TRT and injuries

  1. TRT and injuries


    For those that have or currently on TRT, have you noticed an increase in injuries since starting testosterone?

    Any info helps, thanks


  2. No and I find I heal/recover in half the time. I think the trick is to remember your age and learn proper form when you are at the gym.

  3. No..i actually recover faster, heal better, and Trt for some reason took away the pain I had in my knees and even my back feels better

  4. If you have not addressed your adrenals first or evalauted them properly this may be a reason. If cortisol is low TRT will make an existing low cortisol worse

  5. i've noticed injuries are more prevalent (probably cause i lift more than i should) but they tend to heal faster. Thing i did notice was that i used to get sick quite often especially when my boys went back to school and came home with it. Since i started TRT about 18 months ago, i've noticed i haven't been sick once and at least one person in my family is sick most of the time. I think my immune system has gotten better.

  6. I just feel like I'm mr glass now, I get injured all the time and the injuries just dont heal that well. I take 100-140mg of test a week and no arimidex. My estrogen levels are fine but if I quit all together, the last time I did that my test levels were around 100 total and E2 was around 5

  7. We need to start looking big picture. Endocrine system is not just testosterone and estrogen. It is thyroid, parathyroid, insulin, cortisol, aldosterone etc. Ever see the orchestra only tune up a few sections,but not all of it? That is essentially you are doing

    Look on the bright side mattrix your T is right where it needs to be so your issue is not T. Time to start looking elsewhere for the cause of these issues.
    I'm with The Matrix lots of other things to check.

  10. Hormone doctors are specialists who do not think like generalists. Why they miss the mark addesssing symptoms not the root cause.

  11. I get bloodwork done all the time and everything always checks out fine, I have no clue what they could check that could find out what is making my tendons and ligaments brittle. I read the responses above and those all get checked except maybe the cortisol and aldosterone

    That’s the problem everything check out “fine” often not adequate for your body. You know How many times I hear “I’m normal, doctor says” health care system is a broke system
