Thanks. Of course, I know I need labs before they treat me. It’s 11 different tests. The confusion was I thought the labs would be included in their bogus $250 consultation fee. “Consultation”? For what?
It doesn’t help that the guys who recommended Defy couldn’t give me a straight answer about whether they charge for labs or not. I really think less of Dedy that they charge $530 BEFORE any action is taken.
I’m not saying there’s no way I’d use Defy. I am saying about I’m currently not that desperate. Also, it’s not like they’re much accountability if I have a bad reaction to treatment.
As far as paying for labs somehow else. I wouldn’t save much money. I don’t have insurance. Paying for labs and doctor’s visits the last two months has kicked my nuts in.
As much as I want the benefits of TRT, it’s a serious long-term decision and, apparently, highly expensive. I’m only 33 and I would have to accept that this is, basically, a lifelong commitment, however long that is.
Not only is it a long-term commitment, but toying around with hormones and drugs (e.g. AIs) is serious shit. It’s not the wisest move to make before making sure I cannot boost T naturally.
That’s my rant. I don’t expect it to be very popular given the forum, but I think a lot of guys, many who are very young jump into a protocol too soon because they want instant results, instant gratification, and that is not the way to live.
