    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...

    Worst case of trying out TRT for 6 months?

    The doctor you are going to see if ripping you off charging you $300 a visit. I agree with others have said you do not start using AI until you have your labs back and see what your E2 and other hormones levels are at. Also you should start very low on doses. I started at .25ml/.50mg every...

    Are All Endocrinologists Idiots?

    I agree my doctor does not care to read or study and learn. He follows guidelines that are years out of date. He too treats me on my labs not on how I feel. I treat me to how I feel. He thinks I should have TT around 500, but my natural TT taken years ago is closer to 900. I am starting to...

    Why do some people require high testosterone levels to feel good on trt?

    Depends on many factors. I had my TT tested when I was 60 years old. It was 1048. I did not have my FT tested at that time. When I was 66 I tested TT again and it was 848. I did not test for FT. When I was 68 I felt so tired and was losing my libido and had both TT and FT tested. TT was...
