Last week I gave you guys an update regarding my testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). I let you know that after dealing with extremely high testosterone levels (so high that the doctor cut my dose in half), my new test results showed that my levels were actually lower than they were before my treatment began!
Testosterone Replacement Therapy – Going Back To The Original Dose
Since my testosterone levels (both total and free) had dropped well below the “normal” range, my doctor has decided to increase my dose back to the original level.
I posted a video giving a full update on my testosterone replacement therapy, which I have inserted below (you may have to click through to the article or the link to the video if you are reading this via email):
Here is a very general summary in case you are not able to view the video:
- The fear in increasing my dose back to the original amount is that my testosterone may rise to a level considered “too high”
- The greatest danger from my testosterone levels being too high is that I could suffer an enlarged prostate
- I have to take new blood tests in the middle of January in order to check on the treatment
- Along with the testosterone test that I will take a vitamin D test, as well as a test for my PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen)
- I have put a much higher premium on sleep, which has meant forgoing my early-morning gym sessions for the last 4 weeks
Since my main focus is going to be getting lots of sleep (along with starting/finishing various projects), I may only get to the gym 2 or 3 times during the week. Because of this, I plan to go back to some of the H.I.I.T. that I was doing before I started powerlifting. I’ll definitely keep you updated on my progress.
