TRT Doctor in Kansas City Area?


#21

KSMan. I tried PM'ing you (twice), but it doesn't show in my sent folder. Let me know if you got it or not. Topic same as above. I'll spare the details for now.

Thanks,


#22

No docs in Lawrence that I am aware if. Only know a doc with a $1000 per year rate and labs are more again, but quite cheap if you prepay for them.

PM's stopped working here Sept 2012 - for everyone.


#23

Hey just putting it out there look thru my old posts to get my number and shoot me a text.


#24

Chubby1. I looked thru a lot of your old posts add didn't find your number.


#25

see the post where I post my personal data and labs.

Same question again: Looking for a TRT friendly doc. I am military so it will need to be a specialist for a referral. Preferrence of towns - Atchison, Leavenworth, St Joe, Lawrence, KC.

I am already being treated by a uro - 400 mg every three weeks. I'm in a massive trough after my first shot now. It was amazing last week though. Felt like my old self!

I have a referral to see a endo next month... hoping to find out he's a doc others have had good luck with. Looking forward to talking with him about more thorough testing and exploration for physical causes.

Having a varicocele embolization in two weeks - maybe that'll fix all of my issues.

My lab was 313 and I am not overweight, not diabetic and only 36.

Hey Guys,
I'm kind of in the same boat. I currently have a doctor, but he won't prescribe the medication, so i have to drive 30 minutes to prairie village every week to get my injections. If someone knows of a closer doctor (Downtown KC), or one that will prescribe, please PM me.


#28

PM's have not existed since September 2013

You will find something in this thread. I did not say that it would be cheap. Tell doc that I sent you. https://tnation.T-Nation.com/free_online_forum/sports_training_performance_bodybuilding_trt/young_man_in_military_starting_trt

Have you seen the 7 stickies in this forum ... the one about finding a TRT doc?


#29

Thanks, so this doc doesn't work through insurance?
Currently everything but my HCG are covered by insurance.
The only problems i'm having is that he won't prescribe home injections, so i have to go see him E7D.


#30

Renew Youth Centers put me on their program with a local Dr...home inj; test, hcg, AI...periodic labs, 1 ftf Dr visit annually. Claim your own insurance though and it's NOT cheap.


#31

Docs who do comprehensive male hormone work don't work with insurance because the insurance companies forced them out.

You can get these labs from lef.com. Get a membership for the lower costs. Will be less cost in April for the annual blood work sale.

and

I will work the lab reports with you. The costs are out of pocket and you cannot get insurance to pay for labs done this way.

Stop using kosher salt and get basic iodized salt.

Check oral body temperatures:
- when you first wake up, should be 97.7 - 97.8, higher is OK, 97.3 is a problem
- also check for 98.6 mid-afternoon

Also have your wife check her temperatures, iodine deficiencies are often a family affair.

Thanks for the beer!


#33

Thank you!! I just sent a reply a few minutes ago in regards to my daily vitamins/supplements. I assume you will get a notice and link to it. I'm not to familiar with how this forum works. Talk to you soon! p


#34

Please open a case thread for yourself. This thread is too generic.


#35

Whats a case thread? Just a thread about myself? I don't have any labs to show yet. Heres the guy I heard talking about glutathione.

#36

It is not very bio-available. There are better ways to increase it.
"Glutathione is only in small extent bioavailable to humans; its
introduction into the body using external sources is, in fact, scarcely
effective to increase its plasma and / or intracellular concentration.
At the base of its poor bioavailability
are the nature of the glutathione which, being a peptide, is the
substrate of peptidase and protease of the alimentary canal, and the
absence of a specific carrier of glutathione at the level of cell membrane.[37][38]"

Here are 600+ references: lifeextension.com/search#q=glutathione%20&sort=relevancy&f:@fhierarchicalcategory22137=[magazines]

One speaks of how selenium is critical in glutathione activities.


#37

hey Brian. are you still around?


#38

I am looking for a KC doctor as well(mine retired). I would PM KSman but I can’t seem to find where to do this.


#39

There are docs who write scripts and clinics that supply the meds at jacked up prices. What is your budget? You may have to pay out of pocket.

What has been your TRT protocol?

Please read the stickies found here: About the T Replacement Category

  • advice for new guys
  • things that damage your hormones
  • protocol for injections
  • finding a TRT doc <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Evaluate your overall thyroid function by checking oral body temperatures as per the thyroid basics sticky. Thyroid hormone fT3 is what gets the job done and it regulates mitochondrial activity, the source of ATP which is the universal currency of cellular energy. This is part of the body’s temperature control loop. This can get messed up if you are iodine deficient. In many countries, you need to be using iodized salt. Other countries add iodine to dairy or bread.

Well I have been off of TRT for close to a year due to my wife and I trying to get pregnant. I was put on clomid(by fertility clinic) only to get my sperm count up, which it did. Now there is no need for clomid. However I need to find a new doctor. My protocol was 75mg a week broken into two doses sub-q. In addition I was taking 25 IU of HCG twice a week. I responded well to this. Most doctors I have come across don’t know anything about the current TRT.
