Dr. Crisler is one of the leaders in the field of hormone replacement therapy and so called interventional endocrinology. He has done some pioneering and outstanding work in this field for several years. He is a highly respected physician and widely followed on internet forums where patients latch on to his every single word.
I would highly recommend this book.
Meanwhile, Testosterone Replacement Therapy is complicated and can cause permanent changes in endocrine function, so don’t try this at home! Don’t do it unless it is clearly necessary, and then only with competent professional supervision. This book points out symptoms that might indicate a need for TRT, but laboratory tests are imprecise and unreliable. So don’t chase numbers on lab printouts, says the author. Don’t treat in the absence of real symptoms. If a man has a healthy libido and erectile function he does not need this therapy, which can upset delicate hormonal balances. “Adding, or changing the dose of, a medication is likened to dropping a pebble into a pond.” That said, “low normal” is not good enough because “a man’s body runs on testosterone.”
This book discusses blood and urine tests, but makes no mention of saliva testing. Men who don’t like needles should be advised that this program involves frequent blood testing, and its delivery systems include injections. TRT can cause thickening of blood, which may require therapeutic blood draws. Each blood draw changes the nutritional and immune statuses of the patient.
The book has little to say about prostate cancer, except that it does not contraindicate TRT. Consideration of this book is recommended to men who clearly need the therapy. Illustrated, but no index or bibliography.
I am writing a forthcoming book on TRT and there were some nuggets of wisdom I was able to glean and incorporate into my own research. John is a pioneer in the world of TRT and endocrinology and all of us who live and breathe in this realm owe him a sincere debt of gratitude. I can't recommend this book more stridently if you are a man looking to live a longer and stronger life.
Thank you Dr Crisler!
