New Data On Why Some Men Don’t Need Phlebotomy w/ Dr. John Crisler

People have always been concerned about blood getting too thick or viscous on Testosterone Replacement Therapy. In some recently revealed new research, the good news is, this data has proven this isn’t the case! Why is it actually normal to have a hemoglobin level of 21? What other conditions is Polycythemia common in? What is the medical industry getting wrong about Polycythemia and TRT? On this episode, Dr. John Crisler talks about the importance of ferritin, tracking RDW and the falsehoods of testosterone replacement therapy.

You don’t want to limit your blood by limiting your iron, because ferritin does a lot more for us than just carry iron for blood. – Dr. John Crisler

Listen to the full episode: At the start of the show, Dr. John shared the new data about Polycythemia and why it’s good news for people concerned about their blood getting too thick on TRT. He also talked about other conditions where Polycythemia can occur, and how altitude can increase your hemoglobin without posing health risks. He shared on the mindsets that are informing the medical industry’s attitude on TRT, and falsehoods about the treatment that aren’t helped by the healthcare model.

Dr. John also shared his insights on:

  • Erythrocytosis vs. Polycythemia
  • How people confuse Polycythemia and Polycythemia Vera
  • The causes of a rise in platelets
  • The health risks of bloodletting
  • Why it’s important to track RDW
  • TRT delivery systems and which one is more like to make blood thicker
  • Synthetic drugs and their role in increased heart attacks and strokes
  • How the internet has given us power over personalized healthcare

When blood becomes thicker it carries more oxygen, and this was always thought to be a risk for people on TRT. With recent studies showing there’s no risk for this, men won’t need phlebotomies or bloodletting in most cases. -Dr John Crisler

This means you avoid the risk of lowering your ferritin levels. It’s also important for doctors to track other metrics aside from Polycythemia to get a clearer picture of what’s in your blood, and how ‘at risk’ you may be for strokes and or heart attacks. In Summary:

The literature supports no harm of erythrocytosis caused by testosterone administration or living at altitude. Physiologic erythrocytosis DOES NOT require phlebotomy in spite of the rest of the world thinking that it does require phlebotomy. Dr Neal Rouzier
