Thread: HGH and Testosterone

  1. #1

    HGH and Testosterone

    For a while, I know many well read SCI's have been investigating experimenting with HGH and also testing their current testosterone levels. I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations on how to go about finding ways for health insurance to supplement hormones.

    Typically, does testosterone come as a patch or gel? What is considered a low dose? Has anyone here found methods to maximize muscle recovery using hormones? I'm all ears.

    Chaz19,
    I just completed a year study at the kessler institute in New Jersey with the testosterone patches. I was on two patches a day containing 24.3 mg of Testosterone. It really helped me out 100%. It increased muscle mass, lost body fat and also decreased my nerve pain. I can't tell you how great I felt on it. I was always very alert and felt energized. I have been off of the patches almost a month and notice a difference in energy levels. I fatigue a lot faster not being on the patches. I would get your levels checked and if you are low get on the patches or injectables. I was told they are a lot less expensive than the patches. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at joemonte@nep.net.

    Chaz,
    I had no side effects at all. They keep on eye on your PSA levels and all blood work a few times a year. I had no changes. The only side effect I heard of was some swelling in the legs. Again, I had none. I am active and like to keep in shape. Maybe that has something to do with side effects based on your lifestyle. Anyway, everything was positive. I wish it did effect my sex drive. Mentally everything is working great . Physically, its another story. The intent of the study is for body mass, fat loss and fatique. It did help me for nerve pain too. I wish the very best.

    I've been thinking about this. more energy sounds good. less nerve pain sounds fan-fucking-tastic. more leg spasms then I have now might push me over the brink. is there an injury level commonly associated with testosterone loss, or is it an across the board kinda thing? - Garro.
