When Taking Testosterone Replacement Therapy, top Mistakes People Make

I have heard of so many mistakes being made by people taking testosterone replacement therapy philadelphia. Some mistakes seriously impacted their quality of life, or resulted in men stopping testosterone prematurely. Here are a few of the biggest errors I’ve witnessed:

Using “street sources” of testosterone: I have met many men whose doctors do not support their use of testosterone, so they buy it on the black market or from some guy at their gyms. The use of testosterone and its cousin molecules (anabolic steroids) is illegal in the United States for those without a medical diagnosis that justifies their use (e.g. anemia, wasting, hypogonadism). In a nut shell: only use testosterone after a physician gives you a prescription and do not import it from other countries.
The use of “street” testosterone is also dangerous. Some so-called testosterone products may simply contain peanut sesame, grape-seed or oil oil.
If you are using testosterone to increase muscle mass or to improve athletic performance even though you have normal testosterone levels, be smart and research all you can. And please, read the information in this book about how stopping testosterone can cause health problems (if you are using black market testosterone, chances are that your source will eventually run out).
Not exploring what testosterone option is best for you: Since there is an assortment of options for testosterone replacement, it’s important that you take the time to really find out what’s best for you. Several factors are involved in deciding what would be the best testosterone replacement option for you. Every testosterone option has advantages and disadvantages that may be more suitable for one person over another, so read the following section on treatment options.
Not using the right dose: Men who start testosterone need to have their testosterone blood levels rechecked twoweeks or one month after they start therapy (depending on the testosterone formulation), right before they administer the corresponding dose for that day or week. Total testosterone blood levels under 500ng/dL that are not improving your sexual desire and energy should be increased to 500to 1,000 ng/dL by increasing the frequency of injection or the dose.Some doctors fail to retest after they get a patient started on testosterone since they assume most men respond to 200 mg bi-weekly injections or 5 grams per day of gels. Those men tend to stop testosterone early because they perceive no benefits at “average” doses.
Cycling on and off testosterone: Testosterone replacement is a life-long commitment. When you stop replacement therapy you are left with no testosterone in your system for weeks while your HPG hormonal axis normalizes. A few men never have their hormonal axis return to normal after stopping testosterone (especially if they were hypogonadal at baseline).

Using “street sources” of testosterone: I have met many men whose doctors do not support their use of testosterone, so they buy it on the black market or from some guy at their gyms. If you have low testosterone, there are hundreds of doctors who will prescribe testosterone replacement therapy (refer to the Appendix section for directories). If you are using testosterone to increase muscle mass or to improve athletic performance even though you have normal testosterone levels, be smart and research all you can. And please, read the information in this book about how stopping testosterone can cause health problems (if you are using black market testosterone, chances are that your source will eventually run out).
