I'm sorry, I don't consider the anti aging community an "entire group of medical professionals." I consider them a small vocal minority who's after one thing: $$$Originally Posted by fueledpassion
I go to an endo who's a published researcher in trt. I'll listen to his advice over the anti aging clinics.
And if 200 is a standard trt dose where you live, I would venture to guess there's a lot of anti aging clinics in your area...

The starting dose is often very cautious on transdermals, if it were me I would at least consider trying a dosage increase before giving up on the idea completely.
I don't understand the hate for gels... some of the best Drs recommend them..... also, more is not always more when it comes to test.
I've achieved peak levels in excess of 1000 and can comfortably keep a nice 700 on testogel (aka androgel), I just don't get why so few are willing to give them a fair chance. Seems like everyone on these types of forums just wants to score a script for T at 250 inject a week, which is not really TRT dosage.

If test levels were lower Im surprised they didn't administer a thyroid panel to check your blood levels for all adrenal hormone activity.
Did they prescribe to you an anti-estrogen...typically they recommend something mild to start like 10mg of tamoxifen.

That is the only reason I am considering an anti-aging clinic......to get GH The test I will just get from my doctor, (fully) legal. If I want DHT gel or caps? I can also get that pretty easy. Good legit GH is hard to find/get prescribed. I live in South Florida so there are anti-aging clinics all around the place....everybody is "old" down here.

If they give you GH w/o a glucose tolerance test, it's a complete money grab.Originally Posted by AnabolicHolic

The amount of people I know on 300mg/wk with a prescription could be counted on one hand.

Different labs have different normal ranges but for a man, hgb upper end of normal is ~18.5, upper end of hct is around 45-48.Originally Posted by pcn

Yeah, pretty close to mine. So far, that's really been my only side effect. My e2's been high, but I never had any symptoms...Originally Posted by EasyEJL

Well, easy and I just lowered our dose to bring them into semi normal range. I also started taking a full dose aspirin because my pcp, not endo, was freaking out. He said a hct of 57 is 'a walking time bomb.'Originally Posted by pcn
That didn't sit well with mrs napalm...

Yeah, all it takes is being a bit more dehydrated than normal, some significant event raising blood pressure short term and pop there goes a stroke. Work a few long days, abuse red bull to stay energetic and that alone could do it. There may be some dietary things you could do as well.

You guys would be terrified of EQ considering your phobia of RBC counts...
You want to talk about shortness of breath, lol. EQ trumps Test in the area of blood thickening.
