I found this chart and was surprised at how high the numbers are. I had my levels checked 6 months ago at 24 years old and my total T was 486 ng/dl (on the low end according to the chart) and, even worse, my Free T was 2.0 ng/dl (less than half the average of the 85-100 Age group). FML
Needs more people from different areas of the country.
^ Ha! My gramps got more test than you!
Higher than mine.
since when do gyms do blood work? go to a doctor.
mine came back at 405 and my doctor acknowledged I had low test. did a month of hcg + a month of clomid and it improved for a month or so but everything has returned to normal.
im going to talk with my doctor about getting on clomid for 4-6 months or a clomid + nolvadex combination therapy since the research ive been doing has shown longer term clomid therapy to be effective and more side effect free than jumping onto test replacement. got my blood drawn again today and i have my appointment in a week so we will see what what my #s come back at.
I figured you'd finally turned to HRT by now. I'd hate to rely on a shot to feel normal for the rest of my life. Don't blame you for trying other routes even if the chance of them working is low Good luck abomb
Why not just go with HRT?
I want to get my levels checked for the hell of it and and to see the docs reaction when I'm like "nah bro, I've never used any steroids, why?"
You doing this with or without insurance? How much is all of this costing you?
more like superdrol cycle = low test = his problems. he actually DOES have an issue.
thanks, we'll see what the doc says, ill be arming myself with studies.... in fact one of them about the 6 month clomid therapy was written by... well my doctor
its not as simple as "ok I have HRT, life is great now"
there are side effects to deal with and manage
and theres still a chance that clomid or nolva can correct my problem because its pretty much been decided that my pituatary gland is under producing LH
you stupid son of a bitch. I have multiple blood tests done with confirmation by my doctor who specializes in men's hormones that I have low testosterone for my age.
I'm guessing your a big dumbass?
without insurance however work has been paying for 80% of it due to a health savings account with the company that I have.
about $1200 so far.
Sticking a needle in your ass/delt/quad/etc every week for the next 60years is a big choice to make. If I were in Abomb's position I'd be trying all the shit he's done to get my body working properly again.
plus keeping up with hcg shots to keep my nuts from being non existant plus an anti estrogen plus the test shots lose effectiveness over time and ill be forced to continually up the dose
I'd be a statistical anomaly
didnt you say you had good success with nolvadex jeremy? im thinking about running clomid and nolva at the same time
A lot of guys have bashed the kid for not hopping on HRT right away but i'd probably be doing the same thing.
I would, needles aint shit but hoes and tricks
Yeah, that would all be a bit of a headache. So your low test is the result of a superdrol cycle? How old are you if you don't mind me asking? When did you do the superdrol cycle?
Nolvadex was better for me than clomid, but they are both shit in my opinion. The only thing that didnt make me feel like a 14 year old girl on her period was toremifene. But to be honest, I don't use serms at all anymore, and don't plan on it.
