Jay Campbell has many excellent podcasts on testosterone and TRT. The podcasts he did a few years ago with Cernovich led me to get tested and as a 30 year old found 480ng/dl. Under the old labcorp values thats ~17%th percentile and what I’d expect if I was in my late 50’s or 60’s. That’s less than optimal for me. Urologist said, of course, that I was too young for TRT and my values were “fine”. The anti aging clinics near me in the north east cost around $3k a year but if you are enterprising and can figure out bitcoin you can devise your own course of treatment via online sources and it might only cost say $600/year. Do your own research, learn how to use a needle, and get your bloodwork done regularly. As Mangan always tells us, you are in charge of your own health, not your doctor, and if your hormones are out of whack you need to get that fixed!
Testosterone replacement therapy in the US for both men and women has reached a much higher level of recognition over the past several decades. In just over a half-century, the number of men seeking testing to establish a normal testosterone level baseline, which is an excellent means of being able to accurately track its natural decline, has grown well beyond all expectations. The Internet has played a large role in the exploding awareness of how critical it is to maintain normal testosterone levels throughout life, if an adult hopes to enjoy an active, healthy and fulfilling maturity. Any man who takes the time to determine what his normal testosterone level is before the symptoms caused by its decline begin to appear will find himself ahead of the game if and when the time comes to replenish his dwindling hormonal supply.
