If a person is deficient in ANY other mineral, vitamin, chemical etc itnwould mean the lerson is not in normal health. Almoat any time anlerson is WAY outside what is normal and expected for health parameters, we do things to help get us back into that normal range. And when we do that, typically the person become MORE healthy and overall well. As long as we medicate or supplement correctly and donít go extreme.because the body doesnít work like that. Trt is not as simple as supplementing with a vitamin. With a vitamin you are just adding extra in. With trt you are on full replacement. You body is no longer producing on its own and other biological processes are shit down sometimes causing you to be deficient in other hormones and then starting the vicious cycle of trying to balance it all. Dr john always tried to use that logic but it didnít work. For me replacing testosterone lowered my already low normal cortisol to below range and man I felt it. I had labs to prove it numerous times and he refused to acknowledge that.
I believe testosterone replacement should not be expected to be any different.
If we are deficient in vitamin d we take the necessary amount to get back to normal. We woild woth Iron too, or thyroid. And when we do, the person feels better. Why would getting testosterone where it is supoosed to be somehow be a complication and make people sick?
Exactly how does the body realy know if it is getting testosterone from your testicles or from an injection? As long as the body is getting what it needs to function well, that is the bottom line.
I am not saying that getting optimized and balancing all the hormones with trt is easy. Not at all. Iím just believing that if a person is within limits I do not believe it will be long term negative heakth consequences. Maybe this is nust my naive wishful thinking.
I choose to believe having all levels within working functional optimized limits will result in overall better health. When any thing or multiple things get gravely out of whack. You will be unhealthy. And will be more healthy of you get the necessary medication to bring you back into range.
It is a quality of life issue. Do you want to feel like crap for the rest of your life, or do you want to try to feel better for what maybe a decade or more minimum?
I can tell you this. There are no guarantees in life. You donít even know you will get one more day. You only live once and you can never get ďlost yearsĒ back!
