There is one alternative...get your T levels checked.
I just did about 2 months ago and although my results were in the "normal" range for someone my age (54), I was in the lower end of the spectrum.
On a scale of 1-10 i'd say I was about a 2.5 at best.
Since then, and only 5 injections later, progress has been astounding !
Stronger,leaner,improved recovery rates,improved sleep quality,improved mood and libido.
You could check with your own conventional doctor although I didn't. I looked up a doctor specializing in intergrative medicine in my area. They specialize in bio-identical hormone replacement. Had a comprehensive blood analysis and was on my way with the protocol as follows,
.8 ml testosterone cypinonate (200mg/ml) self-injected once weely
1 mg tabs anastrozole taken 3 times per week
60 mg pregnenelone daily
25 mg DHEA daily
At our age, progression is difficult to come by even if doing everything right.
I've been killing it with my nutrition and training the last 2-3 years with little or no results other than maintenance. This was the last piece of the puzzle and it has been quite remarkable to say the least !!
