    DHT


    Asked my endo to check my DHT level today during a blood test. He said "why would you want DHT checked? That only needs to be checked if you're concerned about hairloss."

    W T F how do these people become doctors? Seriously.

    He agreed to check it though just to make me happy. It's like I'm treating myself, and he's just there for legal purposes.

    I do agree with you guys. My doctor is nice and very open to discussion and admits that he doesn't know everything surrounding hormones. That being said, I went back to him after dealing with 3 endos that knew absolutely nothing and would make me wait over a month to try to make an appointment. At least I can talk to him about what I want tested and why.

    To say that we know more sounds ridiculous, but it is true.

    Also, she had know idea what I was talking about when I wanted my LH and FSH checked. Lmao

    But, at the end of the day my doc prescribes and monitors/checks pretty much whatever I request. So, I'm not complaining.

    My doc just looks at me like I'm crazy, and agrees to the tests. He doesn't give a flying f--- about educating himself on new techniques/practices. I prefer to work with his assistant, who is very interested and is constantly reading up on new info and news concerning TRT.
