    Low T therapy didn't go well???....

    Hi!

    At the age of 34 I started Test. Therapy for low T. During the 1.5 yr I was on Androgel and Axiron.

    Unfortunately, I was in the low percentage group that has side effects from it. My chest starting hurting, my D-dimer (blood clotting) levels were through the roof.

    Went to a cardiologist, blood pathog. And a lung specialist. All checked out fine. But they all told me to get OFF T treatment.

    I was told I was on the way to a heart attack or stroke due to treatment. I stopped treatment and after a couple weeks all symptoms stopped.

    I continue to have low T. No sex drive, fatigue all the time.

    I exercise 5x week. Strict healthy diet. Gallon water daily but still have low t.

    Any other treatments I could try??? Suggestions???

    What type of exercise are you doing? Everything I've read says strict weights...noooo cardio or endurance exercise. Endurance exercise increases estrogens.

    3x week with heavy weight training. 2x week light cardio to keep heart healthy.

    I wish I had a solution for you. Sounds like you are on the right track. Focus on the big muscle groups at the gym. Squats, deadlifts, and bench press. Those have helps my T levels climb.
