Greetings,

Thank you for choosing us to get an opinion regarding your friend’s health issues.

Based on your explanations, he is having low testosterone level and is having testosterone replacement therapy. You want to know if it is advisable to take Sustanon as part of TRT.

For your information, there are multiple reasons that could lead to this condition:

  • Undescended testicles: When the testicles fail to descend from the abdomen before birth
  • Klinefelter’s syndrome: A condition in which a man is born with three sex chromosomes: X, X, and Y.
  • Hemochromatosis: Too much iron in the blood causes testicular failure or pituitary damage
  • Pituitary disorders caused by drugs, kidney failure, or small tumors
  • Kallmann syndrome, a condition connected to abnormal hypothalamus function
  • Inflammatory diseases, such as tuberculosis, sarcoidosis, and histiocytosis, which can impact the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus
  • HIV/AIDS, which can affect the pituitary gland, hypothalamus, and testes
  • Physical injury to the testicles: Injury must occur to both testicles to affect testosterone levels.
  • Mumps orchitis: A mumps infection can injure testicles.
  • Cancer treatment: Chemotherapy or radiation can damage testicles.
  • Normal aging: Aging affects production and response to hormones.
  • Obesity: High body fat can affect hormone production and response.
  • Medications: Opioid pain meds and steroids can affect function of the pituitary gland and hypothalamus.
  • Concurrent illness: Severe emotional stress or physical stress from an illness or surgery can cause the reproductive system to temporarily shut down.

Drugs used for the TRT is depending on the underlying causes where Sustanon is known to be one of them.

I hope the above statement does help you in a way and if you need further assistance and explanations from us, you can talk to our doctor online. Thank you.
