Hi, i’m new to the forum and read the stickies. Ive been diagnosed with primary hypogonadism a year ago and have been treated for severe depression since then. Doctors have been telling me depression might have cause low t. Thyroid test are good so are morning and p.m temps. Iodized salt consumed regularly as iodized table salt.
Im 30 yrs old 235 lbs around 18-20% bf. I work out regularly since im 14 yrs old 4-6 times per week but took a one year break because im not motivated. I Cant seem to add mass and cant lose that little beer belly and love handles.
Im not yet on trt but recent bloods shows under range low t again. Doctor refering me to an endo.
Ive talked to my doc about protocol i want to follow and he told me they dont take e2 in bloods because its not in their trt protocol. I want some studies to back up that they need to watch my E2 and optimal ranges. They dont prescribe hcg either but i found a study from ncbi to prove my point. Looking for another doc is not possible here.
