Newbie here, checked out rules hoping not to break any of them here. Also did a fair bit of reading about cases, issues, recommendations.
Long story short, 45 years old, healthy (minus some reduced thyroid function), physically active, gym, etc. Being prodded by a friend who looooves his TRT to get on it. Fairly recent blood panel indicates higher end of normal testosterone (I know, doesn’t in any way pass the scrutiny and details discussed here, just had a very general peak at that).
Friends main thing with TRT is huge gym performance increase. Which … sure, that’s a bit tempting. At the same time apprehensive about starting to mess with the endocrine system and possibly end up having a serious project going on trying to balance everything.
I travel a lot, live in an off-grid jungle, generally availability of advanced blood testing and things, not always the best. Also busy with work and running a large online community (about eyesight).
Wondering if it would be feasible / appropriate to retain some paid advice with a possible TRT program. I know, obviously. Not medical advice. Having reversed my myopia and dealing with people, fully aware of limitations. More though hoping to have a bit of a ‘coach’ type scenario to not be digging through forum posts and wondering about the quality of advice, just being able to do labs and get feedback, somebody who then knows where I’m at and what I need.
Possible? Please take it easy on me with criticism, just a question whether this may be a usable scenario. Thanks!
