ok they didnt' check all his T scores nor did they check his estradiol levels. They also didn't check his IGH1 levels for HGH. Since he is on TRT they should at least be checking all the T levels (just not free T) and estrogen/estradiol levels. (and I hope he is going to a doc that actually looked for the cause of these defencies and not just start treating them)

That being said. usually its kind of a cascading failure the testicles stop working, leading to adrenal fatigue.

Thanks for your reply Benji. He went to another doctor who checked the hgh which came back at 109 i think he said they should be between 250-300. Is it true that hgh, low testosterone and adrenal fatigue causes your hgh to drop?

Will insurance companies pay for hgh if it's a need for HGH?

most insurance companies will not pay for HGH unless there is a medical condition that caused it. tumor damage to the pit gland for example. Even then the insurance companies will fight it becuase it is very expensive. (luckly my plan had a no preapproval on prescriptions so they couldnt' argue about it. though I bet they wish they could)

its all connected. since I started taking HGH my T levels went very high close to 900 (which is over normal levels) and it uncovered a Thyroid problem (more lily the thyroid was working to hard to counter the loss of hgh and it went Kaput when I started taking the injections) I'm having to wait to see what the thyroid medicine will do to the my levels and I might have to lower my T application.

That's great news Benji. You seem to know so much about HGH an di'm glad that you do.

When he went to the doctor yesterday she said she was going to see if the insurance company would pay for it or a portion of it. His levels came back at 109 when they should be between 200-300 something like that. They put him on thyroid medicines and increased that.

I don't understand where this fever is coming from the last couple of days. Hasn't had a fever in about 20 years.

I was just going back looking at some of my old post where his testosterone level was 214. since then he's been taking cyponiate injections, but doesn't feel any better. i know here recently the doct decreased that dosage b/c the dhea was to high.

Prolactin is the pit test correct which is 7.4. That means no signs of pit tumor right?
