Well I think the time has come for me to seriously consider starting TRT. For years I've had the same symptoms as many of you - lethargy, decreased libido and all the others that come w low T. I went to see an endo - who by the way is really into research and has many publications, mostly in diabetes, but a good portion of his practice is also HRT.
He gave me a battery of tests, ITT, MRI and a few others and the ITT showed multiple hormonal deficiencies. The dx was hypopituitarism (inb4 matrix says 'YOU NEED TO FIND OUT WHY). He bases the dx on prior head trauma - 2 skull fractures and approx 10 concussions. After doing a ton of reading, this is not an uncommon cause of hypopituitarism.
Test was 213 in feb. I am also GH deficient big time. This kind of confuses me because I'm still able to make gains with just hard work and a decent diet - no anabolics of any kind. He wants me to start taking GH, and has offered Axiron for the test deficiency - possibly moving to injections in the future.
I've done a ton of reading on Axiron, including the clinical trials, it has what I think are extreme plusses and minuses. I'm interested in everyones thoughts on the product. I did a search of the site and there's not much here.
