Successful TRT: Case Studies
« on: January 04, 2018, 02:41:05 pm »
I have a theory that generally - not saying always - the guys who succeed with TRT do the following:

a) Have a solid TRT protocol

b) Look at all hormones (or close)

c) Incorporate critical lifestyle changes.

d) May throw in a few supplements if needed

To support that, I have interviewed a few of the guys that I know swear by TRT to see just what they are doing.

The first interview is that of JustAskin, who many of you know by his stickied thread at the top of the forum.  Check out what he says and keep in mind he's in his late 60's and going strong.  Not bad, eh?

More to come by the way...

just a question. Have you seen any patterns with age and successful trt? Does it seem like itís a little harder for the under 40 year old guys get dialed in? Just curious. To me being on the forums it seems a lot of the 20s 30s crowd have a little tougher time dialing in.Maybe because with them itís a lot more complex then just age related decline?i could be completely wrong though

He takes Selegiline, do you attribute any of his success to that?

That's an interesting comment.  That does often seem to be the case.  Not sure why that would be though.

Here is Success Story #2 from none other than Cataceous himself:

I didn't know everything he was doing so interesting to read his general philosophy.  Once again, notice the mix of hormones and lifestyle.

I have super pleased, because a lot of the men on here have been willing to fill out the interview questions - and I know they are very busy - and this time it's Regulus:

http://www.peaktestosterone.com/Testosterone_Success_Story_Regulus.aspx

He leans on just testosterone but has a heavy emphasis on lifestyle and is doing very well.

Cat:  Why NALT?  You got me curious with that one.

A couple reasons. I'd been having issues with motivation, which could indicate the need for more dopamine. And tyrosine can potentially help with that. In addition, I had added a little L-tryptophan at night as a sleep enhancer, and I'd read in a couple places that it might be a good idea to balance this serotonin enhancer with a dopamine enhancer. The recommended dose of NALT caused insomnia, but cutting it in half worked fine.

Interestingly, while this treatment didn't seem to do much for motivation, it did appear to knock out a slight depression I'd had off and on. So I've stuck with it.

Edit--Here's an article on Livestrong discussing this "balancing": https://www.livestrong.com/article/185758-how-to-balance-dopamine-and-serotonin-levels/

Noted.  What I was also wondering is why NALT as opposed to just straight L-tyrosine?  I assume you tried the latter and didn't find it to be as effective?

No, I was just swayed by an article suggesting NALT might be a little more effective. Most likely L-tyrosine would work fine at an appropriate dose.

I believe JustAskin takes his tyrosine straight up with considerable success.  Maybe he'll comment.

Okay, JoeSixPack answered the same questions here.  I have always been intrigued by his stories because his lipids are incredible.  He has a little plaque (from smoking and higher cholesterol probably in his younger days per his story) but should be able to decrease that significantly with his numbers!  He also is the Walking Man and walks 20,000+ steps per day!

Happy to see that my patient population is well represented here in the success stories! Great idea, BTW, to survey with such thoughtful and relevant questions.
