Most men on clomid struggle to feel good mentally and sexually, it will be a mistake if you decide on clomid. Clomid is known to possess dual actions as an estrogen agonist and an estrogen antagonist, it also blocks estrogen in the brain in order to increase LH.
You need hormones, not drugs and we know drugs come with consequences, drugs change the body from a natural state to an unnatural state, that is always bad.
You’ve found something that works, stick with it. Eventually as you get older you will need TRT as your testicles may not always function optimally.
Consider getting HCG through Empower Pharmacy, it’s cheaper.
You could try it, if for no other reason than to give yourself a break from hCG. Some have used Clomid successfully for years. I would just go to test and use hCG when ready to start a family if I were you. Clomid screws with your brain and is not really a good idea long term. See if you can get away from the brand name hCG, maybe find a compounding pharmacy.
A seasoned TRT specialists, not in this world. An improved body composition is a sign of improvement in health in my book and with it comes increased energy because the body is more efficient. You are in the normal ranges, for an 80 year old man.
You need a doctor that treats symptomlogy as well as labs and any doctor that says he thinks the increase in energy is in your head and not because testosterone is in the high normal ranges doesn’t have a brain god gave an ant!
Donald Trumps is scoring higher testosterone then you are and you’re 46 years younger, stop trying to plead your case with this doctor and seek someone already in position of knowledge. As it stands now according to the study below, your doctor is only causing you harm and is dangerous to your health whether he is aware of it or not.
It’s painfully obvious that all your doctors have a huge bias towards TRT and any study you provide will not convince them of anything.
These data showed that a testosterone threshold of 440 ng/dL was associated with increased Framingham 10-year CVD risk in middle-aged and elderly men. Poor sexual performance, decreased morning erection, and loss of libido had an impact on the testosterone threshold for CVD risk. The threshold level was higher in men with sexual dysfunction.
Testosterone (T) has a number of important effects on the cardiovascular system. In men, T levels begin to decrease after age 40, and this decrease has been associated with an increase in all-cause mortality and cardiovascular (CV) risk. Low T levels in men may increase their risk of developing coronary artery disease (CAD), metabolic syndrome, and type 2 diabetes. Reduced T levels in men with congestive heart failure (CHF) portends a poor prognosis and is associated with increased mortality.
Studies have reported a reduced CV risk with higher endogenous T concentration, improvement of known CV risk factors with T therapy, and reduced mortality in T-deficient men who underwent T replacement therapy versus untreated men. Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) has been shown to improve myocardial ischemia in men with CAD, improve exercise capacity in patients with CHF, and improve serum glucose levels, HbA1c, and insulin resistance in men with diabetes and prediabetes. There are no large long-term, placebo-controlled, randomized clinical trials to provide definitive conclusions about TRT and CV risk. However, there currently is no credible evidence that T therapy increases CV risk and substantial evidence that it does not. In fact, existing data suggests that T therapy may offer CV benefits to men.
