I was diagnosed with low T about 2 years ago. Doc put me on Androgel but I only used it until finishing my first refill. The more I read about it, the more I decided I did not want to deal with side effects. Add in that my wife wouldn't touch me for fear of growing a mustache, I dumped that stuff! I began doing a lot of reading on settled on a few items that have helped. My last T test, was up into the normal ranges, though still on the low end. I began taking about 5000 IU of Vitamin D3 (be sure to keep a check on D levels, as you can over do and cause other problems). I then began reading about D-aspartic Acid. I am on my third cycle of DAA with D3 cut back to about 1500 IU a day. I have noticed some positive effects.
I began to lose some of the stubborn stomach (viseral) fat, once I started the DAA. Strength has been good and libido is up. I am finishing a cycle of DAA and Triazole (an anti-estrogen) and am please with the results.
IMHO, the natural options are a lot like the creatine arguments. Some folks are responders, some are not. All I can say, is research and then give it a try, research is the operative word.
