I use iodized salt often, not a hair loss issue, bald and embraced it since i was 25 lol.
I can get cold very easily though, especially feet, not sure if that's an indicator of anything.
My history is that I did a cycle of test and deca twice a year for 6 weeks, that's it, small amounts, I am very reactive to juice and would get bigger gains than training buddies dosing 3 times the amount I was using.
Typically a front heavy cycle of 1ml sustanon EOD for 3 shots, and half a ml of deca once a week, then sustanon every 4 days for 2 weeks, then 1 ml every 7 days and stop with pct from week 2 after last shot of sustanon.
TBH never felt I needed the PCT, missed it once because I couldn't get any, and seemed to need no recovery at all!
29th Jan 2012, was just finishing one of those cycles, although I had let this one run an extra couple of weeks.
Went out, few drinks, felt a bit ill, headache and a bit flu like, but took a nice girl back to mine and for the first time ever old floppy Joe!
And that was it, never been on form again since then.
Done restarts and got back to levels where I should have been OK, but just not there, and maybe 10% of the awesome libido I had on Jan 28th!
I am 51, regular trainer, although I have moved to bodyweight exercises and rings for a lot of my training, 5' 8 1/2" 176 lbs 44" chest, 32" waist low bodyfat.
For labs, where would I start? Been trying this for years and spent a clean fortune on labs.
At the minute I am just starting the nova part of your restart protocol, I didn't deem labs necessary before starting it, I was shut down hard from another attempt at TRT and knew what they would say.
I will get labs done at the end of your restart and assess the best way then, but where I am, for the labs you guys post I paid $600 US for labs like that to use in a consult with Scally.
Can't be dong those every few weeks!
Once your restart is complete, I will get labs and assess from there, I have also ordered some triptorelin and will try that if I don't have any success with the restart and post updates and labs for the guys on the forum to gauge that, if it goes that way.
TBH I was only asking about the percentage of guys who make it to that sweet spot in TRT.
