Thank you for your reply.
I saw the doctor yesterday and I'm frustrated with the outcome. The doctor wanted to try Clomid and Anastrazole before trying T, but when I asked about my low DHEA numbers he said he would go ahead and go directly to test. He prescribed me Androgel, 4 pumps daily, and told me to supplement my DHEA.
He ended up not giving me an AI though, and kind of blew me off when I asked why anastrazole was needed with Clomid but not with T replacement.
Then my insurance company demanded prior authorization to fill the Androgel script -- meaning they want the doctor's office to call them and convince them they should pay for it. For all I know I might not meet their criteria for "medical necessity." To top it off, I only have one business day before I go out of town so it's anyone's guess whether I get my Androgel before I go.
When I call Monday I may ask them to prescribe me for injectibles, solving the insurance problem, and raise the AI issue again. I regret that I didn't assert myself more about the AI, and ask about injection rather than gel.
I thought that this doctor would be good, since I know that he has prescribed AIs for people that had aromatization issues. But the way the practice is run is not very user friendly, and when I asked about my estradiol number, since it was in an unfamiliar unit of measurement, I got the dreaded "within range" answer. I guess time will tell.
