For decades, men have been deprived of the best testosterone optimization because doctors constantly misinterpret the literature.

They make assumptions that aren’t backed by evidence and concern themselves with issues that aren’t even there.

These myths don’t just lead people into the hands of the wrong doctors, subscribing to them can actually compromise the beneficial effects of the treatment itself.

Does testosterone cause blood clots? Why do men need to stop blocking estradiol and DHT?

In part 2 of my discussion with Medical Director and CEO of Tier 1 Health and Wellness, Dr. Keith Nichols, we dispel more TOT myths, and set a lot of the biggest assumptions straight.

“Testosterone is essentially a prohormone. It exerts its beneficial effects through its active metabolites at the tissue level. Do not interfere with testosterone’s beneficial effects.” -Dr. Keith Nichols

  3. How testosterone myths corrode the benefits of the treatment
