Marquardt discontinues use of testosterone-replacement therapy

Monday, June 04, 2012

Given the events of the preceding year and the adversity he’s faced, it comes as a welcome opportunity, and one he’ll be taking without the aid of the therapy that brought all this trouble upon him. On Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour, Marquardt confirmed that is no longer using TRT.

“I didn’t know if I was going to be able to fulfill my dreams going that route,” he said. “I just feel it was so much of a hassle and stress with the commissions and all that, I guess, that the right thing for me to do right now is to choose not to do it. And you know, definitely I’ve pursued a lot of other stuff to try to help my health and a lot of it’s helping. I feel great right now. I’m in really good shape, and that’s not something I’m worried about right now.”

Among the things Marquardt (31-10-2) mentioned in order to help his health were treating a severe issue with allergies and addressing sleep apnea, a disorder that interrupts normal breathing and often leads to problems including fatigue and memory loss.

Yet, Marquardt leaving the treatment behind is no small story, as there is much literature that suggests that TRT, once taken, is to be used for a lifetime.
