Pretty darn good! I had the full dose of T gel today, and think it is doing me good.
I'm not exactly skinny, either. Let's say I could lose about fifteen pounds. I do have a problem with swelling in my feet and ankles, it's pretty bad at a full dose, and I'm 99% sure that it is aromatization, unless there is some other possible mechanism.
My thyroid seems to be under control, and I feel better with my fairly low dosage of levothroxin. I was wondering if I could do the same with the T; take a little bit of it, and counter the swelling with OTC things like DIM and grape seed extract, which seem to help.
The right way to go about this is to find the right doctor who orders the right tests, and makes out the right prescription. No argument. The problem paying for it while I get there.
I was hoping to start small, gather information, and find my way. I'm not big on self-prescribing drugs, but by reading up first, going slow, and monitoring my reaction, maybe I can do this without causing myself any harm? If 50% of a dose is all I can take, is it better than nothing, or should I only be looking at full replacement?
