Now this is a remarkable change if you think about it. The "concentration" of testosterone and estrogen - estradiol is what really counts - changed by 24% from just one lifestyle change. Imagine what could happen as you pile on some of the other Testosterone Increasing Techniques and Estrogen Lowering Strategies that I have mentioned on the web site. There is no reason that you cannot dramatically improve your ratio of testosterone to estradiol (unless you happen to be training for the Olympics with a professional trainer).

It would be best to also have your estrogen and progesterone levels evaluated. Based on the results you have, it appears that testosterone deficiency is certainly present, and I would expect many of your symptoms to improve with TRT. That being said, I recommend against BioT pellet implantation. Admittedly, their marketing pitch is fantastic, but in reality they fail to live up to the hype. Where they claim to be natural and bio-identical, this is rather misleading. First, when it comes to testosterone, there is no functional difference in bio-identical and synthetic forms. This is very important in estrogen and progesterone therapy, but not for testosterone. But, the real issue is patient safety. The testosterone we use starts in a lab and finishes in a lab, and is the best pharmaceutical grade, name-brand medication available. They source theirs form plant-based sterols (making it “natural”), but it must then be manipulated in a lab to create a more refined and potent powder form. This is then shipped to whichever local compounding pharmacy is chose and all pellets are made exactly the same way.
