i am very skeptical of anyone that claims there is a "gold standard" ,there is no gold standard, it is always changing, we are in the stone ages of hormone replacement therapy, that is no better than accepting what's told to you by any doctor for that matter, I don't believe in doctors, neither should you , start waking upContrarian Expatriate wrote: ↑February 20th, 2019, 7:18 pmMy overall point was if one is administering himself locally-purchased testosterone without his testosterone and estrogen levels being monitored and dosages adjusted, he could be doing himself grave harm.anabolic wrote: ↑February 20th, 2019, 8:32 amNo that's not the primary purpose of HCG w/ TRT, that is a secondary consideration, the primary goal is to backfill the other hormonal pathways that are getting shut down across the HPTA , for better overall mood and vitality, people can certainly father children, just on testosterone, or with testosterone and hcg, in practice, it is actually very rare to become sterile, also estrogen blockers have now been determined, to be overprescribed,and now the leading practioners in the field, let estrogen settle, where it wants, and adjust testosterone dose up or down however the patient feels, even estrogen levels outside of the "normal range" is acceptable and cardio protective the research has shown
I do appreciate your input, but I have to go with medical information that I received from 3 separate licensed physicians. The team that treats me has long treated many high-profile celebrities and multi-millionaires from all over the planet. In the area of HRT, they represent the gold standard where the newest research findings are considered and they very much know what they are doing.

There are indeed different standards of medical care all based on practitioners’ initial training, ongoing training, clinical resources, and and clinical experience. At the highest quality, that represents gold standard health care. The fact that you might not have access to it does not mean it does not exist.
If you think that HRT is in the stone ages, you are ignoring decades of research and successful track records. But, again, people often shun beneficial things which they know they cannot access. So I get it.
Finally, the fact that you think we should not “believe in doctors,” puts you in the category of members to just ignore, especially after you tried to cite the medical opinions of “leading practitioners in the field” only a few posts prior.
Now that it is clear that you simply wish to disrupt the flow of information that can improve men’s lives, I think I should relegate you to my ignore list so that the adults can discuss TRT/HRT without your resentful interference.
Update: After just 4 weeks on the program, I am gaining muscle weight, but losing body fat. I am switching to only cardio to slow down the muscle growth and increase the fat loss.
-My stomach is slightly flatter and the visceral fat that I can squeeze at the belly is noticably thinner.
-My face is changing to a more chiseled appearance due to the extra fat decreasing in the cheeks. I have also been doing facial exersizes and this has defined my jawline further. Such exersizes were uselss before TRT, but the they are very useful for me while on the program.
-I only have to do 50% workouts to get about 2 or 3 times the pump result as before. My weight room strength and endurance has also greatly increased.
-The difference in leg function has been phenomenal. I can run again instead of merely jog, my one-leg balance returned, and walking many flights of stairs is no longer a chore, but a fun workout.
-My assertiveness with women has increased and I am getting more play in that regard for some reason. That could simply be the placebo effect but my track record has been uncanny the last month or so. Could also be just the friendly North Florida area I am in right now, nothing more.
Complications: My first two weeks, injections into the gluts were very easy. However, my muscle mass has become very dense again so the injections are more difficult to squeeze into the muscle. My doctor advised to do the weekly injections in the deltoids if that gets worse.
All in all, I give the treatments a B+. I am still being told that far better results await as it is very early in the treatment process. A lot will be revealed in 2 weeks with a new blood test analysis to determine if my Testosterone or HCG doses need to be lowered or raised a bit.

A lot of people who use steroids rotate around the major muscles of their body - glutes then quads then delts then glutes again.
Lol, no wonder you're all screwed up. Taking over-the-counter probiotic supplements correlated with a 70 percent lower chance of responding to checkpoint inhibitor immunotherapy.

In other words, taking probiotics LOWERS your gut microbiome diversity. Scientists have noted this in people with cancers that respond poorly to immunotherapy. We only know of about 1000 good bacteria that help our gut/intestines. The gut needs over a billion!
