Testosterone, Hormones and General Men's Health / Testopel results
« on: January 16, 2013, 09:29:55 pm »
Went for my 3 month labs yesterday and the results already came in. Background: I started TRT with 1/2 tab (25mg) Clomid daily in May 2012, more than doubling my TT from 256 to 689.  Switched to Androgel (due to Doctor's advice not to stay on Clomid long-term) and dropped to 300 even with 3 pumps 1.62 version. Had 13 Testopel pellets inserted on 10/15. Here are my 1 month and 3 month labs:
1 mo:
TT 424, bioavailable 246, PSA .9,
3 mo:
TT 541, bioavailable 305, PSA .9

Mine actually increased when the peak was supposed to be 30 days and the "trough" at 90.

I wonder if adding 5000 IU of daily vitamin D made a difference after reading about it here. Or adding in one pump per day of Androgel to my forearms using the Dr Crisler method. I had leftover gel and did this for the third month knowing that my 1 month results were low, but applied none on the day of the test. Could it have accumulated? Or the 1 month labs were flawed? 13 pellets should have taken me higher I would think.

Testosterone, Hormones and General Men's Health / Undenatured whey article

From your website article about whey protein... "So I started by saying, "No whey!"  Now I say, "Yes, whey!"  Well, as long as it is denatured..."

Peak, didn't you mean "undenatured?" Thanks,


I am a 44 y.o. 6'6" 260 ex-athlete who never used steroids or anything other than protein, glutamine and occasional creatine. In May of 2012 I was diagnosed with primary hypogonadism. TT was 256. Clomid got me up into the 600's while I was trying to make a baby, which is currently in the oven. The fertility doctor also works at a men's health clinic and said Clomid hasn't been proven safe for long-term use so we switched to Androgel. Eventually after getting to 3 pumps per day, my TT only made it to 300. We then switched to Testopel. 13 pellets were inserted last month.

I feel great. My one month labs just came back and per the nurse, TT is now 424 and bioavailable T is 271. She didn't read me the units used for these values, but isn't that a very high bioavailable number for such a low TT at 1 month? I am awaiting a phone call from the Dr. But I though I would seek opinions here. She had expected TT of over 900 at one month post insertion of 13 pellets. But maybe bioavailable T is more important as I am back to my old self in the wood dept. and my energy is up too.
