I should also mention that it's a low dosage. I'm not taking a crazy amount of this stuff daily.

You need to lose the weight as fast as possible. That's the most important thing in this all.

There are a few components to healthy testosterone. Healthy weight, solid musculature (don't need to be huge but some muscle is good), 7-9 hours of sleep per night, and regular sexual intercourse.

The path to achieving that is regular anaerobic exercise, some supplemental cardio (your exercise ratio should be at least 70% anaerobic), no soy or soy byproducts, no processed foods, no pornography, and no masturbation. Soy is estrogenic and a lot of the chemicals in processed foods are bad for the way you feel, including testosterone. Pornography and masturbation can reduce your motivation to approach women in real life, and can even affect your sexual responses. When you do all of these things, you feel your best. If you feel well, you present well to women, and are able to get the sex on a regular basis needed to help testosterone levels.

Thank you for your response; love what you wrote. I have struggled with my weight since I was 9 when my Mom passed away. I was doing amazing from 2014 - 2018, but I gained 40 lbs back in 2019. But I am focused and eating healthy and going to the gym again. I lift and do cardio. I also go for 30 minute walks on my lunch hour at work. I'm still having trouble with sex though. My girlfriend has been patient and supportive, but she is starting get sexually frustrated, and I totally understand. I'm a little embarrassed to say this, but one of my issues is porn and masturbation. I think you are right with it being an issue with my motivation. I did some research on this and you are spot on with your comment.



I also need to get better with sleep. I can be a bit of a night owl, and my mind is always racing at night. Sometimes I am in bed by midnight, other nights it's 1:30. I try to get up at 5 for the gym, but lately I just sleep until 6:30 because I struggle with getting up so early.

No offense, but nothing you have provided pertains to me. You are taking your personal experience, along with researching the nasty effects that can happen to men who are way too old be taking testosterone, or doing TRT. You're also coming off as if I would get every single side effect. The only side effect I have so far is I am urinating more frequently. Many of these articles talk about the dangers of men doing this that have CAD, or prostate cancer, or just cancer in general. In order to do TRT, you MUST be pre-screened for prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and even kidney and liver cancer. I was pre-screened and came out with no issues on every single report. I had multiple tests and blood work done for my cholesterol, heart, etc. Everything came back with normal results.



The best age range to do TRT are ages 25 - 35. Over 40 is risky, and over 50 is just plain stupid. And again, my doctor is monitoring me and is having my do follow ups to check my levels. I have already been warned that treatment will cease immediately if my levels don't change, or if my doctor sees an issue with my body when she tests me again. I also have the ability to stop on my own if I want. It's a low dosage as well.

Yes and in my link it clearly states: Despite historical concerns over testosterone therapy in aging males, there is now a large and rapidly increasing body of evidence suggesting that testosterone replenishment in men with cardiovascular disease is safe and effective.

Better luck reading next time Mr. Graywhiskers. As always those that push pseudoscience run away with their tails between their legs when they are unable to provide any evidence for their false claims.

No, typically men over 50 take TRT.

"Um no it was your article that was referring to men with prostate cancer should not take TRT. Here it is one last time, directly from your article since you seem to be the one that cannot read your own articles:"

So you were lying as lately as 9:07 pm yesterday. Now you admit it was your link. As anyone can readily see.
If you have to resort to emotion and constant insults, you do not have a case.

Yes, and the risks are far greater than that of a 30 year old.

Most men over 50 are not trying to conceive children. TRT often makes them feel better. They are willing to go on TRT shots the rest of their lives. If an older man also has low estrogen, the doctor solves two problems with TRT. TRT does not help erectile dysfunction. That takes Viagra or Cialis.
