Licorice Root to Lower T?


#1

Hey guys!
I am so grateful for all the great information in here!
I have blood drawn twice (total) 210 dg/dl and 230 dg/dl. Low free as well.
Both very low! BUT I live in Denmark and they don't like t treatments.
By the way I am 28 and in OK shape - bit overweight.

Now I am hoping to get treatment by lowering my T further....
I will eat and drink a lot of licorice root.
My blood will be drawn 9.00 so I will wake up 03.00 hoping these thing will affect my T negative.
Any other suggestions or experience will I really appreciate.
Greetings from hell (Denmark)

No advice?
I have one week before the blood test.
No sleep, lots of licorice root, maybe one day fasting??
No alcohol for me;)

Will fasting 24 hours or more before the test lower my test??

No sex, drink like a fish, eat soy, drink green tea, overtrain. All will lower your T levels.

Or, you could try to find out why your T is low and if it is treatable, pursue that. I don’t live in Denmark so I’m not sure what your options are.

I agree. It also doesn’t sound like you understand what you may be getting yourself into.

Thanks for your answer:)
I have had low T for several years tried everything!
Healthy life style and the right food. Very healthy.
The highest was 270 when I was 22…
So now I decided to go for T treatment.
I am going to get blood drawn by Endo next Thursday so I want my level to be as low as possible because doctors in Dk normally don’t want to treat low t.

Why Do you Think i am on the wrong track?
