Looks like my testosterone levels have been low (230s).
hellass saidWhy are u taking it?
lookinforcars101 saidYou should consider talking to an Endocrinologist that has experience in sex hormone replacement to see if this is your best option. What I suspect might happen currently is you will go on androgel and your HPTA or HPGA feedback loops will end up doing what its supposed to do and shut down all of your endogenous( natural test production) due to the exogenous( androgel) supplementation causing your levels to basically stay the same or eventually lower. Oh and your testicles might just shrink too. You would be wise to also consider supplementing some HCG to keep your " boys" from shrinking...... its a tricky thing using testosterone as primary docs seem to think that you can just give this med and all will be well). Im not trying to scare you just give you some food for thought before you embark on this journey.
no I don't take any test of any sort or any meds at all I just am/was a Knowledge whore in college.
Edit: Oh also there is primary and secondary hypogonadism IE either your balls are the prob or your brain is the prob( as in has probs telling your testicals to make test) it would be wise to know " who's to blame"
My endocrinologist is the dr who prescribed the medication.
