Just wanted to let everybody know that I met with my Uro yesterday, and have hatched a new battle plan. I will be starting with TRT next week via a compounding pharmacy. The concoction will include bio-identical "T" + a small amount of DHEA, which I was woefully low in as well. The lab work I had done recently indicated that I had raised my iron levels to a good range, and my Vit. D-3 supplements have gotten me to 65. (24 weeks of 50,000 IU p/wk raised it from 35 to 65). Serum T level, after a rise to 496 3 months ago, fell back to 357, where it seems to want to reside. Free T fell as well to 56. ........I know that for some, this move seems controversial, but there are enough new studies recently to give me, and the uro, enough confidence to proceed. PSA check again in 3 months, with the hormone levels to be checked/tweaked in 6 weeks
Oh, did I mention that all of this is possible because----------
