I have a doctor that does TRT but the cost of test cypionate with my insurance is expensive. I prefer test U and he won't prescribe that. So I found it much less expensive to by it black market and treat myself. The doctor just monitors the blood work.
Damn, you found a cool dr. My doc keeps wondering why my hematocrit levels are high.I guess its time to give some blood.

Endocrinologist ... an MD who specializes in what hormones do in the body, and how they interact with each other. Any given hormone level affects us, and affects other hormones. Any MD should know some of this; Endos know more.

Ah yeah I just googled it. I dunno what it's like in the states, but in Canada if you want to see a specialist your family doctor has to set up since our healthcare is socialized. The alternative is to find a naturopath or something but you're looking at thousands of dollars for that shit.

Even my cardiologists likes that I am on HRT. He told me he wants me to stay on as it has to many benefits.

Yep... give blood 2 to 3 times per year and you won't have an issue with hematocrit.

well just to share, i jumped on the trt wagon about 3 years now, didnt really get my test blood work check but reckon since i'm in my mid-forties, decline in test level is bound to happen anyway although i feel fine and all. mine's a very low dose self-administered 75mg Sustanon per week. started out at 150mg and finally figure out 75mg is the sweet spot for me and best thing is my nuts still retaining the size. alot of folks i know they claimed to be on trt but their dosage is almost equivalent to a cycle.. dont make that mistake. imo, if you are at that age where test level will inevitably decline then u can seriously consider trt, otherwise like they said, make changes to your lifestyle and train hard. so there you go.

I'm surprised that the cost of bloodwork is expensive in Canada, with it being socialized health care. I would think that if you are complaining of symptoms that beg for a full blood panel, that a reasonable physician would order blood work for you. Am I missing something?
