Wanting TRT Badly


#1

How are you doing folks I’m 22 y.o 260 pounds and haven’t worked out in a year. My first cycle was cyanostane Rx by Ironmag labs at age 19 I want to get on TRT big time but don’t know how to go about. I’ve read symptoms of low t are fatigue which I think I have. Is there an age limit?

Some guys get into serious trouble with prohormones or something like a deca only cycle as these “fake” testosterones can have very adverse effects in some, making what appears to be epigenetic changes in gene expression and hormone systems can be broken. A few guys get similar effects from oral hair loss drugs.

At this point, instead of a stream of uninformed questions, take a few days to get educated.

Note that many young guys who come here with low T also have low thyroid function and that has most of the same symptoms as low-T and the two conditions have a compounded effect. See “oral body temperatures” below and evaluate your overall thyroid function.


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

  • advice for new guys - need more info about you
  • 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.

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.

The very brief and diplomatic version of what I want to tell you is that this reads as drug-seeking behavior and as such you are very much in the wrong forum.

I will spare you the longer version.
