Hi everybody, I hope all you guys are doing great. Can anyone tell me how my dad can get prescribed TRT from a doctor? He is around 50 years old and gained alot of weight recently. I am pretty sure he has low test and would benefit from taking replacement therapy dose. He injured his back(herniated disc) in his 30s so he can't lift weights or run. I am trying to get him to do some cycling so he can loose weight but I think TRT would most definitely help since he has low energy levels and sleepy all the time. Since, I am a steroid user I can easily get him to use one of my vials of test and he knows about my steroid use. But he does not want me to give him test, he is scared because he could get enlarged prostate or prostate cancer. I also think its better that he goes to the doctor, what do you guys think ?
Out of all the "key" workers "frontline" NHS have the best shout at being called that. However, calling supermarket workers, delivery drivers and posties heroes is that stretching it a bit far? I've seen a call for nurses etc to get bonuses like supermarket workers are getting. Should any of them be getting one? Or are they "just" doing their jobs? Discuss.
I know i'm not keeping my story to one thread, but this is really just to alert people to the possibility of their blood test results from various providers being, well, wrong. By a lot. Long story short - i've been tracking my testosterone through Medichecks since early 2018, so coming up for 2 years. Nine tests. Ignoring the first two (on clomid), the rest giving results around the 6 - 8 nmol//l. Last Medichecks test was Nov '19, just over 6nmol. Fairly consistant. In dec '19, bit the bullet, saw nhs doc who took bloods on 18th Dec. Went for my results last night - 11.9nmol/l. My LH was 2.9, roughly the same as my last Medichecks test. So, for 18 months i've had regular private bloods, taken by a nurse, paid for extra fast delivery, always coming back around 6 to 7nmol. Get blood test not long after a 6 result but on nhs - result is double. Props to the doc because after i said "looks like i need to get onto Medichecks about this, i've spent a lot of money with them" he replied he still wanted me to see an endo based on the Medichecks results. Something 'aint right though.... Anyone else had this?
