This is just subjective reporting only and I have no lab work to back it up but when I’ve tried subQ, I don’t feel “like TRT is working”. When I go back to IM, I feel “normal for TRT replacement”.
There has been some discussion here that some guys don’t respond well to subQ. I am curious if this has to do with the amount of body fat a guy has. Dr. Crisler is ripped compared to me. I have a fat belly. Working on losing it. But when I inject into it, the T just doesn’t seem to have an effect and I don’t feel good.[/quote]
subcutaneous injections have a slower absorption rate which helps keep estradiol levels where they should be. you said you haven’t done blood lab work, so why not take advantage of lef.org spring sale and find out for certain.
otherwise stick with what works for you. i have done subcutaneous injections for over a year and blood lab work shows everything is as it should be.
what kind of syringe did you use for your sub q and what syringe do you use for im injections?
I use 3 ml syringe with a 1.5" 21 gauge needle to inject IM. I inject into my glutes or quads.
I use 1 ml insulin syringe with a 1/2" 29 gauge needle to inject subQ. I have injected subQ into my waistline, love handles, and deltoids.
