I have insurance but as a self employed person I pretty much have to go with the high deductible because it's so cost prohibitive otherwise.
I am not completely stupid
some may argue that any time one attempts to self medicate is a bad idea. I can't argue that but I can say that after talking to a several general practitioners about HRT, I feel its an area where you should do your own research.
So from that I can say I've done my research. Got my blood done. Found an internet source for meds and gave it a try. After being on the 5% gel for 3 months. I got my blood work done again and have decided to hand this over to a professional.
Initially I was @400 total. Free was in the normal windows also. Low normal I think most would agree. Im 50.
After using the cream Androforte 5% for 3 months. My total was 1060 and free is 25%
I was a bit surprised but not alarmed.
What I found interesting is that somewhere in between I felt really good. Especially libdo and erections. Not as good toward the end or should I say lately. Not bad just not like I did at say 4 weeks.
So I've joined a low t program and today is my first appt. Since two weeks ago when I had my blood work done, I have began to reduce the dosage. Mainly because I wanted my last tube of the Cream to last until my appt. I can only assume that my total and or free is dropping. At this point I have no idea where it's at but I feel like I did early on. I'm horned up big time.
I'll of course ask the dr. about this today.
FYI I have found a national treatment center that is all inclusive dr. appts, blood work, Rx, etc. 199.00 a month which is in my budget. If I get 4 referrals I get a year free. Not the reason for this post but I thought I'd mention it anyway. So far everything they advertise is great.
Anyway has anyone else experienced the sweet spot at least the way it seems?
