My test was low, 350, free test was actually kind of high.
Anyway, doctor wants to put me on androgel. I had hoped for the subQT test self inject, ai and hcg, but no luck. try this first.
Anyway, what I don’t get, my question is that doesn’t androgel just suppress you 1 for 1? IE isn’t your own production lowered by the amount of androgel you take, rendering it useless?
My doc didn’t seem to understand the question, he was kind of like “no, no, we want to raise this 350 to the 500s, so that’s where androgel comes in”.
Why do people use this stuff at all then if it is just 1:1 suppression? Unless they’re taking more than they produce naturally.
I’m thinking of an AI TRT only, but someone on here mentioned that wouldn’t work. My E was 35 or 37 on a 0-53 scale.
