The Quest for TRT

I arranged a GP appointment to talk about my possible low test, had to cancel and rearrange, and struck lucky. Late stand-in woman doctor was brilliant. She went on about how men should not be left on the scrapheap and it's only fair to give hormonal help if possible. Very sympathetic. Straight away arranged a full blood test including test levels. She wants a full battery done, liver function, diabetes, cholesterol, thyroid, inflammation, vitamin D, loads! Got the bloods being taken first thing friday morning so quick service all round.
 
I'll post when I get the all important results!

    Good luck mate, sounds like you may have a sympathetic GP.

    Bloods done. I stayed up as late as I could and got up extra early, maybe four hours sleep total, then walked about 2,5 miles to the surgery fasted. Totally worn out so hopefully low levels were found today. I've also skipped training this week, both weights and BJJ. Nurse said I was dehydrated, really struggled to get a vein and eventually found one on my right hand.
     
    Results back by tuesday, fingers crossed!

    Results back. NORMAL. ****s sake! Self medication it is then, what's a good protocol for someone who just wants to stay lean, keep what he's got and recover well from training which includes MMA?

    I got the receptionist to read out the figures, she didn't understand why I wanted the info and even less what the readout said. I got 14.3 total test and total cholestorol at 5.2. That test level is pretty low, that's average for a 70 year old man, mine should be in the 20s. That's an early morning blood test too.
     
    When I've finished this run of ostarine I'll be 100% setting up a TRT level cycle.

    I got sent for test checks again the other day as I had them done in Northern Ireland last tear and my treatment was ****. Explained everything and got given a piddly amount of clomid (which I told endocrinologist I had already tried) and then a referral to the dietician which was not even explained. I just sacked it off and doing my own TRT now
     
    However Im back in England now and signed with a new GP who was asking what happened so I explained and she was perplexed about the treatement I had received. I explained that Im running my own TRT now cos I had no other choice but she asked me to go for bloods asap. Can GPs prescribe TRT meds like Nebido?  I was under the impression they couldn't that it would need to be an endocrinologist but not going down that road again. Jab of sus every few weeks will do. At the time of testing I was over 2 weeks since a jab so wouldnt expect the levels to be very high.
     
    Good luck though with it. It seems be be like getting accutane. Just a postcode lottery. Some get it quickly. others (like myself) got messed about for years before getting it. This was before you could buy it on the blackmarket. Well you could get the Roche stuff but the price was colossal
