Brand new here. Guess I'll start from the beginning.
52 y.o. male, morbidly obese: 5' 8", 280 lbs. 42% BF
I am in a profession which requires an annual physical so I need to get a handle on my health if I am to continue with my career. As a result, I went to my PCP for blood tests to establish a baseline and see where I was at and among several other issues (I'll get to those later), it was discovered my T was very low: 190 (241-827 ng/dl). I was also exhibiting all the classic symptoms of low T but never considered that and simply attributed my symptoms to age and physical condition. Anyway, doc started me on 60mg (2 pumps) Axiron daily and it initially worked very well. Total T went up to 711. I felt better than I could have imagined and actually WANTED to start working out again. (over 5 years since I touched a weight or worked out in any way). Well, that was six months ago (Dec 2014) and now the symptoms are returning. I have been doing extensive research since this all started and feel like I have a fairly good grasp on chemistry, mechanisms, symptoms, protocols etc. I do have a good PCP but he is not interested in pursuing anything past treating my total T so I am enrolled in a program with a popular and reputable online testosterone treatment clinic. Not sure if I can name it here. I'm due to receive my kit in a few days and am very excited to get started. It's a combination of the big 3: T-Cyp, HCG and Anastrozole if needed.
