I have been on HRT for about 7 years,started out on AndroGel and switched to injections. It has been a good ride with a few bumps in the road. I battle with high BP and very high RB count, around 18-20 on hemoglobing. I went to General MD for an upper GI scope and when he saw my RB count he totally freaked out and it was at 19. I gave blood for over two years, every month, but my paper got messed up and now I can’t give, they won’t take it. So I’ve been off injections for around 5 weeks and going to get blood work today. My BP has dropped to 120 ish over 68-70, this morning it was 115 over 64.
From what I have read t replacement like andorgel don’t raise you hemoglobing like injections. What are your thoughts of replacing injections with AndroGel ?
