Well, dhea levels start to decline in your mid twenties. I normally recommend 40 as a good starting point although you could get a blood test to determine what your precise levels are. I do not think at 30 you would see any significant benefit.

Hi. New to CEM. Have read a lot of articles on TRT and since I am in my fifities I am considering. Have found it difficult to assess the correct protocols and haven't found a local Dr yet. Can someone direct me to the best thread on this? There is alot of confusing info out there. One lab told me that after a cycle one's natural T production will often come back stronger. But I have not read this anywhere.

Never heard either. But once an Endocronologist told that it is possible, but I think it's nonsense. Mind you she priscribed me sustanon 250 every 4 weeks, and I said go to hell.

well, keep on reading and researching

it is a very under-studied area, you're kind of on your own, which is why the net is a good place to share info and real life experiences

my bias sides with jbold, if one hormone, why not all, lol

one thing can't be stressed enough is bloodwork, without bloodwork all's your doing is guessing, and at our age, guessin ain't the way to go

good luck

Here's a general article. Take a look and then get back with some questions.

lol, i guess under-studied, is the wrong word

understood by the general public, and embraced by majority of doctors

my basic premise is women have had hrt for 50 years, us not so long, so there is still lot's of bad and wrong info out their, along with a large statistical data base of how it all works in different cases

Does anyone have a table for "optimal" Testosterone levels by age? I asking "optimal" not "normal". My apologies if I missed it in one of the forums, but I first tried a search.

IMO, there's no optimal test levels, some men feel happy at the lower end of the reference ranges (300-1000 ng/dl) others need to be closer of the higher end.
