    Got bloodwork done

    So, I just had bloodwork done to test my free Test and my total Test.

    My results show that I am in the middle of the normal range for people within my age group, which I'm guessing, makes it highly doubtful my doctor will put me on TRT.

    For those that are on TRT, how low did your test have to be for your doctor to consider you a candidate for TRT?

    Thanks

    If you want to be put on TRT, why not artificially lower your levels?

    I'm 36 and my test is 313 (250-950). My doctor told me today that my test is fine. What a dick! I am currently seeking out private HRT. Sucks that insurance won't cover it but it's legal and they know what they are doing. I've heard some pretty good horror stories about doctors prescribing test with no AI's or HCG....doing monthly shots and so on.

    If you feel fine and dont suffer and symptoms dont do it. If youre just trying to get on trt so you get test youre better of just cycling a couple times a year. What people dont understand about trt its a life long commitment and its something that should be thought out very carefully.

    First time I got tested it was 325 and the next time I think 288. First doctor was a urologist. He gave me one shot and said to re-schedule 2 weeks later and report the affects. Obviosuly there were none, not sure the amount he gave me. Second doctor said I was too low and started me on TRT the same day... good luck man

    I'm 38 now first time I think I was around 33 or so.

    edit: last check I was close to 1100....

    I would say your in the low normal range. my $.02 worth. I'm no doctor.

    At 23 you should be way higher than that!

    The question is how do you feel? Are you doing fine in the gym? Your body might function fine at that level. Everyone is different.

    That's the problem....I don't feel fine. I still look good, but feel worn the fuck out, libido is tanked, I haven't slept in 3 1/2 years, joints hurt, not able to cut weight like I use to, I'm tired all the time despite getting enough exercise and eating clean. I'm pretty much tired of being told that it's all just a part of getting older.....quality of life at 36 years should not be mediocre by any means. I’ll do what ever I have to do to feel the way I did when I was 20.

    That being said, I know what you mean and I've given this a lot of though, I've read everything I could get my hands on, I've asked a lot of questions....spoken with a lot of people that are following a HRT protocol. Pretty much all of them are really happy and say they are feeling great.

    Im kinda the same way but not that bad. libido is good but it goes in waves. I have been with the same woman for 20 years so that could have something to do with it. Im 43 and would like a boost too but Im gonna be real cautious how I approach it.
