    are testosterone levels something they normally check when you do a blood test or do you have to specifically ask for it?

    unless your showing some sort of symptom that would point to a malfunction in your endocrine system, they typically wont test for it

    I had always gottent he impression that older men had massively lower amounts of test, not 20% or whatever that is. Interesting stuff though.

    If you have health insurance it should be pretty cheap.

    i was on it before, but I wasn't working out at the time. I lost 30+ lbs and got my sugar levels under control and am now just using oral meds. I had no idea that insulin could be used for gaining mass.

    what time of day were you tested and did you fast? Keep in mind you need to do it first thing in the morning without any food on your stomach. If you do it later in the day your level will be a LOT lower than morning.
