so sounds like a sham...symptoms that basically anyone can recite to a doctor to get a prescription right?

I would imagine they would need blood tests in order to confirm the testosterone deficiency..

 It's funny how the minute you started seeing Low-T commercials on TV, everyone is getting TRT.   It's the latest medical fad.

They test your blood, if your test levels are in normal range. No Therapy for you.

Maybe he ruined his natural hormone production somehow.

Actually HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy)has been around nearly 30 years.

It is very basic when used as therapy. You get tests and if your HGH & Testosterone are low you get injections to maintain a normal level.

Helps maintain skin elasticity, muscle mass, etc.

 Take a low dose of dbol for a week and your test levels will be low enough to get a script.

Ok, legally they they can only boost you into the 800 -1000 range, though you may go slightly higher until they adjust the injection levels. it's not like they are giving you Hulkish levels of testosterone.

 1-As you get older your T goes down.   Reduced sexual function.

2-As you T goes down, you get more belly fat. 

3-Belly fat converts T to estrogen, feminizing you further.

4-Low T is associated with higher cholesterol.

5-Low T sucks for in many ways.

If you take a test after you fap, does it register lower testosterone?

In most cases, and certainly in the context of MMA, the first option. In the context of legitimate medicine and to a lesser extent "anti-aging" treatment, option 2.

 The HRT place in Santa Monica will give you a 2cc/400 mg shot every ten days.

 that would result in supra natural levels for most people.  Not to mention massive ups and downs from the lengthy delay.

"'shit stays active" 

Cyp is out in 14 days, and Enanthate in 21 days.  But more importantly, their half lifes are 7 and 10 days respectively.  So after 7 days for cyp, half of the test is out.  If you want steady blood levels, it needs to be injected 2x a week.

I was just diagnosed with low T. It was only 170. My energy was just gone. I was still training frequently and working out but making no gains.

Over the last three years I had gained 30 lbs (all belly fat) with very little change in diet or exercise schedule.

This really sucks I just hope I havent waited too long to do something about it.

My doc is only prescribing 1cc every 2 weeks and I'm wondering if thats enough.

 Sorry but I disagree Johnny.

Vent, I'm sure they'll test you frequently so you'll see if your number is up or not.  The other thing is, if your insurance is covering it see about going to an actual HRT clinic, versus a primary care physician. Or are you ?

 ^  if it's 200mg/cc, that should bring you back to normal.  Is he injecting you, or are you doing it yourself?  You really need to inject 2x a week for stable levels.  Try and talk him into letting you self administer.

I could care less if you disagree, but everything I stated is accurate.
