#21

What is this StudHammer, tamoxifen again used for? is it basically another form of A.I similar to Arimidex??


#23

If she is legit she will send you for an MRI

FSH:1.66mIU/mL 1.5-12.4
That’s very low
Your balls don’t get enough signal to produce Test

probably the 4th doctor to call that normal!!
if i was given one chance to either get back normal or to fire all these fake docs…i’d def go for the 2nd one
i have got no options but to treat myself on my own!!
is MRI basically to see if i have a bigger problem like tumor or not? Thanks for your concern mate

The majority of doctors worldwide are TRT ignorant and pharmaceutical companies are to blame, big pharma runs these medical schools and big pharma doesn’t see profit in hormone treatments, so doctors are taught almost nothing about hormones or have no training in hormone therapy because almost nothing is written.

The studies have been slowly trickling out and old flawed negative studies are proven false, and still doctors cling to these negative studies even after they are disproven, fear is difficult to stomp out.

Testosterone is the only thing that can maintain muscle mass. Your doctor is missing your low estrogen and its consequences = osteoporosis, the word TRT specialist gets thrown around like a bad joke.

Any TRT protocol that’s going to be successful is one where multiple injections do to your SHBG level, SHBG will decrease after 6 months of being on TRT, it’s for this reason every other day injections is best and because there’s just no good reason not to.

360 ng/dL normal? For an elderly man.

To be called a TRT specialist you must earn that title.

Read the stickie about how to find a good dr. I followed the advice and ended up with 10+ recommendations. I was able to the interview and decide who I wanted to work with. I found an awesome Dr who oversees all of my care not just T, and accepts insurance. Do the legwork, it’s worth it.

Tamoxifen is a SERM which block the effects of estrogen in the breast tissue. They work by sitting in the estrogen receptors in breast cells. If a SERM is in the estrogen receptor, there is no room for estrogen and it can’t attach to the cell.

#31

Got myself tested again as you said @physioLojik
All of other lab reports are same as the above one othen than these
i remember when i was using bromicriptine to decrease my prolactin levels from 15.99 to 1.4…my tsh also went down from 3.3 to 1.39…after one month of leaving bromo…following are the results
(i didn’t feel much difference though while using bromo and without it maybe because my test levels were same all the time)
would appreciate if someone knowledgable like you could help
