I've been looking at getting my father on TRT. He is 62, has had a history of vascular clogging as he went through a triple bypass surgery not too long ago. His heart doctor recommended he get on TRT, too.
But its good to know that he should be at the 100mg/wk range rather than 200+..
With your fathers history, he can look forward to a dramatic lowering of cholesterol and lipid profile.
My cholesterol went from 270-190 after starting trt.
mine fluctuates, but is in the 130-160 range
When I started on Androgel 1% my doc started me on 2 pumps. My test levels dropped and the next visit he bumped me up to 4 pumps. Now I am well within the normal range.
and if you aren't absorbing axiron, you can probably forget about any of the other gels. On to injections I say.
I skipped the patches altogether. Injections are quick, generally safe (if you are clean) and eliminate any doubt about delivery of Test into your system.
Just got caught up on this thread it's easy to bring your RBC count down.
Give blood every couple months. This will immediately bring your RBC count down. If your on TRT or just constantly cycling I would suggest you be a blood donor. Have your count check after that and you'll see.
Easy fix and keeps you healthy... There are some people out there with conditions that their body naturally produces too much RBC and that is what they have those people do.
