Should Younger Men Be Treated Differently Than Older?
« on: January 06, 2018, 06:46:45 pm »
We've had a couple of guys intimate that younger men need different treatment protocols than old.  Do you agree?  Disagree?

If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.

I think younger men should exhaust all natty type options before going on TRT.

I went on at age 30 and i wish I had just cycled stuff like longjack and eaten a higher fat diet and see if those things would hellp.

Once you go on, its very hard to get back to where you were because your body is used to the higher androgen levels.

Very true!

I should have mentioned that.  But I was more talking about, assuming that TRT is medically necessary.

Does this assume TRT is already selected? Prior to that I'd think younger guys should be pushed a little harder to give low-dose Clomid therapy a try before TRT.

I think it is really this simple: TRT is the treatment of choice for older hypogonadal patients, mostly because they are are higher in SHBG and most of them arenít concerned about fertility, while HCG/Clomid may be the solution for younger men who are low in SHBG etc.

Of course, I think so, if the younger man is secondary.

- advise younger man of repercussions of potential fertility loss
- advise younger man of using HCG dosing with testosterone therapy
- advise younger man of trying Clomid
- advise younger man to seek underlying cause (bloodtests, mri, ultrasounds, even karyotype)

With older men who have primary, their protocol is pretty confined to testosterone replacement.

With younger men, there are slightly different alternatives, in some cases.

I have absolutely no guess as to what that means. How would someone go about doing this?
57 years old
Autoimmune Hashimoto's, near zero natural T production
Cause: severe mononucleosis in my early 30's
Weight 220
Height 5' 10"
180mg NPthyroid (natural desiccated pigs thyroid)
Labs (Oct 2017) , my T=730, TSH 0.03, T3+T4 mid-range normal.
 
10% compounded creme. T=725, which feels just right.

Absolutely! And that's just because older men tend to have higher SHBG, so they can use longer esters like Nebido and take shots infrequently.

Usually it means taking pregnenolone which then goes down stream to progesterone and cortisol

Actually, SHBG tends to rise with age.

Ofcourse they should

A younger body is stronger and has more potential to heal

They should be put on a natural protocol that should raise T

Life style changes from diet, weight loss, exercise and modifications to anything that is detrimental to testosterone levels

The human body is a powerful organism if you put it under an environment/athmosphere with all the elements it needs to heal/repair most definitely it will repair itself, donít underestimate it

I think most young men jump on trt for a quick simple solution and are not patient enough to deal with the slow process of natural healing
