Testim
Aug 24, 2003

Nelson,

My doc prescribed me testim 1 at one pack a day. My test levels are arond 700 but my estrodial levels are mildly elevated. My doc would rather increase my androgens as opposed to putting me on arimdiex or nolvadex. If my test levels are not low and i go on testim where will this put my test levels? Will it supplement on my existing levels or lower them? How high could my levels get? Thanks

Response from Mr. Vergel

If you are starting at 700 nanograms/cc, I am afraid you will reach levels above 1300. Watch out for andrigenic side effects at those levels (hair loss, acne, moodiness, polycythemia, sleep apnea, etc). You may want to see more than one endocrinologist. Nelson
