    You've got no worries. 600 is good.

  2. That's pretty good isn't it Tao?
    That's on my to do list get a detailed blood test. I eat 85% healthy now that I bought a vitamix but I gotta have my ribs occasionally and beer. I can still stay strong and I don't lose muscle mass so far but getting lean is and has been a challange. For you guys taking test how's it affecting the hair loss, I'd like to hold onto my hair for a few more years, but that's looking iffy.

    That sounds a bit over the good range:

    "Taking all the factors together, researchers found that the healthiest men overall had testosterone levels between 400 to 600 nanograms.
    They seemed to enjoy the most benefits and experience the least risks associated with the hormone."

    Specially because according to Wiki:

    "Behaviour and personality

    Testosterone levels play a major role in risk-taking during financial decisions."

    Yeah, doc said it was good. I got it tested because I've been really tired lately. But I guess that's not it.

    That's reminds me. My hair has started thinning on top.

    I only noticed it happening after starting the injections. It's possible it was already thinning before taking T shots as I had been wearing my hair very short (2mm). I started wearing my hair a little longer roughly the same time so it's hard for me to say.

    Oh, no question I've been thinning big time since being on testosterone the last six years. :(
    It's called androgenic alopecia. You can try propecia, but it's a known libido killer. Only thing I can think of is a topical that blocks dht at the scalp line. Let me know if you find one that works. Rogaine's pretty weak stuff. Nizoral? Don't know.

    It was 2100 in the past.:eek: That was me being less than smart by injecting 800mg/week for 8 weeks. Lol
