    Interesting how the new data seems to suggest that testosterone is actually good for the heart.
    Even my workplace doc who wasn't that happy with me being on trt before, had turned around about it after seeing the new studies.

    What's weird for me is how I seem to get more heart palpitations (PVC's and PAC's) when I'm on testosterone. I would be really interested hearing if anyone has knowledge what mechanism could be behind that. Then again maybe I don't actually even have them more, but rather just feel them better.

    No, and my thyroid levels have always been pretty much in the middle of the range.
    Last time my labs were
    TSH: 2.65 (0.40 - 4)
    T4: 15.80 (10 - 21)

    I've had my heart tested by a cardiologist. Ultrasound and multiple ECG's. It was found healthy, with no structural abnormalities. Still no dr was able to tell me what could be the link which makes trt increase my palpitations.

    One of your previous posts suggested you had sleep apnea. How compliant are you with treatment?
