I went to a PA who works with a MD here in the DFW area. The PA seems very aggressive in his HRT. He is a serious weight lifter and been using T for about 8 years himself.
I called the office today and got my results, total T 193, free T 32.3, estradiol 43 and total cholesteral 123. Everything else was in "normal limits". This is the first time I ever had this type of blood work so I have nothing to compare it to. Overall I am in excellent health and no significant medical history. I have an unbelievable family history of cancer, especially prostate and colon.
I am 45yoa 5'9" 200lbs about 16%bf. I work out 5 or 6 days a week. My weight is a little high due to a lax diet and a 3 month bulking program I just finished. I actually made pretty good strength gains, which surprised me when I saw my total T.
I am not "moody" but seem a little down, which may have more to do with a rough marriage. No ED problems but morning wood is certainly a lot less prevelent than it was 10 years ago.
I have an appointment with the PA tomorrow afternoon. I know he will prescribe T if I want it. He seems high on a topical that he himself uses.
I have done some research and read a lot on this forum. I plan on doing some more. However, I would be glad to learn from others who have been down this road. If any of you have suggestions or comments I would certainly welcome them.
Thanks in advance.
