TRT/Change in Stool Color


I'm currently injecting 150 MG Testosterone Cypionate 200 (Watson) weekly. I've noticed that during the two or three days after injection stools appear more yellow in color and have a somewhat oily quality. I hadn't given this much thought until I happened to read in my recent T package insert that "pale stools" should be considered a severe side effect of the hormone.

Needless to say, my primary concern is liver. Most recent labs were about four months ago -- before starting TRT -- numbers for liver panel were in range.

Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

  1. who is prescribing the Test? start with them
  2. any other medications that you are taking?
  3. retest liver function
  4. make sure it is not just a dietary change
