Question Prescription caused T-Level decrease

After some lab work my Dr. prescribed Androgel to raise my Testosterone levels. I thought I would get a boost in mass and have more energy while lifting. Follow-up lab work showed my levels decreased. After increasing the dose, more tests reported even lower levels. The sales rep. told my Dr “this can’t happen”.

After being referred to a specialist and more tests, it was precluded that my body shutdowns when it senses additional testosterone. After I stopped, my levels went back up to where they were. (low 200s, sorry I did not catch the units)

Anyone else ever have an experience like that ?

(Doctors were not experienced with BB)

Thanks

No. But was this your regular doc?

I have a feeling that if someone is diagnosed with low test they would be better off asking for a referall to an endocrinologist.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

Thanks

It was my regular Dr.

This being the first time I've taken something stronger than GNC products I learned a lot...and gained even more respect for those of you who understand it.

The endocrine system is very complicated, I personally would ask your general practitioner for a referral to an endocrinologist after all of that. You seem like a prime candidate for HRT, thats about all the help I can provide.
