I'm 31 years old and believe I may have low T. I'm new to my area(Virginia suburb of DC) and don't have a Primary Physican that I see. I've read all of the stickies and now taking my time to absorb it.
-I have trouble losing fat and gaining muscle despite exercising and eating a decent diet.
-I experience pronounced soreness, slow recovery & improvement from exercise. (gauging against peers I've worked out with throughout my life.)
-Low energy levels and varied mood.
-A general "foggyness" and ability to focus.
There is one doctor very close that advertises for TRT. The cost would be $1200 for the first visit (not covered by any insurance) plus $300 for follow-up visits. This seems excessive to me, and potentially shady. (Though could swing it financially if it was necessary) If anyone knows an area doctor, particularly one that wouldn't immediately dismiss my concerns due to my age, that would be much appreciated.
