I’m a 67 yr old male and have been on TRT using gel since 2014. For background, I’ve been weight training since I was 25 and am currently 5’9 at 176 lbs and 22% body fat. I absorb the gel really well and can get over 800 total T on just 3 pumps of 1% gel (androgel at 12.5 mg per pump). I won’t go into more detail as it’s irrelevant for my question but I just read this article on nebido and had never heard anything like this before.
I tried injections for a 2 month period back in 2016 and have never felt worse in my life although it probably wasn’t the best dosage. A physician’s asst put me on depotestosterone cypionate (Inject 0.5 mLs (100 mg total) into the muscle every 14 (fourteen) days). Total T, free and bioavailable all went down, SHBG went way up.
Anyway, I’m now going to a doctor who actually has some knowledge in TRT, as well as a colleague who specializes in it, so now I’m considering trying injections again after reading this article.
Any input on the article would be appreciated.
