Limesod Checking In

I’ll try to post as much of my stuff as I can now but will come back later to finish.
In 2001 I was diagnosed with klienfelters syndrome XXY
Since then I have been getting my T checked every year.

Height: 6’4"
Waist: 38"
Wieght: 245 has gone up about 20lbs in the last couple of months
Currently have a full beard it grows decent no bare spots that are noticeable
Most of my fat is in my gut and love handles
Current meds: welbutron spelling?
My testes are tiny they always have been due to the klienfelters last doc said they were about 5-10ml volume
Last labs were on 4-20-15
Test total 187 range 300-1000
Test free. 42 range 47-244
Lh. 6.9 range 1.8-12
Fsh. 23.4 range 1.5-12.4
Psa. 0.25 range 0-2.5

My diet is not good so won’t get into that at the moment no real exercise unless you count carrying 80lbs of tools up 2 flights of stairs every day.

I had an apt with a urologist last week and this afternoon I will be going in for training and my first IM shot of200mg/1ml of test cyp. Then next Tues will get total test and hematocrit tested before my second apt on weds for a refresher on doing IM at home and another dose of 200mg/1ml test cyp depending on my trough is what he called it. Then after that weekly injections of I’m not sure what dose.

I’ve been expecting this for awhile but I haven’t done as much research as I should. I’ve started to go through the stickies it’s a lot of info to absorb.
At this or the next apt what additional labs should I ask for. ?

I will come back and fill in more. When I have a chance I just wanted to get started.

Better if you get informed with these stickies:

  • advice for new guys
  • protocol for injections

You should self inject at least twice a week!

Going to a urologist is a mistake because his viewpoint is very narrow. You need to be looking at these labs:

Many here have thyroid issues. Low thyroid function leads to low body temperatures, weight gain, lethargy, depression etc
Check your oral body temperature when you first wake up and mid-afternoon. Should be >=97.7F and 98.6F
See thyroid basics sticky for more info if temperatures low.
Have you been using iodized salt longterm?
