What is a syndrome? It is a observation of related symptoms/conditions.

It seems that we have a syndrome of hypothyroidism and subclincal hypothyroidism. Some of which seems to be related to iodine deficiency [ID]. So are TRT guys really more prone to iodine deficiency? Maybe we are simply asking the right questions here. If the general population is ID, then we can expect to see that in the TRT population.

The combined effects of low T and some degree of functional hypothyroidism is synergisticly bad, 2+2=5. The major hormone systems affect each other, a hypothalamus/pituitary function is not going to work well when one is hypothyroid. Mental function has compound problems from adrenal, pituitary, thyroid, testicular insufficiencies. Libido is a mental function.

I get frustrated by the collective reading disabilities or lack of concentration that requires that I repeatedly ask for the same info over and over. Lack of focus is a symptom.

Ksman, please forgive my lackoffocusitis and check out my latest ID info at

Hopefully last question for awhile. Thanks for all your time.

Your links are not working, use the url of a displayed page, you cannot copy/paste a link shown here.

Sorry, here is the link… But I believe I have it figured out. Did a little more Dr. Googling and found the answers.

Thanks your Time!

KSman, reading an old post you said you aspired to write a book on TRT one day. Any update? My guess is you would have lots of customers and may be able to help people outside this forum.

Need a little help please.

KSman,

I’d really love to have your feedback in my thread

Thank You!

Hey KSman, posted an update in my thread. Would appreciate you looking when you got the time: http://tnation.T-Nation.com/free_online_forum/sports_training_performance_bodybuilding_trt/19_and_possibly_low_t?pageNo=0#5598546

Just posted an update. Thanks

Good morning KSMAN,

I posted a blood work update here:

I still do not feel like a high T 27 year old should. I had relapsed into a 2 month period of 6-12 beers a day at night, EVERY night drinking period. I have been sober for only 3 days now and I am getting blood work done today around 11am. I suspect my estrogen will be coming back very high even with the .1mg of anastrazole every night. Please take a look at my blood work from 2 months ago and see if you can notice anything of concern.

Just a follow up to starting iodine replenishment if you wouldn’t mind in my thread

Hey KSman,

Penny for your thoughts?

Thanks!

Drinking every night.

I can only speak from experience…

When my 40th year rolled around, I realized I had an issue with alcohol abuse and decided to stop drinking.

Nearly a decade and many AA meetings later, I am still not drinking.

My life, my family, and my body thanks me for that decision.

The point here is this – I wish, at age 27 I recognized my issue. I’d have saved a good decade or so of screwing around.

The point I am trying (and perhaps failing to make here). Don’t take this as a downer, but a huge positive.

You are still young and if you figure it out now, you’ll have the lions share of your good years still in front of you.

Good luck.
