Low Test (Male 32)

The thing is, you don't necessarily want to go on TRT if you haven't ruled out other variables first. Being on TRT myself and going through a long process to rule things out before committing, I will say that no doctor should be putting someone on test because of one low lab.
But, if you need it, I say dive in no matter what your age. The difference it will make is unreal and you'll wonder why you waited.

Ok I've got another question. Do you need to take an AI while on TRT on either the gel or shots? Thanks.

Not if you get your protocol right. Many of us have moved to twice weekly injections at a lower dose and avoid any e2 issues.

Insurance company denied the prescription unless I go see an Endo. Appointment tomorrow. This is why healthcare is so messed up in the USA. All I want is to feel normal again.

Just another update here - I had to get another test done because my most recent one was above 300 (it was 320) and my insurance company required 2 tests below 300. The third test put me at 145. Yikes.
I finally was able to pick up my prescription today my insurance covered all but $10 bucks. Here is to hoping I can feel normal again! Sorry to any guy that has to go through this process. What a pain in the ass.

Yes. I finally got a prescription of 2 pumps of 1.62 Androgel. I have been on it for 4 days now and I feel much better already in the morning. I still seem to crash out around 5pm, but I hear it takes a few weeks to build all the way up in my system. I am getting bloodwork done in another 7 weeks to see what my levels have gone up too.
I hear conflicting reports on if the injections or Androgel is better (for DHT). What do you all think?

To be honest I am not sure. I am relatively new to this and trying to get caught up as quickly as possible. I hear some people say DHT is good and some say it is bad. It is confusing.
Would it be better to get the injections? I worry because I have a 18 month old baby that wants to be held when I get home from work. It is 6-8 hours after I apply but it still freaks me out.
