My other thread was getting a little off-topic. A lot of discussion about private vs public health care in the UK and so forth. It is not so relevant anymore.
Anyway, if you want more background, this is the thread you can refer to:
After seeing several doctors and taking all the necessary tests, I am now to begin a certain treatment. The protocol is work in progress it seems.
My last test results showed the following:
Follicle stim. Hormone = 3.1 IU/L (0.27-4.20)
Luteinising hormone = 4.0 IU/L (1.7-8.6)
IGF-1 = 17.3 nmol/L (15.0-39.9)
Testosterone = 10.2 nmol/L (9.90-27.80)
Free testosterone/SHBG Ration = 28.3 (41-159)
Testosterone levels are too low as you can see.
Still, the doctors seem reluctant to put me on a full-blown TRT with hCG, AI & Testosterone. Initially they want to bring me up to 'normal' levels first.
So, the treatment I started with this week consists of 1500 IU's of hCG twice a week. The docs want me to follow this protocol for at least 6 weeks. Then we'll do additional blood tests to see the effects.
Personally I want to go for a proper TRT plan on a permanent basis, but they say that fertility is an issue. That is why they are reluctant to put me on a full TRT protocol.
