Thanks Peak. I would love to quit Armidex after 6 months and have my body stabilized. I do not feel any joint pain at this point with the 1mg daily but from I read from all the different forums my feeling great sometimes is only a month and going backwards. I do not want that. I will continue to work out, take 1 cc weekly injections, take vitamin D, calcium and do what I need to do. Is there any immediate indication when I need a less dose of Armidex? I want to do everything i need to do in order to keep what I have going with little to no interference. I know working out with weights and running does miracles alone.

1 mg daily?  Wow!  That's pretty beefy.  That will just about shut everything off in some guys.  Anyway, if you're estrogen starts going low, you may start to experience mind/psychological issues and/or joint pain.  But it's not always symptomatic, so it's much more important to just monitor regularly.

Roger that. Keep in mind the 1 mg dose is only  a week so far...2 months ago my estrodiol rates was 98 and 2 weeks ago was 58. I am certain with the pain and lumps behind my nipples especially taking the T shots was necessary to take 1 mg dose. I am just trying to get on track for sustainment. I will go to .5 mg in the next couple days. If I do not feel joint pain or side effects by now, I did well and nows its time for reduction to .5 mg daily.

Makes sense.  I think that's pretty common with knowledgeable docs but never heard of that big of a short term dose.  But it makes sense...

Hello everyone. Been taking weekly 1ml shots of T CYP. First week of Armidex I took 1 mg daily for 7 days. Second week took .5mg Armidex, and now I am on EOD of .5 Armidex. My method has worked great. I am losing more of my water weight and limming down 5-7 pounds. Been lifting 4 times a week for the last 2-3 months straight. I love running and pumping iron in the mornings. My mojo is working well. I initiate my wife to mess around. I feel a lot better. I do not feel the pain behind my nipples anymore. I feel better with the T shots due to NO MORE CONVERSION TO ESTRODIOL. Life is good. I feel more of a man than I ever have. I would love people to read this entire forum to se the obstacles my wife and myself made to get me to this point today. THANK YOU ALL FOR EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!@

It is amazing. Though I am taking shots and meds, I tried all other options and this was the combo I been waiting for. I even lost 6 pounds in the last 2 weeks. Once in a while, I take 500mg L-Carnitine an hour before my workout and I sweat my butt off. I been working out super hard this week because I might indulge in more than average good eating the next week and a half off. Life is good.

For everybody that has been watching this forum, my best advice besides treatment is working out. Not just going to the gym but building up your intensity week by week. If your intensity raises, then progress will be made always. Also, switch workouts time to time. Need to shock the muscles because they get used to the same routine. For example, last week I lift heave pyramid sets increasing weights and decreasing reps with a steady one mile warm up run. This week I do a fast quarter mile then go to 4 different exercises immediately circuit training 2 muscle groups. I repeat and do another quarter mile and go immediately to 4 different sets of exercises 2 muscle groups. The point is to change what you do.

Medicine will do wonders like T shots and armidex for me but it does not end there. Do not watch porno and masturbate repetitively. You will kill your libido until its gone. Stop that, work out, and join back the real world.

Good advice.  (Make sure you are not overtraining of course.  You don't want to undo all your hard work.)

Hello Peak and everybody. I want to give you an update of my progress of my treatment. I am still taking my 1cc of 200 ml of Testosterone Cypionate a week and .5mg-1mg daily dose of Armidex. My next follow up blood work is in February. Words cannot describe how I been but in one word it will have to be INCREDIBLE. I make love to my wife on an average 6-8 times a week. I am taking advantage of this feeling because I never had it before and I am 34 years old. I love it. I am finally at the point where my wife has had enough in the bedroom and I am asking for more. This is the first in my life I ever felt so good and confident. I am still working out 4 days a week in the mornings at 0515 running and lifting. I do not overtrain though. I lift one muscle group a week by splitting up my muscles in the 4 days a week. Monday will be chest, tuesday arms etc... 1 mile run 4 days a week for warm up. I feel better at work and no more have the heavy cloudy feeling in my head. Peak, I owe you a big thank you with the Armidex consideration you told me about. Since I started that after I been on the T injections for a month, life has changed since I knew it. Life is good. My whole life I was in the gutter and felt I was never evert to be normal but I stand corrected.

To all those reading with problems like mine, have hope and pursue treatment from a well qualified doctor. I feel reborn and a brand new person. Thank you peak for helping my wife understand these issues from the beginning. Though you told her at first to leave me because it sounded like I didn't care, my wife told me about all the things wrong with me that I never knew about. Once I finally realized and tried to improve myself and seek medical help and made it through the aweful Androgel which did absolutely nothing to me, I got the correct treatment of T injections and Armidex. Now after a long road to get here, I made it to be treated perfectly. Thanks again for all your knowledge.

Your story is one of the most incredible on here.  And what is interesting about it is that it emphasizes something that no one can understand until they've gone through it:  the misery of being low testosterone.  It is truly miserable and life changing.  I've always said it turns you into a functioning zombie. 

By the way, you wrote that I advised your wife to leave you.  Now I would be absolutely shocked if I said anything like that.  Maybe I had a brain outage, but here is what I remember:  you absolutely did not want to change - at one point of course - and did not want to go in for help.  That's what I was hearing.  So I told your wife to take care of herself.  Essentially I was telling her to get ready for a rocky ride.  We've all had a loved one who was sick and just would not take care of themselves.  What very often happens is that they drag the health down of everyone around them and that's not a good thing of course.

Now that leads to my question:  what made you finally want to change?  What finally got you into the door of the doc? 

I'm asking that, because, to be honest, I'm one of the those annoying overachieving self-improvement kind of guys.  I want to always make myself bigger, faster, better, stronger, etc.  But I find so many men just give up.  If you can give a little insight here, it might really help me when I run across that situation in the future.

do you watch Breaking Bad?  in one episode, one character, (jane) was sleeping and she vommited and because she had been high, she didnt wake up, so he died
she was well aware that could happen, yet she still got high and took that risk
I dont understand why people get high.  I dont undertand most of what people do..well maybe, everyone wants instant gratification...
everything you talk about, Peak, takes time and effort.......what are your weaknesses?

Well, that's one way to look at it.  Now there are people in my family who would call it self-centered self preoccupation.  In spite of it, they put up with me...

If they are feeling good, it's probably okay.  Dr. Davis makes the argument, thought, that wheat is probably causing a lot of underlying immune responses that we don't understand yet because it is so heavily GMO'd.  That hasn't been proven yet of course, but in his practice he has noticed many people have a big improvement in health, mental and physical when they get off wheat.  So imo the best thing to do is lay off the wheat, whole or otherwise, and see if you feel better.

Another thing about wheat:  it can spike blood sugar and insulin pretty good.  I didn't read the ingrediennts, but if it's mostly whole wheat, it's glycemic index will be pretty high, so you don't want to eat too much.

yes, thats the main question I wondered about:
spiking of the blood sugar
in my bread vs my parents bread
mine has the ingredients
Organic Sprouted Wheat, Filtered Water, Organic Raisins, Organic Sprouted Barley, Organic Sprouted Millet, Organic Malted Barley, Organic Sprouted Lentils, Organic Sprouted Soybeans, Organic Sprouted Spelt, Fresh Yeast, Organic Wheat Gluten, Sea Salt, Organic Cinnamon.

and theirs is whole wheat as the 1st ingredient

any thoughts?
