I am 40 years old. after months of going to the DR trying to find out why i was so tired and had 0 sex drive we checked my T level. it was 209. I started on androgel which shot my blood pressure up to 165 over 130. then I did 100 MG injection 1x week for four weeks. next blood test for T count was 289. then 150 mg shot 1x week for 4 weeks. then new blood test 320.
this made me feel much better but not normal. then Dr. gave me 200mg everyother week for 1 month and nothing changed from last time. labs 330. then wee did 300 mg everyohter week for 1month and labs were 389. now I am in my current month, 300 MG week 1, week 2 100mg, week 3 300mg week 4 100mg. I have to say that my life has changes so much and I cant believe I have been suffering for many years for no reason.
I am about to go order my new labs. from everything I have been reading it looks like I should be checking other things like E2. My Dr, she seems pretty open to letting me try things that might help. she is young, 33 years old. I want to go to my next visit as educated as I can. what other levels should i be checking? the only thing I have noticed is my nuts have shurnk a little.
