After being diagnosed with chronically low T-levels (<250ng/dl), my endrocrinologist put me on low dose Androgel (1%/5mg) which has been working well to restore energy levels and sex drive. I’m 6’, 200lb, 8%-10% body fat and not really after more size or strength, so I’m happy with the therapy so far. What I’m worried about is the testicular shrinkage that goes along with long-term testosterone therapy.
I’m familiar with HCG/Clomid protocols for high-dose recreational androgen usage, but what protocols could be recommended for LONG-term low-dose HRT? Are herbal products like Alpha Male effective enough, or will the pharmaceuticals be necessary? My doc is willing to prescribe anti-estrogens if necessary, but I’m on my own with anything else. Any ideas? Thanks!
