    Scrotum application of testosterone

    hairloss and MPB are much more about genetics than hormonal but if you have that history of youreself or male family members it can be a concern. There are or a product called Nizoral that is OTC shampoo which has a fair reputation for preventing hairloss.

    Doc won't prescribe injections but offered gel:

    As far as costs got the stuff and I mean Androgel 1.62 is horribly expensive even with insurance picking up 50% I was paying $150 for a 2 week supply. That's just not sustainable for most any one. If you have a compounded cream available I'd consider that over something from big Pharma. Hair...

    Could it really be that simple, an iron deficiency the cause of all my problems...?

    When I've aggressively tried to raise my iron and I talk really only about Ferritin, which has been subterraneanan in the single digits, nothing good, or bad, came of my trying to raise it. When i've managed to get Ferritin in to the 30s or 40s, still very low by most standards, I wasn't doing...

    Why All Men Should be Tested with the Sensitive Estradiol Test

    I think it should be THE test we run but it's quiet a bit more costly than LC/MS that I know of and that can make it cost prohibitive for a lot of guys.

    Id still cut the dose or split it up to twice per day perhaps? Its an odd side effect though.

    Big Drop in T going from IM to Sub-Q. Why?

    Part of this whole very flawed discussion is right there for you guys....there's not one part of this that is linear in any way that you can derive an answer from a question such as his here. Its entirely subjective and even when one guy does carry through with some well thought out testing, its...

    Thyroid Iodine and acne

    You might notice too that when supplementing with Iodine, when you run a TSH lab that it will be quite a bit elevated, pretty common to see that in this scenario with Iodine. Just in case you were hoping to see your TSH come down and/or be less indicative of a Hypo condition. Have you tried for...

    how much extra is normal in a bottle

    The compounders that we see the most of, Empower and/or Hallandale proclaim to overfill by 1mL to account for any loss thru use. I don't know about any other sources, compound or big pharma though. Ive not seen it though my bottles typically run right to the amount that they're supposed to...

    Thyroid Iodine and acne

    I think would be a sign that you don't need the supplemental Iodine at least not that much.

    Very Strange Test Results

    Most people on this forum that get in to a situation like this just aren't as consistent with their dose and schedule as they purport to be. Then you're asking for help doing the math on dosing which makes it much more obvious answer in the disparity being user error. We can point to lab error...

    Why All Men Should be Tested with the Sensitive Estradiol Test

    I think it's a good option if things get difficult, it's a great insight from another angle, if it's affordable.

    Why All Men Should be Tested with the Sensitive Estradiol Test

    Possibly why I've been able to pull a higher Sensitive value multiple times from blood taken the same time as the ECLIA test.

    Why All Men Should be Tested with the Sensitive Estradiol Test

    So you saw a test or tests of yours that was inexplicably high or low? Because I've seen that in my own tests, part of why I run three tests, LC/MS/MS, ECLIA, and Free Estrogen, to try and have side-by-side comparisons.

    Why All Men Should be Tested with the Sensitive Estradiol Test

    You had a series of poor LC/MS/MS tests that you were able to prove, right?

    New thoughts on AI

    Whats lost in the static that yes it's over prescribed as a blanket inclusion as the big 3...Cyp/HCG/AI. The attitude though has over corrected to no AI, it's like the car is in a spin and this no AI crowd instead of turning in to the skid, turns the wheel the other way and flips the car.
