Went for physical in February low test 265, went on axiron for 3 months,march-575,April blood test 450, doctor said I was in the normal range for a 51 year man, still sluggish, no sex drive, work out 5 days a week, just weights, am 6 feet,235 lbs,body fat % 20%. Need to lose belly
Also sent me to an

While on axiron can I run some test to elevate my test to the 800-1,000 range,
Trying to trick the doctor, these doctors don’t want me near the 800 and up range, not getting results I want an endrochronologist
He increasedthe axiron by one pump to 3 a day that costing me $240 a month
Test cyp for 12 weeks is cheaper
Any advice
