If you work with your doctor you should be able to get the correct TRT dose that will make you feel good. Maybe not the same as when you were 21, but a significant improvement.
However, once you start adding other hormones to your TRT all bets are off. You could develop all of the same symptoms as someone not on TRT (low libido, ed, etc.)

Got a buddy who took a very minor dose of DBOL at like age 18 (definitely nothing enough to adversely affect his body in any way), and after he got out of the Navy, went to the Doc for some anxiety issues, and found a really low Test number, and is on 100mg/week Test Cyp. He says 100mg alone gives him wood all the time and is droppin panties like no other. So, even 100mg can be certainly effective. He feels overall better, and claims his anxiety problems have gone mostly away.

Natural testosterone production is only around 5-7mg per day. So 100mg of esterified testosterone should be a sufficient TRT dose for most people.

if things come back out of wack, you could consider trt, but remember drugs only treat symptoms and do not cure the problem. the stuff you mentioned can be fixed whether you have low or high test, just gonna take consistent and dedicated lifestyle change.

Low Vitamin D is VERY common and can reduce test productionOriginally Posted by Warwarrior
Lack of sleep reduces test production - Sleep apnea reduces the quality of sleep, so 8 hours may not be enough if you have it.
Doing squats instead of curls may help improve test production.
There are others but this should get you started.

OP, just get some bloodwork. Either through the site zeroshens recommended or through a local endocrinologist. If you have insurance you may want to see the doc. That we he can help you decide the best course of action. GL.

You don't. But before you make the decision to pin test for the rest of your life my advice is to get that bloodwork. Chances are high his test levels are fine, and the tests will verify.

I agree. For some people TRT is the only solution. But, I'm sure that a large percentage of the people with low test can bring it up enough with other methods. TRT for life is a big commitment. Even if you have insurance now, in 10-20 years, who knows what your situation will be.Originally Posted by Warwarrior
My recommendation is blood work first. Try lifestyle changes to see if that helps, and THEN TRT if you still have low T.

I am 50yo and started TRT in the second half of 2015.
It all started with a pain in the left nipple. and not feeling well.
They tested the prolactin and it was way high, did an MRI to the pituitary and was normal but my levels were TT:296 and the Free 3.8.
I was feeling like crap. I am raising 2 small kids mostly alone and with stress, work, marriage issues and the kids I was basically a walking zombie.
I have always been in shape but this time I could not even get myself to the gym, my cholesterol went up etc.
Did not want to get on it. I knew this would have been for life but it has made a HUGE difference.
Yes I do get lethargic every now and then especially on the day before the dosage. I am on .50 per week. Yes I know it's nothing for most people but it i s working wonders for me. E2 has always been low so no too much to worry there.
I am concerned about long term use and IF possible I would like to get off but ALL the docs are saying if I do it will revert to what I was experiencing before if not worse and that is a no no as I need to have energy and be active.
Right now I am in the gym every day and feeling pretty good. My levels are within range on the mid to high side.
One issue is too much sexual appetite. a real bummer when you have marital issues.
