like I am dying. If you can think of anything that could try or look into, please include it. Thank you.
