how likely is it to get acne on a TRT dose...say 250mg
i got my blood work back the other day and my test was:
test total: 430 reference range: 260-1000
% free test: 2.49 reference range: 1.0 - 2.7
test free: 107.1 reference range: 50-210
IGF-1: 264 reference range: 71-290
i knew i wasn't gaining like i used to for some reason! i had fairly bad acne growing up and somewhat up until now. i'm 36yrs old, 215lbs, 6'. i just want enough to bump up my levels a couple of hundred points but obviously i don't want acne. what should i do?
anyone experience acne with this sort of low dose?

It is up to your body bro.
You could take 100mg and get acne like crazy and I could take 1g(1000mg) and not get any acne..
I can't really say if your going to get acne or not. I don't on any of my cycles. But I never had bad acne as a kid.
Just give it a try. There are things that will help witht the acne. Use dawn dish soap.

Big is right. Depends on your genetics. Did you have acne as a teenager? If you did, you are just as likely to get if from TRT as you test goes back to teenage level.
A clean diet will help, so will otc products. Don't know about dawn dish soap, but that may work too.
If it is a big deal, answer the question if you had as teenager, if the answer is yes, you are about 90% to get some zits.

I've seen people break out terribly on 100mg of cyp a week and others nothing.

best thing you can do is to start taking care of your skin before you break out. Use a face wash with benzoyl peroxide twice a day, and a scrub with salycilic acid every day in the shower. That combo is usually enough to keep acne at bay when you start from a clean slate. Once it's set in however, it's much harder.
