I try to keep fit and care for myself. But, I am not like most guys here. I am well into my 60’s and certainly not a gym rat.
However, I do have few questions for those of a ‘certain age’.
I will not bore you with the details. Suffice to say that a few months ago while getting ready for some orthopedic surgery, I was diagnosed with osteoporosis. Where the heck did that come from? As part of the treatment, my doctor gave me a script for a bone enhancing drug Fosomax, advised me to increase my consumption of calcium, Vit D and magnesium and do more weight bearing exercises.
He and I were also curious why I developed this problem, so he did a test. Alas, Low-T raised its ugly head. My total T was 1/2 that of the minimum amount. Worse, my free T was 1/3 the minimum amount. Lousy even for an old guy like me. It seems that Low T is a big reason men get thin bones.
So, now I inject once a week 80mg a week of T subcutaneous.
What I want to know if other guys suffering from osteoporosis have had luck stopping and reversing the problem using T. Other than this crummy disease, I am in pretty good health.
