Commitment to Testosterone Optimization Therapy is a lifelong one. With that in mind, every tip that can help you stay on track with your treatment is beneficial. There are some things you should know about the potential difficulties you might encounter, and you’ll also come into contact with different opinions about TOT. Here are our golden rules of TOT that you should stick to if you want to make your treatment go as smoothly as possible:
Learning to Inject Yourself Takes Practice
If you take the recommended route of using injectable testosterone as a delivery system, don’t be discouraged if you find it difficult at first. It takes time, practice and experimentation to see what works best for you. However, we can recommend using thinner needles (smaller gauge needles) as we find them necessary when it comes to frequent lifelong use of needles. Intramuscular and subcutaneous injections are two options for injecting that you should try out and see which one you prefer.
Acne and Baldness Can Manifest
Unfortunately, TOT can accelerate the rate of hair loss caused by Androgenetic alopecia, which is a genetic condition. So, if you already have it, you might lose your hair faster than you would without TOT. When it comes to acne, multiple factors are affecting their presence, so it’s hard to determine with certainty whether they’ll manifest. It’s possible that an imbalance between estrogen and testosterone might cause acne. In any case, there are strategies to cope with both of these side effects which you can discuss with your physician.
Don’t Buy Into Mainstream Media Perception of TOT
When TOT is used correctly in standard population groups, there’s no place for common mainstream media myths. Don’t buy the tales about TOT causing heart disease, prostate issues, cardiovascular issues, penis size reduction, loss of emotional control and other fabrications and wrong assumptions.
Adjust Your Calorie Intake to Your Physical Fitness Goals
Becoming knowledgeable about the connection of calorie intake and your physical fitness goals will make the process of changing your physique with TOT much more successful. There’s a specific amount of calories you need to consume for each of the three main goals: muscle gain, fat loss, or maintenance. Additionally, you should learn everything you can about your body type, insulin sensitivity and how the three primary macronutrients affect your body.
Consider Additional Supplements That Suit Your Needs
In the TOT Bible, “Chapter 16: Agents of Change” discusses the supplements you can use with TOT to improve your overall health. They range from supplements that help improve focus, increase energy and performance, to those that accelerate your rate of recovery, reduce your insulin signal and build muscle mass. Knowing what you can expect on TOT will help you prepare, and the assistance of your physician will also be invaluable.
