I apologize, guys.

False alarm, I didn't remember that free test is a result of a formula. The lab made a mistake.

Be well all of you

Do you have some "days off" ?. In other words, do you have a day where you just eat anything? It has been shown that if you are in a very low carb diet and you have a small amount of carbs in a meal, that could raise your libido for awhile.

Are you on a low carb diet?

Hi Guys,
 i have great hope and good news for you most importantly I  am sharing this experience to encourage  you

This protocol  below has shown me a very BIG and significant improvement   in my ED. Its been over 5 weeks  and i wake every morning with great erections  consistently ..I mean every morning , this is what i think has made a vey BIG change.
Before i proceed i add that , I have been having big FAT erections..yes BIG Fat erections and having  good sex    that i havent seen for many many years .

Also Viagra seem to be working again..YES Viagra and other aphrodisiacs are working now
My life now has a new meaning  and i am an extremely happy man , its early days but i am pleased with the consistency.I am riding on this feel good factor to also fight all the pyschological  elements of ED that i carry .I will try to enjoy this moment  for now and build on it

In my mind i feel i have conquered  ED and my bedroom confidence is very very high. I have had some serious sex sessions with (other women) to build my confidence and its been fantastic so far.Even if this effect wears off i will be a very happy and hopeful man for a very very long time

This is what has made a big difference in order of  efficacy

1.Cialis  5mg daily   in the evening 2 hours before bed or anticipated sex  8.30 pm for me
2.Garlic Oil (pills) + Vitamin C (high dose vitamin C powder) 2 capsules +1/2 teaspoon respectively morning  and evening

I take Garlic oil capsules (2 softgel capsules) of  4000MG  Garlic Oil  which contains 3.6mg of allicin   + 1/2 a teaspoon of pure (Vitamin C powder 2500mg) i mix with water

I have been taking this protocol for just over 5 weeks .I feel like its changed my life a lot.These 2 are great for overall heart health   and blood pressure hypertention issues too
Cialis used to do nothing for me , but now i think long term  low dosage has done me a lot of good

These  above  seem to be the main kickers but before that, i also experimented with

Pentoxifylline ( ie 400mg   1  daily)
Yohimbe (an hour or so before sex)
25mg of Viagra  (an hour or so before sex)

With Yohimbe and Viagra protocol i get super hard erection   , but i have now tried without them and i still get great erections, so i have dropped them off the list for now.They all work make a great difference.

At this moment no man on this earth is happier than me , i encourage everyone to focus on endothelial and heart health  and blood flow issues it is the main course of ED , while it is also good to boost testosterone , it does little for ED..guys please focus on blood flow and endothelial health it will also significantly help your general health , combine it with cardiovascular exercises and healthy eating. Focus on treating inflammed blood vessels with natural supplements.You cant go wrong doing both  too ie hearth health +testosterone boost  but main focus on heart health.

For testosterone enthusiasts and advocates focus on estrogen or Estradial control with natural supplements.like  Zinc Grapeseed oil etc .testosterone boost did nothing for me for erections.
Dont waste too much time and effort  on testosterone boosting  unless  you have been diagnosed  with very very low testosterone.

There is hope guys dont rush into penile implants or anything silly   there is plenty of hope , i am one of the worst  and long term sufferers of ED on this forum. If i can heal you can heal too, be patient and give yourself time ..I am still working on improving  I wish peak was still around to share my success with

I am happy to answer any questions and share my newly found success and experience ..Yes viagra now works again..my endothelials and inflammed blood vessels are healing and optimised to work with viagra again .I think i have singlehandedly  cracked the code of viagra resistance or poor response or viagra tolerance

Hey Lion

Can you post exactly the name of the Garlic and  Vitamin C you are using please??

I have been taking  L-Ornithine/L-Arginine at night to raise my IGF-1, well I succeeded but the problem is my PSA also raised a half point.

Before taking my IGF-1 was 131 now 220
Before taking my PSA was 2.1 now 2.7

What are your dosages, Just?

I need to raise my levels since I'm on a very low carb diet 6 days a week and that lowers the IGF severly.

Thanks

Have you taken DHEA, by the way?
Yes, I've been taking 12.5 mg a day for some years now.

I see. Do you know if it has helped you in increasing you DHEA levels? I mean objectilvly by lab works? I am asking because
 after having 25 mgs daily during 10 days, my lab work reported a very low level as I said in a  prior reply. (1.95    .06-13.37)so it means I was very very low before starting with the 25 mgs , and ,do you know if  it decreased in some way your test levels?  By the way, I did the calculation with the Total Test level they give me and it is correct, of course, with the level of 700s they got. I'll make them repeat it but I doubt they are wrong.

