So many men fixate on their testosterone numbers, but why is that a bad idea? Are you getting the correct test to measure your estrogen levels? What should you know about cholesterol? On this episode, we discuss how to understand certain biomarkers in a blood panel.
"It’s more important that you feel good and have no side effects than it is to have a specific number." -Jay Campbell
- It’s important to understand the oxygenation of your red blood cells.
- If you have a level of above 200 in cholesterol, make sure that you are: exercising, trying to suppress your insulin sign, and doing cardio and resistance training before you even consider going on statins.
- Estrogen is still necessary for some key functions, and you can only consider suppression when you have side effects AND the correct test for it.
At the start of the show we talked about the importance of measuring White Blood Cells and Red Blood Cells, hemoglobin and hematocrit. We talked about why keeping close track of your insulin is so necessary, and the importance of testing for estrogen the right way.
We also discussed:
- What people get wrong about erythrocytosis
- Whether taking statins is a good idea
- Measuring prolactin
The most important thing when you want to get optimized is to get your bloodwork done. It helps you get a clearer picture of your health, and it keeps you from going down the path of the sick care system. You have to go private, because getting this information is not how the sick care model functions, and you can easily get manipulated by a garden-variety GP. Ultimately, the more you know, the more you can optimize yourself.

I can't thank you two guys enough for all the information that you provide here. Thank god for the internet, there's never a better time to be alive!!!! I've been on TOT (how about that, you converted me from saying TRT, haha) for years but always felt like something wasn't quite right. Learned more listening to you guys than from my own doctor(s). Making an appointment with Dr. Rob to get myself totally "dialed in" with all of this. Just wanted to say thanks so much for sharing all of this information. Love your passion getting this important message out there!!!
So true on prescribing statens, I had a blood clot due to low magnesium from acid blockers. Cardiologist didn't even consider my low magnesium. FYI magnesium is essential to break up any clotting. The rest of my heart was squeaky clean and in general my health is/was excellent. Sometimes you have to fire your doctor and find one that is competent. BTW the same doctor also tried to prescribe further acid blockers that would interact with the statens making everything worse. Run from the acid blockers as fast as you can, they destroy the gut and make it almost impossible to digest food correctly in addition to what I've already discussed. Another FYI make sure your magnesium levels optimal.
Guys great show. Your are helping a lot of guys out there.
I have been suffering from a lack of penis sensitivity in the head of my penis but i get fairly strong errections. This makes it hard for me to orgasm during sex. Could this be low e2? Im not an AI
Patients taking Viagra are less likely to suffer a heart attack, new research claims.
Men taking the impotence drug were found to have a lower risk of having a heart attack or dying from heart failure than those not on the medication.
The findings mean Viagra could soon be used to treat hundreds of thousands of heart failure patients and even prevent fatal heart attacks, scientists say.
Experts from the University of Manchester studied 6,000 diabetic patients who had been given Viagra to treat erectile dysfunction.
The drug relaxes muscle cells in the blood vessels supplying the penis, allowing more blood to flow there.
This increased blood flow increases the likelihood of getting an erection.
Given the increasing reports of deaths in which the use of Viagra may be implicated, clinicians need to exercise caution when advising their patients with heart
Experts believe a key ingredient in Viagra called PDE5i, which relaxes blood vessels, also prevents damage to heart cells.
Heart failure is caused by the heart failing to pump enough blood around the body at the right pressure.
It most often occurs because the heart muscle has become too weak or stiff to work properly and is usually treated with medication which supports the heart.
Despite diabetics being prone to heart problems, the study participants did not suffer as many incidents as similar patients not on the drug.
