First off I apologise if this log is in the wrong section or if anything I have said (or will say) is against the rules.
About me: I’m a 20 year old male who has been suffering from a vast range of low testosterone symptoms that were negatively affecting my life for about 2 years now. When i first found out what low testosterone was (which was about 5 months ago) I did a lot of research and eventually decided to go to the doctors to get a blood test. My results showed that my testosterone was 15nmol/420ng/dl. I’m aware this isn’t nearly as low as a lot of people but like i said i am suffering from the majority of low T symptoms, and on an age specific range 420ng/dl is the normal levels for a 60 year old man.
Anyway, when i saw my T levels i knew that there was no way the NHS would treat me as their guidelines state that they shouldn’t treat anyone with low T who has a T level higher than 360ng/dl. After a lot of research into other treatment options I decided to go private with balancemyhormones (a UK service).
Last friday (24th August) I gave balancemyhormones a call and they talked to me about various prices and a vague timeline of what would happen on the journey to getting treatment. Long phone call short I asked them to get me started on this process. The first step was getting another blood test done and setting up my account on their members portal as well as providing a photo of ID and photos of any recent blood test results. That evening I did all of this and payed for the blood test kit (it’s a finger prick blood test like Medicheck’s).
In conclusion to the first part of this log, I am still waiting for the blood test kit to arrive but will keep this log updated on my experience with balancemyhormones.
