Cheapest place for trt treatment uk

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

been on TRT for 8 months, currently with balance ky hormones (too expensive imo) 

I pay £180 a month for sustonan, Ai, HCG and levothyroxine. Is there any where cheaper in the uk? 

 

Thanks

You could look at the leger clinic, they have prices listed on their website.  

Or the NHS, which costs £9  a prescription.

Alternatively the products you are getting can be sourced at a fraction of the price. £180 would buy you a years worth although you will only be able to get pharmaceutical grade hcg and Ai. The sustanon will be from an underground lab. Run twice yearly bloods through a provider like medichecks. The nhs is still your best route, however

My advice if you don’t want to go NHS route would be to source your own, you won’t get hcg off the nhs, and the amount of time you’ll need off from work trying to get appointments and endocrinologist referrals will negate any cost savings you may get, if any at all. As UGL is probably cheaper than the NHS anyway 

Find a site that sells decent branded test, I use Pharmacom; the same source will sell hcg

You shouldn’t need an AI on TRT dose 

Regarding T4. Again can source your own, although, GPs can prescribe this without having to be referred so I’ll leave that one with you

But, if it’s BMH that’s diagnosed you with hypothyroidism (or even low test for that matter) I’d be wanting a second opinion as I don’t agree with the way they operate.

Making up their own reference ranges to suit themselves etc, it’s an abuse of the system imo. Also Having to draw your own bloods, and at your own cost... it’s a proper money maker 

*If any BMH reps reading this, and think anything I’ve said is wrong then feel free to come at me, bro

As above - NHS script is £9 and if you’re put on tostran that’s 2 bottles so just under 6 weeks

as above, if you actually need all the stuff you are taking the NHS is the cheapest you are going to get.

Depends on your area and how busy the endos are (hint - ‘very’). You’ll need bloods done by your GP before a referral then possibly more before starting treatment. I waited about 7-9 months in total

Very low.  Under the low end of the ref. range, which when i had an nhs test in November was 7 - 27nmol/l.  So basically 6.9 and below. Get one over 7nmol and it'll be "bye bye, thanks for coming"

Gendergp

£20 per month, plus prescriptions @ £5 a vial.

Wouldn't touch BMH with a barge pole.
