    Cypionate could be in very short supply very soon

    Here is a very brief comment from one of the largest providers of Cypionate in the world. Industry in India, the world’s No. 1 producer, is already raising the alarm. Umang Vohra, a top boss at Indian pharma giant Cipla, told the Financial Times that most companies are on track to start...

    Order your syringes now

    I just received enough syringes to last me a year. Why you ask? China is the major manufacturer of medical supplies. I use Easy Touch syringes and they are made in China and when I ordered mine I asked how long can supplies last without getting anymore for say three months. The answer was...

    The perfect needle/syringe combination

    Taking the advise of many members on this forum I started using the 27 gauge 1/2" .5ml insulin syringe/needle combo. I think this is the perfect size with no pain no blood and the syringe quickly fills with Cypionate. It also injects very fast and I could not feel the needle in my thigh. I...

    Why do we aim for such high troughs?

    I know the current most accurate calculator to use is the Tru T and I did use it. The Tru T calculated my free T at just over 3%. I have read that the Equilibrium Dialysis method is also suppose to be the most accurate. Using the Dialysis it shows 1% of free T. That is such a huge difference...

    Why do we aim for such high troughs?

    I have high total T at the trough (841), but using the dialysis method my free T is only one percent (84) My E2 is a little above midrange, but my doctor thinks only about total T and never discusses free T. I told him I am more interested in free T, since total T is doing nothing for me. I...

    CDG & DIM - what's the consensus these days?

    I used both for a short time, until I watched a You Tube video and did some more research and decided to stop using both. From what I learned is DIM increases estrogen and decreases testosterone. Same for CDG. I agree they are both a waste of money. I use stinging nettle root 3X a day and it...

    When you have normal T levels

    I had my TT tested at age 66 years before I started on TRT. My results for TT were 841 at age 66. My doc says what time of day did I test? I said early morning due to having to fast for other tests. He said your testosterone is highest in the morning and lowest at night. He said testosterone...

    FT using TruT vs Dialysis methods

    I have no idea which method is the most accurate. My doc only goes by TT and does not think FT is important. I keep mentioning I would like my FT higher, but he keeps telling me that my TT is too high. My natural TT when I was 66 (three years ago) was 841. Last year it crashed down to 321...

    FT using TruT vs Dialysis methods

    I actually had both methods tested at the same time. I had the dialysis and the standard non dialysis done. The result are very close. the TT using LC/MS was 837 reference range 264-916 and the standard tests that LabCorp uses shows 896 reference range 264-916. Not much difference. The FT...

    FT using TruT vs Dialysis methods

    I recently had by TT using the LC/MS-MS method and got 837ng/dl. I used the Dialysis method to test for FT and got 8.4ng/dl. Normal range for TT is 264-916ng/dl. Normal range for FT is 5.2-28.0ng/dl. This equates to 1.5-3.2%. My FT is only at 1% using this method. When I use the TruT...
