TRT and Obesity

I started TRT about two years ago as doctor said it would help my weight (I was 290lbs 5’7’’). Two years later, I’ve noticed increased muscle mass, but now am 330 with diet and cardio 4 times a week, and noticed my fat redistributing to my stomach. Thinking of stopping TRT. Any ideas or suggestions would be helpful.

Post your labs bud. Read the stickies

Advice for new guys

Estradiol and why it matters

Thyroid basics.

Did doc checked E2?

Did Doc checked thyroid?

Did doc check lh/ fsh prior to trt?

Post your symptoms if you have any…

With you being over weight aromatization would be more of a factor.

How is your heart??

Sometimes when someone starts trt for the wrong reason we don’t get good results. Low T is a symptom and we should find the problem before ever going down this road.

Yes, thyroid problems can block TRT driven weight loss. We need the lab numbers and ranges.

Reading the stickies the best course of action for you. There is a lot of info there.
