Again, a great question for your doctor!! Discuss this with them. One very good option is always simply not to do it. You are the best one to weigh the pros and cons that your doctor lays out for you and decide what is the right decision for you. One thing that people often fail to realize is that the normal range for testosterone is that – a NORMAL RANGE. That means that readings anywhere in that range are NORMAL. If you are on the “low side of normal” – that is NORMAL. Another thing to realize is that doctors to not treat test results, they treat symptoms. Just because your testosterone comes in at 200 does not necessarily mean you need TRT! See also the below question.
I made a huge mistake when my new dr wrote my anastrozole to 1mg instead of .5 mg. Having to stay off it for a while because I have no estrogen now. How long does it take for levels to start to rise back to normal? I was taking .. 25mg of anastrozole every day before and it was perfect, but this was compounded and now my insurance is actually paying for it. Weird to adjust to a new version and wrong dosage. I am also taking 3mg of Boron Daily. it improves all of your mail hormone levels ( including your Free testosterone- which is the number you should watch, not total) You feel much better on Boron and can think more clearly. Also Facto- Ferrin will burn visceral body fat and improve your immune system. These 2 additions will make you feel amazing!
For guys without hypogonadism, a wait-and-see approach may make the most sense. "We just don't have the data to prove that raising testosterone in men who already have normal levels confers any real benefit," says Dr. Robert Mordkin , a urologist in Arlington, Virginia. Furthermore, Mordkin adds, "Natural waxes and wanes of testosterone as we age may have some not yet entirely understood protective effects." In addition to making us better fathers, as the Northwestern study infers, declining testosterone "may lower our vulnerability to prostate cancer at a time in our lives when we're at the greatest risk for it." That said, if you have classic symptoms of hypogonadism – low libido, fatigue, erectile dysfunction – "it's probably reasonable to check your testosterone. And for those guys whose blood levels come under definitions of low testosterone, it's probably reasonable to try the therapy for a while. But that's very different from saying testosterone is the fountain of youth."
