26 year old male
i would say im an endomorph bodytype
I just had some blood work done a few weeks ago and was told i have low test and would have to start TRT soon. Before i start they just took one more sample of blood to test for hormones and my pituatory gland, not sure what that means. i havent had my actual results back yet but i have been told i have low T and have to do TRT.
But after those results come back im suppose to start treatment. The nurse told me my options were gel, patch or injections. i would prefer injections. ive been lifting off and on for 4 years but havent lifting in the past 4 months and have lost alot of gains i had. i tried to go back but i cant lift without getting to tired and i just dont have the energy to push. I eat a clean diet and i cant lose weight for anything. I used to could lose a pound a week but now i cant even lose that in a month. Ive tried messing with my macros and my routine. ive tried doing more cardio. I find myself having problems in my sex life too. It feels like a chore sometimes and my erections arent strong as they used to be.
i guess my questions are:
What should i tell and ask my doctor before starting treatments?
What is the typical doses for starting TRT?
What will i feel when starting treatments?
When will i start to feel more energy again?
How should i approach lifting again?
Will it help me lose weight?
Will it help me gain strength back?
Im not looking to be a Mr Olympia but i would like to put muscle back on like i use too. Im new to this and i hate that i have this problem at 26. Any info will help thanks alot!
