    Too funny you should say that...I also think it could be low thyroid

    Thanks Wendy! Your advice definitely sits right with me....she just hates meds but at some point when you feel bad enough your willingness changes. Getting older sucks! Just when you get the means to start doing what you like the body starts to make a fuss!

    Have these issues been discussed with her physician?

    We are just in the process of getting hormone panels....my experience in Canada is that our physicians are not as forward thinking as their U.S. counterparts when it comes to aging and hormones.
    For example my doctor will only test my TSH (I take .112mcg synthroid for 20+ years)
    and prescribed me TRT (Test E 200mg/ml 1ml/wk)
    He refuses to test estrogen levels as "thats for women".
    Hopefully her new doc is better...we know her and shes younger so hopefully that helps.

    She can try some t3 to see if it works
    if it doesn't, thyroid always comes back to normal when stopping.

    And your doc is CORRECT w few exceptions bc the risks of TRT may outweigh the benefit at higher TT levels.

    Hi Dr. Jim
    Im not sure I understand what your saying.
    I am on TRT (not my wife) and I am also taking Synthroid for hypothyroidism (partial ablation when I was a teenager).
    My complaint is that I would like more test done to improve how I feel (Ie. t3, free, estrogen, shbg ect.) and he will only test for TSH and testosterone.
    I get the government here is coming down on docs for the costs of diagnostic testing and also plugging the system up with unnecessary tests, but once a treatment is chosen I feel its only responsible to get the right info to make adjustments.
    Any way my point was Id like her to get a more thorough review of where shes at than ive gotten

    Higher energy, fat loss, better work outs etc. But it's very complex and age dependent and lots of other things

    Make sure you get her igf-1 levels checked at 1 iu. Most women don't convert exogenous GH as well as men do. They sometimes need a littler more so not sure if 1 iu is enough.

    Test could go up a little as well. Maybe 15 mg a week and I would look to a doc for recommended doses on estrogen/progesterone pills as well. No need for primo at this point as @rpbb stated.

    You just really need to get her hormones back up and normal and she will be feeling better and drop some weight while eating good and training.
