I'm going to start looking into taking a low dose of testosterone. I'm bout to start trying research exactly How and what to take. I have an issue with having both low testosterone AND high estrogen. It started with taking a medicine (an opiate) for about a year and a few months. It made me gain a ton of weight and the excess of fat caused me to produce more estrogen, while the side effect of the drug cause my testosterone to drop sharply. I went from about 205 to 255. It caught me off gaurd. I didn't want to gain any more weight so I started hitting the gym pretty hard, eating much, much better, and running a good deal, but unfortunately, my hormones took a pretty big hit and by the time my body can sort this out in a year or two, I will have some double D's. This will reverse itself in due time,, but in the mean time, I'm f#@ked.
I've already started to get a somewhat bad case of gynecomastia. It was just a minor nuisance for about a year (before I knew what is was), but in the last 5 or so months, it's really started picking up. Taking my shirt off is just something I'm not going to do in public (yes, it's that bad).
So basically, I'm going to have to supplement testosterone on my own. Beside the nightmare scenario that I'm already living here (growing breasts), my energy is barely existent, no matter how much I work out and run and eat well. I've hit a complete plateau, no matter what I cannot gain energy, or retain the muscle mass to raise my metabolism, etc. Without the vital function testosterone plays, these things aren't going to change.
Any help, advice, links, facts ( even internet hearsay) would be greatly appreciated. I'm basicaly looking for just a basic testosterone supplement, a rough guideline on dosing, and an idea of how long to use it (and info on SERMs as well)
I wouldn't wish this on anyone. The faster I can get this going, the better my chances for not letting this turn into long term trouble.
If you read this far, I can't thank you enough!!
