I was on the forum a year ago and my testosterone was low,i went to an endocrinologist he gave me a couple of shots,i didnt react to well to them and it scared me away.i was given testosterone and dhea troches,it did restore my dhea levels however it didnt help my T levels much.The last few months i havent been taken anything,my last test has shown that my Testosterone levels are even lower.
This was my result form last year.oct 2012.
FSH -----------------------> 21.0 U/L - (1.5-13.0)
LH -----------------------> 7.1 U/L - (2.0-10.0)
TESTOSTERONE ----------> 7.8 NMOL/L (9.5-28.0)
SHBG ----------------------> 19 NMOL/L (15-50)
FREE ANDROGEN INDEX -> 41.1% (15-100)
Cholesterol 6.0nmol/l (3.9-5.5)
Triglycerides 3.4nmol/l (0.5-1.7)
HDL Chol. 0.8nmol/l (0.8-1.5)
LDL Chol. 3.6nmol/l (1.7-3.5)
my current testosterone levels are now lower 6.3 nmol/L. I am so sick all the time,i have testicle pain,arthritis pain especially in my hands,i am fatigued,irritable,anxious,stressed,bloated.i feel like an old man.I seem depressed all the time.This year I havent cried as much as i have in my entire life,i just cant hide my emotions anymore,Nothing seems to work my mind is gone,i have toxic feelings of being unwell.my health has continued to deteriorate,i have been so close to committing suicide this year.Im just tired of it all.
I want to try testosterone therapy again,but i hate doctors,they are morons,they have no empathy and no understanding,i just moved to a new area and my new doctor had to look through a book for information.The specialists seem bad as well,they seem to see the worst of the worst of patients and consider my problem not to be that bad.
I was reading about different treatments,i wanted a treatment to mimic the natural function of testosterone,i notice that androgel 1.62% seems to do this,i want the testosterone to be highest earlier in the day and wane towards the end of the day.Australia doesnt seem to supply this product,do you think it ok to order it online and get my doctor to monitor my levels,or should i see an endocrinologist?
i found this video online,please tell me what you think of it.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXHQ7uSCxZo
i am really desperate,i need some help,i dont know what to do.the whole process is such a long one.Is there any risks involved in just ordering this product,i want to slowly accustom my brain to the increase of testosterone,i think the previous injections had a strong reaction what do you think?sorry for the random post,its hard to think clearly when nothing is working.
One important question does androgel replace my testosterone or does it supplement it?will my production decrease with usage?
