I think this approach is fine. I must say having been doing this for years, treating hundreds and thousands of men I have been underwhelmed with the results with topicals. Injections can cause peaks and valley and I have many younger men inject twice a week that smooths out the peaks and valleys. I think it is appropriate to follow the advice of your primary doctor and endocrinologist. I have just seen too many men spend months or years with gels with sub optimal results. Many men are diagnosed with depression and are not really depressed (I have no idea if this applies to you), but the presumed depression is base dupon low T.
My recommendation would be to pursue this but if a few months pass and results are modest consider another approach. Pellets are one approach to have smooth levels of T and are placed every 4 months.
My son had FLU with cold and congestion in December and after that in January I saw a small rash near his top eyelid. Slowly the rash spreaded on both the eyes, and is there since then. It has been 4 months and I still see the black rash around his eyes shattered. Not sure if this is HSP. I took him to ENT specialist where she did is scan which showed his sinuses are fine. I also showed it to our pediatritian and she does not know what it can be. She referred us to a dermatologist by saying that it looks like a rash ruling out the possibility of lack of sleep or sinus infection.
If anyone has experienced similar or knows about something similar please respond.
Hello. My problem is in my groin area: itching and odor. You and I and some others in this forum might have a condition known as trimethylaminuria (TMAU). Research it online. There is a test that costs about $ that will tell you if you have this condition. If you do, there is a certain diet that allows you to manage the odor. But you can also use the diet without taking the test and see if it helps you. If it does, then you have TMAU. I'm told that it takes up to 6 months to tell whether the diet is working. To find out more about the test and TMAU, look up MEBO.
