Thread: Testosterone

    I think every male with spinal cord injury should consider testosterone replacement therapy. As of now, the only treatment for osteoporosis is testosterone. Injections are the cheapest delivery method but any delivery method is better than nothing. I use Androderm with modest results.

    I got mine tested because of always feeling tired. My results came today. test level is 363 free test is 152 My doctor thinks thats fine because its within the normal range. I'm going to talk to my urologist about gel or injections to raise it up some to see if that helps with my fatigue

    I just got mine tested last week, ~370. Going next Weds to speak with urologist to go over options. Thanks for starting this thread, I am curious as to how it will affect me with it boosted higher. I already go to the gym/workout and am usually a sexual tyrannosaurus but more often than not have been feeling sluggish, should be interesting.

    While seeing a urologist would be fine, the best doctor to see in such a situation is an endocrinologist. Hormones are their specialty.

    As an update, my urologist sent me out with a script for clomiphene citrate (Clomid). After about 4 weeks my count was just over 600. We've increased the dosage (I was on 25mg and now 50mg) as of last week. I will update after another few weeks when I get blood tested again. Feeling less sluggish but no superman. I have Blue Cross and they cover it. I pay ~$4 for a month's pills.
