Age 57, training for 35 years, lifting, cross fit, endurance athlete: cycling, male, taking Androgel since I was 50. Cycle 6-8 months break, and then restart. Blood levels of T= 700-1000 while on Androgel. Off of androgel blood level 350 or less.
Last July I was Dx with a DVT right calf. No clotting issues, no family history, all blood work negative for clotting. Never had a problem with clotting before this. No known leg trauma.
My question: Does Androgel use, testosterone use cause DVT’s.?
My physician primary, uroologist, are telling me it did.
I love how I feel on testosterone replacement . Currently I am off of it and my workouts and my recovery suck.
This is my first post on this site so I would appreciate your feedback and help. I am not sure if I posted in the right place or not. My apologies if I got it wrong.
