What to know before Starting Testosterone Replacement Therapy / TRT

what’s going on guys test levels here
coming at you with the top ten things
you need to know about trt or consider
about trt before starting this is not
medical advice and the medical
disclaimer murder now so the number one
thing that you need to do before even
thinking about trt is get an extensive
blood test you need to get your free
testosterone your total testosterone
your shbg your estrogen your hematocrit
and also your cholesterol panels so you
can get this through your doctor if your
doctor doesn’t want to do that it’s
probably a good sign that you need a new
doctor because they obviously do not
know what they’re talking about if
they’re not going to even let you get a
TR TR a testosterone test so number two
I did a video on how being overweight
lowers your testosterone levels and I’ll
put that right up here the long and
short of it is is testosterone gets
aromatized into estrogen in your fat
cells and the visceral fat which is a
closest to your organs is also really
good at doing this so the heavier you
are the more of your testosterone is
being changed into estrogen estrogen
helps you gain weight as well so it’s a
double-edged negative sword there before
you even start TRT even if you have a
low testosterone level on your blood
test you need to do everything in your
power to lose as much weight as possible
not to be anorexic but to get into a
healthy body range and then most likely
retest and see if that helped raise your
testosterone levels the third thing you
need to know is that being deficient in
certain vitamins and minerals such as
vitamin D zinc can also lower your
testosterone levels so you may want to
look into some supplements like vitamin
d3 zinc daily multivitamin and do your
research on the others I have links in
the description to a lot of the popular
vitamins that matter deficient in which
causes lower testosterone so if you want
to do sort of do your own research but
if you decide to take one click on the
link it helps out the channel I
appreciate it
number four getting eight hours of sleep
is very important for your testosterone
levels your brain pretty
everything so before starting trt you
really need to look at your sleep
schedule and to ask yourself are you
really getting eight hours you know it’s
five hours six hours your body doesn’t
like that it’s not good for any aspect
of your life so you need to get some
more sleep number five are you willing
to put in the time to research
everything about trt I’m not saying get
a PhD or a master’s agreement but you
need to know a lot of stuff you need a
bit of a testosterone free testosterone
shbg estrogen levels you know certain
protocols you know I get on reddit get
on the Facebook group I believe leave
links in the description to those read
through it do your research because
you’re gonna find that your doctor does
not really most likely nobody’s talking
about so you need to take control of
your life as a man do your research know
what you’re putting in your body know
what the effects are and you just need
to be very knowledgeable because there’s
not a lot of knowledgeable people in the
world on this number six are you willing
to go through a lot of bad doctors
probably get a lot of blood tests to be
turned away be told you’re fine be told
to suck it up most doctors are trained
in medicines not in hormones and your
doctor most likely thinks that
testosterone is a hormone which it is
but they don’t view it as medicine
because it doesn’t come from a big
pharmaceutical company that takes it out
to Panera so on so there’s a lot of
horror stories on the reddit and the
Facebook group of men that have even
below range testosterone they have
symptoms of low testosterone and the
doctors just don’t care just so you know
it’s not just going to your doctor
getting a testosterone text if you’re on
the lower end they’re just going to
write you a script and you’re good to go
doesn’t work like that it’s not how the
medical system works so be prepared
number seven are you willing to start
TRT knowing that it could impact your
current and future fertility so if
you’re trying to have kids
TRT can make that sometimes not the
possibility that’s not 100% but if
you’re trying to have kids and you’re on
TRT your body is not producing its own
testosterone your testicles shrink and
you have less sperner you can
combat this by taking HCG as well but
there is no 100% guarantee so do some
research on that and see if that’s the
right decision for you number eight are
you willing to accept that if your
doctor or the doctors that you’ve seen
and after the multiple blood tests that
you’ve taken will not give you trt that
you may have to go to a men’s clinic and
a 150 200 250 dollars a month you may
have to drive there once or twice a week
hopefully it’s once if they’re a good
clinic and get an injection buy them a
lot of these clinics they don’t allow
you to inject on your own they want you
coming in you’re kind of more dependent
on them
you’re not leaving if you don’t if
they’re your ones giving you the
medicine and you don’t have it that’s
just another thing to consider before
jumping on TR today the medicines
themselves are not very expensive but
when you have to go through a clinic
because your doctor or many doctors will
not give it to you that’s your only
option or one of them number nine are
you willing to accept that you may
experience negative side effects on TR T
it may increase your hair loss if you’re
already losing your hair you may get
acne your cholesterol your good
cholesterol may go down your hematocrit
and red blood cell count may go up
there’s lots of different side effects
that can happen it’s not just ice inject
testosterone now I’m a superhuman and I
feel awesome all the time things happen
your estrogen levels can get out of
whack there’s lots of different things
that’s why I said earlier you have to
put in the research without the research
you’re just going blind and it’s not
something you want to do with your
hormones they’re very important they’re
very serious and you don’t want to mess
with them and there are some side
effects that can happen number ten are
you willing to accept that TRT and
testosterone is not medical duct tape
just by injecting a little oil into your
quad or your belly fat it’s not going to
fix everything in your life if you’re
lazy you’re probably still gonna be lazy
if you can’t stick to a diet and you
can’t lose weight you’re probably gonna
do the exact same thing if you’re
getting five hours of sleep injecting
testosterone is locked in and make you
sleep the extra thirty basically what
I’m saying is you have to take
responsibility for your
testosterone is not something that
you’re just going to take and your
life’s going to become ten times better
now it can but if you have to do it on
your own
you can’t just think that this little
hormone that you’re injecting yourself
is going to fix your life you have to
take responsibility for your life you
need to eat healthy you need to go to
the gym you need to get eight hours of
sleep you need to do what everyone knows
it’s healthy stuff to do and if you’re
not willing to do that then you’re
probably wasting your time and money
I’ve got a little bonus one here because
top eleven doesn’t sound cool and that
is that you will possibly need to be on
TRT for the rest of your life not
something that you just take for a
couple months and come back off some
people can come back off and restart
their body’s natural production of
testosterone but some can that’s why
most body builders are gonna be a taking
testosterone for the rest of their life
so this isn’t just something that you’re
gonna take and try something you may do
for a few months to get in better shape
it doesn’t work like that it’s a lot
more serious
it’s more of a lifelong treatment it’s
not something to hop on hop off so take
that in consideration as well and before
you start it like I said it eat healthy
or lose weight get better sleep take
vitamins if you’re deficient and you
just really need to do the healthy stuff
and get your body into the best shape
that it can and see if being overweight
not sleeping eating like garbage not
exercising it was really the cause of
your low testosterone and your symptoms
so that’s probably the most important
long it’s a little bonus one I’m gonna