Before supplementing with DHEA my level was measured as 100 ug/dL. Several measurements since have been in the range of 280-300 ug/dL. Supplementation was very effective. I do not believe it has had a perceptible effect on testosterone, and I don't see a plausible mechanism for it to do much to testosterone when we're on TRT. Look at a steroidogenesis diagram. You would know if DHT increased by 300 ng/dL, and you'd especially know it if estradiol went up by 3,000 pg/mL! If you're injecting a consistent amount of testosterone then it's got to be somewhere.


Mmmm, this is very confusing for me, since I didn't change anything but the DHEA. I'll make them repeat the lab work. I hope any Dr jumps in and give and opinion on wether DHEA has something to do with this.

The free T in your signature is calculated. If this new value is also calculated from SHBG and total T then total T could still be wrong. What are the units? What about estradiol? If it didn't also decline then that argues against the accuracy of the testosterone measurement.

it is calculated from SHGB . I don' t remember the formula but SHGB is 40 and estradiol is 32.CAn you help me with the formula please?

You can calculate free testosterone using online sites such as this one: http://www.issam.ch/freetesto.htm
But if you're putting in a total testosterone value that is incorrectly low, then the resulting free testosterone will also be incorrectly low. "Garbage in, garbage out."
If your signature reflects previous results then estradiol went up this time, if anything. This would be another reason to be suspicious of the testosterone measurement.

Cat,

Those number in my signature are very old ones.

thanks for the link, I'll do my calculation to see if the lab is wrong. I doubt it, because is a very prestigious one.

Have you taken DHEA, by the way?

Was free testosterone also measured?

Yep. also went down from 25 to 14. Strange, eh???

Let's see if somebody else jump in with a similar experience.

Now , after takin 25 mg of DHEA daily for more than one week before having my lab work,  and if this affects so much my test levels, I have two choices. One is to quit DHEA (I found I'm very low)or to keep with it and to increase my test dosage a 30 percent.

By the way, after taking those 10 days 25 mg of  DHEA, my lab work says I`m very low @ 1.95  ( range is .06 to 13.37)

...
So it can lower it as much as 30 percent?
...

Personally I think that's too much change for natural variability. Aside from lab error, what about a change in your testosterone formulation? A different batch or supplier?

For comparison, I've had four testosterone tests over the last two years and they have all been in the relatively narrow range of 740-800 ng/dL, even with different batches and an ester change.

Noup

Everything the same , same brand as in the past half year and I'll try to check that batch. It is manufactured by Bayer, so quality is not a question here.

12
Lab error is a possibility. If your TRT dose hasn't changed then it's not plausible that so much testosterone just disappeared.
Yes, and normal daily variability.

Thanks guys.

Hey Dr,

So it can lower it as much as 30 percent?

I always have my lab work on Saturdays under the same conditions so a daily swing of that amount is not logical. I seriously doubt that it was a lab mistake.

13
Hey guys

Any experience taking DHEA? I started taking 25 mgs daily and after 4 days I took Test labs and my two anterior levels were just above one thousand and this one came at the 700s. I have not changed anything, but the adition of the DHEA. I find no other cause to that 30% reduction in my testosterone levels.

Thanks in advance.

Whattt ????????!!!!!!! I do not believe it. I'm shocked !!!!!!!!!!! Without him, this website lost his escense. Peak , I'll miss you !!!

When I was using Caverject (6-7 years ago?) it came in an injector where you could set the dose before using. I would have to look at it to remember what my dose was but I do know it wasn't the highest setting and I never experimented going higher than the doc recommended. Even at the lower dose (in the middle of the setting IIRC) I experienced some pretty achy erections. Maybe the curvature could have been caused by scar tissue from injecting in the same spot all the time or long term usage. Or possibly too high a dosage?

I didn't stick with it after the relationship I was in ended and pretty much stuck with the pills after that ;D It's nice to know it's an option if ever needed though.  It definitely worked for me, I could punch holes in drywall I would get so hard. The doc who prescribed it for me is the one who told me I had some venous leakage. I can get it up often but maintaining is the problem.



Hey,Active. Do you remember what dosage did you use?

He hasnít been around for a couple of months.  Let us know if you try it.

Gracias Peak

I' will
