Having a Hard Time Finding a Doctor


I was diagnosed with having low test two years ago and do not know how long I have had this problem. I have had symptoms that could have been low test since before I was seventeen years old and now I am thirty-one.

I am having a hard time finding a doctor that knows what the hell theyâ??re doing. I have learned more from reading here then from the doctors that I have seen. I am on Cypionate 1ml every ten days. When tested at five days after injection test level was 648. However, at day six I start feeling tired, depressed and over emotional. Some of the articles that I have read have said something about needing to use Nolvadex with Cypionate.

The tests that have been run are few, but I do know that off test supplements my number was 32, yes 32. The doctor did do an MRI and it showed no pituitary lesion or mass. My numbers are:

Transferrin 215mg

Ferritin 89 NG

Iron 30MCG

Prolactin10.3 NG

LH .6 MU

FSH 1.6 MU

Can anyone point me to a reliable and experienced doctor in the Dallas area and/or point me in the direction of what tests should be run, possible concurrent medication and medical studies, etc. that I can take with me to my next appointment?


Did you see the recommendations in the 'finding a TRT doc' sticky?


1 ml of 200 mg/ml T-cyp every 10 days is a good starting dosage, better than what many clueless docs insist on, but administering half of that every 5 days would almost certainly leave you feeling a lot better.

Do read the stickies -- you will learn a lot in a hurry. And welcome.


Thank you for the help, and I will read stickies 'finding a TRT doc'


Ok been doing some reading do I need to be on a ANCILLIARY COMPOUND?



How much reading have you actually done?


Actually reading, every thing I can find I am reading, but at this time I think that I am a bit overwhelmed. So rather than finding answer I am finding more quest gens. I do not have a mentor that I can ask, and doctors that I have seen have been useless. That is way I posted on this web site to try and get some answer.


There really is no YES/NO answer. It all depends on your blood work. Some are fine without AI meds, some need them. Blood tests will tell you if you need an ANCILLARY COMPOUND or not.
