Just a general question does anyone here at all any age use testosterone at all or receive TRT therapy from their Endo that has UC? Reason I ask it's no doubt not an issue but me being paranoid... Can Testosterone injections AT ALL cause a flare up of colitis? I know it has certain interactions with the immune system but my knowledge on how much is limited... so if anyone knows that would be great or even better experience!

Doctors here in the UK are garbage as well as the whole NHS which is a total sham of a service get treated like a dog. I've had low test for nearly 2 years now (at age 22) just had another test result back which shown 5.9 (my age should be 25-30) so I have test of a 100 year old man which is dangerous in long run in terms of threat with cancer not to mention all the short term sides as people may be aware. They don't care though and aren't willing to help me so back to self medicating I go. Already been using proviron for 2 months, it did help slightly but find I just have to keep upping the dose (for libido purposes).

So now may as well start testosterone but im afraid as per incase of flare ups etc... Any help appreciated thanks.

I have used Androgel since I was 37 back in 1998. First packets, now the pump bottle. It was prescribed by my Endocrinologist for an unrelated pituitary condition, but my GI tests my T levels and recommends keeping up with the Androgel because it fosters good red blood cell production in the bone marrow. I bleed daily, and anemia has been a serious problem this year. Anyway, nobody mentioned, and I did not come across, any concern about Androgel making UC worse.

That said, I am hesitant to encourage any self-mediction, or use of anabolic steroids, without medical supervision.
