Doctors are hit are miss, my buddy pretty much forced his doctor to draw blood, his levels were around 180, and the doctor was real uptight about it, didnt want to prescribe him anything. Would make potato chip comments and say even if he did give test to him it would be a waste and turn into estrogen. My buddy asked, well you could prescribe something for that right? And he said no, test support is all he would prescribe. I will say, my buddy is younger and over weight, so the doctor was pushing him to lose the weight first and get levels checked, but he was not cool about it at all.
I had a doctors tell me I would get prostate cancer like I asked for a blood test and it sounded like he said if I got tested I would get prostrate cancer.
My test come back under low normal and I asked if I could get a script. He said if I use testosterone I will get prostate cancer.
I told him I will take a script for cancer thanks.
Got my script for gel , worked a treat for 3 months then I found injectable’s online Then I found a clinic but stayed with what I had, I changed doctors and my new one wasn’t happy I was using injections. I told her I’m not taking antidepressants anymore so it must be working properly. . Told me need gel because injections will give me prostate cancer. Her endo wouldn’t even look at my bloods. Had no interest in helping me even though I had already had a script for gel.
My doctor wasn’t happy to let me get bloods anymore as she had to leave early when I went to see her so I asked the other doctor for E2 and when she seen my bloods she went off. E2 is a female hormone, you don’t need to be tested for it. She didn’t want me ordering bloods anymore so I went
I then went and started getting scripts from a doctor that also has a hormone clinic.
The problem I found with doctors is they don’t like it is you take your health seriously and educate yourself.
