    Hi all,

    I got my blood results back and my test levels are 7.6nmol (haven’t used in a year)

    There was a footnote to say this Level doesn’t qualify my for trt as it’s still inside the low range

    Has anyone else had low test results that did qualify them for trt?

    Or should I put myself on a permanent cruise and if so what dose would you take?

    7.6 should qualify you. The guidance says under 8nmol requires trt so you obviously fulfill that criteria but it's usually based on two tests. You only noted the one?

    Either way it's your choice mate. You know the risks involved i imagine so make peace with whatever decision you make and get on with your life.

    The guidelines state anything below 12 and symptomatic. You qualify for a trial of TRT

    How old are ye?

    Where did you get your blood tests done?

    I had one done which was about 8, a few months later a retest was at 11.

    You will have to take a few tests and talk about symptoms to your GP.

    Ok. Well, I wouldn’t take Superdrug’s test as the be all and end all when it comes to TRT.

    Speak to your GP and get a blood test done through them.

    Your GP should put you on testogel, if you want TRT through NHS.

    IF you want to recover your own testosterone, then PCT protocol, a Vitamin D, Zinc, Omega 3's, & vitamin supplement.

    IF You've been 1 year full 12 months off? depends on how long you were on, depend recovery time.

    I know a lot of lads that run theyre own TRT, usually test-e or cyp etc. Most are in their 40/50's upwards.

    TRT has shown to have good results and health benefits. Increased drive, focus, concentrate, stamina etc. Anything that will help keep you active in life regardless of age is a must.

    I have one friend whos dad is in his 70s and runs 0.5ml of Test-e each week! True story. He did get him some TT400s at one point lol. But preferred a single ester med lol.
