Over 6 years ago I was tested for Low Testosterone (Low T) and was told at 220 I was still within range and on the low side of the bell curve. I requested my primary care physician (PCP) the test because of articles I had been reading with men’s waist size and correlation to Low-T, and the increase estrogen. Well I trusted my PCP and over the next 5 years gained 50 pounds, and what triggered another request from my PCP is the fact I could not shake a seasonal depression, which only last 4 weeks, that now turned into 4 months. When I was finally tested again my T was at 114! At this point my PCP referred me to Endocrinology. Being a patient at the VA this took some time, then after starting with 200mg every other week via shot I was having mood swings and the depression was not lifting. (The T got to 347) so they switched me to Androgel. The mood swings dissipated but not the depression. My last visit to the Endocrinologist my T was 202, and when I asked what he was going to do about that, he stated lets go another 6 months as is.
By this time, I was more than pissed and after having done some research on Low –T and seeing Boston Testosterone Partners on facebook, I decided to make contact. Charlie responded to my inquiry and was more than willing to answer any of my questions. I decided to start only the TRT program (even though it was no longer free [VA]), as I need to get out of this depression. Charlie wanted me not only to be within range but optimal range (600-800). I figured I would give this a go and see if it is better than what has been happening for the past year.
Within 2 weeks I started feeling better, the fog lifted and I started wanting to go do things again. I went ahead and had my T levels analyzed by the VA (I was going in for a 6 month review) and even though it was early, my T levels was in the 700 range. It has now been a month since starting the TRT program with BT, and I have felt so much better, than I have ordered and just received the sermorelin ghrp2 and Cialis troches. I can’t wait to see where this next step takes me.
Thank you Charlie and BTP!
