TRT Knowledgable Doctor in West Houston Area?


#1

Hi I’m new the the forum and hoping someone here can help. I’m looking for a Doctor in the West Houston area that is TRT knowable and takes insurance. I’m fairly new to the area and need help finding a good Droctor. I would prefer someone that will write me a scrip for self injection.

See the sticky listed below for finding a TRT doc.

You will need T, and anastrozole to manage near E2=22pg/ml and 250iu hCG SC EOD if you want to preserver testes/fertility. You need to know what you need because so many doctors are idiots.

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

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.

I can be a bit abrupt in my replies and recommendations. I have a lot of ground to cover as this forum has become much more active in the last two years. I can’t follow threads that go deep over time. You need to respond to all of my points and requests as soon as possible before you fall off of my radar. The worse problems are guys who ignore issues re thyroid, body temperatures, history of iodized salt. Please do not piss people off saying that lab results are normal, we need lab number and ranges.

The value that you get out of this process and forum depends on your effort and performance. The bulk of your learning is reading/studying the suggested stickies.

KSman thanks for the information. Yeah I understand doctors are idiots about this. I am looking for a new doctor because of that. My current doctor says my test is low but he has no knowledge about what to proscribe with the test. I am trying to educate him but I rather just find a knowledgeable Doctor.
