I had a appointment with a TRT doctor today who had no problem prescribing Test Cyp for Self injections, HCG and a AI if needed for my low-normal levels. When I told him my goal was to be close to the top of the range I was surprised at the response. He said since I was 43 and could be on treatment for 40+ years that he would recommend starting slow and leaving plenty of room for later. He said that starting at the top of the range would reduce receptor sensitivity over time and we would have no good options later. I have not seen this type of thinking discussed much in the threads to far so I am not sure if it is true why people don’t seem to be considering it more than focusing on getting to the top 20% of the range.
As much as I want to get maximum benefits now for Strength/energy I do not want to limit my receptor sensitivity faster than needed. What he said seems logical - have you guys noticed having to continually bump dosage to get the same effect over time? Do you think being high in the range compounds the problem?
