Biotest

Low Test


#1

Among a slew of other issues, I have low test. Symptoms are as usual, fatigue, brain fog, no sex drive, emotional, weak, etc…
I also have high inflammation, and would like to start combating the issues with supplements as well as diet.

Id like to open up the conversation by asking what supplements Tnation suggests to start taking for reducing estrogen, raising testosterone, and fighting inflammation.

Thanks in advance for any and all advice.

How is diet and exercise? If those are good and still symptoms dr prescribed TRT.

Exercise is non existent…again, absolutely no energy, my brain feels like mush.
Diet was good for a few months then slipped after I started experiencing some of the symptoms I listed.

I know my diet needs work, I’m working on tuning it in.

First, if you have medically low T levels, go to a doc, get tested if you haven’t yet done so, and get T replacement.

If your test levels are normal but low-normal, Biotest’s most powerful supplement for this is <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/alpha-male"target=“new”>Alpha Male.

For inflammation, check into <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/flameout"target=“new”>Flameout and <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/curcumin"target=“new”>Curcumin.

Thanks for the info Chris.
I went to a doctor this past March, They only did Free Test and Total Test tests, both came back low, but not low enough to be on T-replacement I was told. I was also told that at my age 29, that they wouldn’t put me on T-replacement right away anyways because there’s clearly something else going on.
Since then all my symptons have seemed to gotten worse. My insurance (as far as testing and treatments go) sucks so anything I have done will be out of pocket, which at this point I can not afford. (my last test unannounced to me costs $2300) I am still looking into this, by trying to find other avenues for financial assistance.
But in the mean time I figured that the best thing for me to do would be to fight the inflammation issues, decrease the estrogen in my body, and naturally raise my T levels.

In my own head I made a plan of starting on Curcumin, Flameout, and EPMS. Then introducing Rhodiola and Rez-V…then after that Introducing Alpha Male. But again I really don’t know if that’s the right way to go so what do you think?
