    Androgel for a Anorexic?

    Hey, for the guys that do not know what androgel is, it is the #1 transdermal testosterone gel out. After visitng the manufacturer of Androgel's website and hypogonadia?, that i might be in need of some more testosterone . The reason i am considering taking androgel is becasue i used to be a mild anorexic when i was 15 years old and i fear that the lack of food at such a primal age for growth has affected my test production and growth . Now that i am 18, I haven't grown since then and my "junk" has stunted as well. my body is extremely out of proportion as of now. my under-developed shoulder width and my fully developed skull does not go hand in hand and on top of that, i am naturally bottom heavy. I feel the need to take this becasue my older brother who is 11 months older than me, overtowers me by 4 inches. Am i too young to take this? How about some gh?

    you should consult a LIBERAL physician and you will likely be put on some type of therapy (GH and/or androgen).

    anorexia can cause severe HPTA issues, you may need replacement and stimulatory therapy (used intermittantly) to restore a more normal hormonal pattern. if this is possible-- such damage during developmental stages may require lifetime replacement.

    you really need a full blood work up and consultation with a endocrinologist (a liberal one)

    Well if you seriously care about it, you will spend the money for good treatment.
