The long story short, I'm 36, low T (248) low LH/FSH and an injured left testicle from
mma...it is half the size it used to be. I recently put on 30 pounds out of nowhere and feel like death, with no libido and iffy erections, this has been for about 6 months.
After reading much on here, I consulted with my general practitioner, who referred me to an Endo. 3 months of waiting to see him, and I see him this morning, full labs in hand. This guy gives me cold chills:
"I need you on 1200-1500 calories a day, and 6 weeks free of any protein shakes before I can draw blood, your obesity is most of your cause, and the androgynous test in your protein powder is causing your body to not produce T....also, you are way to young for TRT and I can not help with your testicle."
Sorry Doc, I don't think Metabolic Drive has a T booster in it....and I weigh 250 pounds, run 2 days a week, Kettlebell 2 days a week, and do Jui Jitsu 2 days a week...plus I walk 2-4 miles a night at work wearing 25 pounds of gear. I'm not eating 1500 calories a day and throwing out my protein
So, I call Low Country Male in Mt. Pleasant SC, just to get a feel for another opinion. My insurance wont cover this place, but it isn't that bad. This guy says:
"well, I need to get you in and run a full panel, check out the testicle, and we can talk about diet...you need to eat enough to not wreck your metabolism. If we start TRT it will be injections 2x week, anastrozole, and possibly HCG...we have to make sure your E is in check. If you have time, read the forums on T-Nation before you come in, there is some great info on there. I want to make sure we address the issues though."
Guess which one I'm going to see? Is anybody here from the area who has used Low Country Male?
