I went to see my cardiologist to discuss my high blood preside since being on Androgel.
Well, he is apparently not a fan a TRT. He said that it can increase the size of the heart, just like it causes other muscles to grow.
After the lecture, he did say that there are some studies that suggest TRT can actually help reverse heart failure in some people.
Your damned if you do and your damned if you don't"..............
I don't understand why TRT can have these negative effects. If someone is low or testosterone deficient, and TRT brings levels to a normal number, why would that have a negative effect on the heart?
Regarding my HBP, today it was 135/93
Next week a stress test and echo then if it's still high meds, or stop TRT
