I am a 70 year old guy who has always been extremely active, bicycling 4000 to 5000 miles / year , hiking, skiing, and working out in the gym. Over the last few years, I have noticed a gradual drop in my athletic performance, slower recovery from exercise, and a loss of muscle mass. Even more distressingly, I had begun to have increasingly frequent incidents of erectile dysfunction. Given that my diet and exercise level was obviously not the issue and that I had no other health issues, these symptoms strongly suggested low testosterone. I decided to contact Core New England and Charlie Blaisdell. My initial blood work showed that I had the free testosterone of an 85 to 100 year old man.
Based on the results, and a discussion with ever helpful Charlie, I began testosterone replacement therapy with testosterone cypionate, HCG, and anastrozole. As a scientist, I reviewed the available literature, which further confirmed the basis for each of these recommended prescriptions, and so I began treatment. My response was immediate. The following note is excerpted from an email that I sent to Charlie after two weeks on his recommended therapy:
I just wanted to give a quick update on my results so far (after two weeks). Athletically, I feel better than I have in several years. I am finding that when cycling I am in at least one gear higher with the same perceived effort. Last weekend, my wife and I cycled 45 miles over Brandon Gap and Middlebury Gap in Vermont. Ride was easy with no fatigue! I am waking up with morning wood, and the sexual issues are gone. I am getting results from my gym workouts now.
All in all, it is like a miracle!
Update after first ten weeks of therapy:
I continue to feel GREAT! My wife and I have been biking in Colorado and New Hampshire this summer, and I feel stronger that I have in 20 years! We did a 77 mile road bike loop through Pinkham Notch, Crawford Notch, routes 115 and 2 through Gorham and back to Pinkham two days ago and the ride was easier for me that it was when I last did it 10 years ago.
After three months:
The results continue to be amazing. On a recent strenuous hilly week of cycling in Italy, I had no problems keeping up with men 20 years younger than me, and in all ways I feel at least 20 to 30 years younger that before beginning testosterone replacement therapy. I have regained the muscle mass that I had lost over the last few years, and I recover from strenuous exertion in the way I did when I was much younger. Erectile dysfunction is a thing of the past.
Charlie is always available to for advice and to answer questions. If you suspect low testosterone, my advice is to contact Core New England and Charlie immediately. It can transform your life! It did mine!
