46, Free Test 5.2, Testosterone Serum, 293: I ate a lot of beef the week before this one, my previous test 3 weeks early was 4.8 FT and 248 or so when i was on my normal diet. I’ve sustained some groin impacts from contact sports when i was younger when i was very athletic (football, basketball,etc.).
10 years ago was tested for fertility and my T scores were low, but didn’t think about myself, was trying to have a kid. Didn’t realize how it would affect physiology, muscles, etc. Just overlooked that aspect…MD at the time didn’t mention anything (i have since gotten a new GP).
So, i’m starting .5 injection 1x per week of Testosterone Cyp Oil. Felt great for a 5 days, then could feel it start to crash (least i perceived that…last day i was really wanting that next injection but waited). Not taking anything for estrogen yet. I am > 300lbs, 6’4", my blood work is good (164 Cholesterol, 74 Triglycerides, 49 HDL) but i have a hard time keeping muscle… I have already noticed a difference…i’ve lifted a few times, fairly light and feel much stronger, more energy…and i realize this is not really strong stuff…least that’s my perception.
New MD is into it, understands, and uses himself for health reasons…which i really appreciate.
Going to get another blood test in 1.5 months I believe, wondering if i should go ahead w/ estrogen blockers proactively.
Getting good Test, insurance covers it. Using a 22mm needle, that seemed to work fine. Filling the syringe is the biggest challenge.
