Before I start my first thread I want to thank the owner for putting together this site, which is seemingly very beneficial. It’s great that someone can make such a contribution to people.
I have arrived at this point after reading several articles here and on other sites regarding the benefits of testosterone supplementation. I have a limited knowledge of this subject.
I am a 41 year old male. I live in Greece where it is legal to buy little 250mg bottles of testosterone over-the-counter. In the last several years I have started to develop ailments that are chronic. I have been diagnosed with recurring kidney stones, IBS and prostatitis. I also suffer from low energy, which may in part be due to my bad metabolism thanks to my IBS.
About 22 days ago i finally decided to try testosterone to improve my health. Before starting I took some blood tests. My goal is to develop muscle gains, improve energy and healthy generally. I would like to know if i need to take an AI or anything else to protect my health while i take T. I also would like to know if it seems right for me to take T for the rest of my life. Generally, I seek feedback from those who are well versed on this subject.
