Well, I'm going to live another year according to my blood tests, sorry to disappoint you @Littleguy .....

Was trying to get put on TRT but my doc said my levels are fine, Total Test came back at 305, the didn't take free Test for some reason which pisses me off since I asked for it. Do you need to be below the 250 to be considered low or just have a doctor who is more willing to prescribe.

Of course, I am going to take what I want, but the MD sign off was more so I don't have to hear my wife say something lol

Yup, 350 is normal according to the textbooks. I went in for bloodwork and came back at 167 and my primary care was like, "we can do 100mg every 2 weeks."

I know here local to me we have a ton of clinics that will prescribe at 350, and they accept insurance. any options like that for you?

Most GPs will go by the range listed on the blood work. A clinic will go more by how you feel and an endocrinologist will be the most knowable overall (how you feel and what your numbers say)

Came here to reiterate this. My old GP said 230ng/dL was normal at 30yo. Wouldn't even give me a referral to an endo.

My endo knows all about the recreational use and is cool with it as long as I ensure my bloods come back in range for my next visit.

Your doctor sounds like a jerk off. I think my last test prior to starting TRT was 212 but had tests around 300 before that. If you say you have symptoms of low t, they should treat the symptoms. I started off going to an endo after getting a referral from my GP but I had to jump thru a lot of hoops like get MRI of my pituitary and some other shit.

@Lizard King glad you are going to be around. Don’t know who I’d pick on if you weren’t. Did he run your cholesterol? What are your numbers?

Some good some bad, nothing crazy
Total - 203
Tris - 129
HDL - 45
LDL - 132
VLDL - 25

I rattled off every symptom of Low-T, he wouldn't bite. Also said my blood sugar looked a little high at 110, he wouldn't give me anything. Back to self prescribing :)
