42 year old male - three T tests under 300 over past two years. with androgel script… 30 pounds overweight. feel like i have been low T most of my life. always soft body - never able to get lean muscle even in college playing hockey every day and lifting weights.
afraid to start androgel - what it I lose 30 pounds on adrogel and then wish to stop to see if my lower weight body will generate higher levels only to realize my own T system has been forever destroyed. The life long nature of this is the freaky part. And that you are damaging a vital system of your own.
Should I not try every natural remedy first before I go on a for life medical drug. I hate the idea of forever being tied to docs and scripts…
… but I hate being depressed, and no libido, and difficulty losing weight… so in a quandry. If I knew I could come off Androgel and test my own T down the road without it being damaged that would make this easier. But once you start that is it … for life… daunting.
So - any advice on these thoughts.
What if I lose 30 pounds, and do Maganesium and zinc supplements. That work at all?
Any ideas. Many thanks, jcm.
