2 pumps a day of Androgel is lower than the recommended stating dose. (most need 8) That’s a joke. You need a new Dr that knows what they’re doing. It seems like there isn’t an endo in the country that knows how to properly treat low T. You should seriously consider driving north to see Dr Crisler or find a local anti-aging Dr with a clue. If all you’re doing is 2 pumps of Androgel and nothing else that’s a big problem.[/quote]
To add to this statement, you may doubt that the dose is too small because you are feeling so much better. But that amount of exogenous testosterone you’re taking right now is only supplementing your endogenous testosterone and not replacing it yet. Your levels are higher, but only for a brief moment.
Soon, that low amount of test will shut down your natural production and your levels will be left lower than they were to begin with. Probably much lower.
More than likely, your doc is going to play the “test and adjust” game for a couple of years until your levels are barely in the lowest part of range with no HCG or AI.
If you want to find a good doc, you should do what KSman suggests to many new patients. Go to google maps and zoom in on your region. Do a search for compounding pharmacies in your area. Call and see which doctors are prescribing T+HCG+AI. Many pharmacies will have recommendations on their websites. You are really not that far from Dr. Crisler either. Well worth the trip if you can afford it. Good luck.
