Mir explains his personal reasons for TRT use

source: mmafighting.com
 

He will also continue his doctor-prescribed testosterone replacement therapy. Mir said he regularly does blood work and was told his low testosterone levels posed a health risk. Saying the decision was more about his personal health than his fight career, Mir said he is planning to continue the treatment for the foreseeable future.

"As far as performance in the gym I couldn't tell you the difference," he said. "But as far as the areas of my health where I was starting to have issues, I was depressed -- as far as that goes, that gets too personal -- but I probably will always stay on this, the years of weight cutting have taken their toll, the constant dehydrating makes the body lose all that testoserone, thats medical science fact."

Also would he need to obtain an additional approval from CSAC or is the NSAC's decision honored in terms of granting TUE exemption for TRT?
