Testosterone shots can cause liver damage!?
« on: August 23, 2016, 12:03:14 am »
Heard from a doc today that T shots can cause liver damage!?  Any truths to that?  I know oral T treatment can cause liver damage but not T shots.  I believe she was saying that as she was pushing pellets!!!

Absolutely untrue at physiologic dosing and, even if so, pellets would be no different.
