I’ve been on TRT for a while, I started off with Testim, then Androgel as I became resistant and allergic to them I eventually ended up on 200/2week which I split up to 100mg/week. There was no AI or HCQ prescribed to go with it. Eventually I was bmped up to 300/2weeks which I split up to 150/week. However, that ended up putting me at TT 1092 and another time TT 1137. So I was backed down to 100mg/week. However this didnt seem like enough and my TT was in the 450 range the day before my before my next shot. Today I went to a new doc who also doesnt believe in AI or HCG and claims that it isnt necessary.
He believes I should blast 200mg/week for 8 weeks then do bloodwork to see how my body responded. He believes blasting it will get my body better able to handle the testosterone at the receptor level. I also have thyroid and vitamin D issues, but both of those are in the normal range now. He claims he has done this with all of his patients and seen excellent results. He says most have to come down to a lower dosage per week, but that the blasting sets up the body for a lower dosage with less conversion. He believe HCG can be avoided by monitoring LH and that LH will determine whether or not my dosage comes down to prevent atrophy if I so desire. It sounds completely out there compared to what I’ve read here, but his theories do sound quite interesting. What do you guys think?
