Surprised To Find Out I Have Low TOn a whim, I asked my Primary Care Doc to check my T levels during routine bloodwork. I was very surprised when results came back in the low 200's!
I'm 32, and I've been feeling the symptoms of low-t for a few years now. Lately I've been feeling lethargic and apathetic. Before, when playing football, I'm always the 2nd person to get into a scuffle (I never start a fight, but will always escalate), and now I find myself breaking them up or talking hotheads down. I used to be an avid video-gamer, and now I'm not even excited about the release of long awaited games. My wife bought me an xBox 360 for Christmas, and I didn't even bother hooking it up until February, because all those wires seem so complicated. When I was 25, I would've hooked it up Christmas morning, and not sleep until New Years.
My libido is still pretty high (********** 2 times a day), and have adequate muscle development (here's pictures of me before HRT: ckilledc.tumblr.com). The only person who knows about my low-T, aside from my wife and primary care Doc, is my sports medicine Doc, who was as surprised as I am, due to my habit of injuring myself from going too hard at the gym or on the field.
So, now I'm on 1 cc every other week. 4 weeks into my treatment, had 2 shots already, and due for my 3rd tomorrow. I'm feeling more confident, energetic, and motivated. I feel stronger, and my muscle development has definitely increased, the proof being the web of stretch marks ACROSS my biceps (they're usually at the ends of muscles, rarely across the muscle itself). I can literally feel my skin stretch when flexing, like it's spandex.
The only drawback is the $40 per shot price tag. At $1000 a year, it's a pretty steep price, especially knowing that juicers inject themselves with my 2 month's dose every DAY, and they only pay $40 a day.
