    Also so found out my vitamin D is abnormally low 9.3 so I have to start 50k units a week for 12 weeks to see if my vitamins goes up, the endo said getting my vitamin D up could increase my testosterone levels a bit.
    I believe vitamin D deficiency can also lead to symptoms similar to low T. Hopefully supplementing will help.

    I have had my vitamin d show low and a month later no changes and was good. Happened twice two different labs. vitamin D can skew easy. Best bet just take 2000 iu otc supp. Get retested see what Happens

    I figure I will give an update. I am now laying in my urologist office and had 12 pellets inserted in my bum lol. I was given the option of shots, gels or pellets, but I have issues with elevated cpk levels and intramuscular shots would not be a good idea so I opted for pellets instead of gels. Let’s see what happens

    ďSaferĒ meaning you donít have to stick yourself with a needle once a week?

    Some diabetics takes multiple shots a day. There is almost zero risk of infection so long as the proper protocol is followed.

    Shots are are also far less painful than getting a pellet implanted in your ass.

    The biggest reason pellets are inferior is that they donít allow precision: your doctor will literally guess what dose you need and then you are stuck with that dose for 3-4 months. Based on bloodwork he will guess again and youíre in for another 3-4 months on a new dose.

    Getting dialed in on trt takes time with shots. It could take over a year on pellets.

    If you want no part in managing your trt and if you are certain you wonít run a cycle then you could consider pellets.
    gosh pellets sounds horrible
