I am 51 and was getting testostorone injections every 3 eeks for the last 13 years. I decided to try this since my insurance would cover with only a 40 copay. I won't get it again.

I was on Androgel for two years with no improvement in numbers. My first insertion of testopel was good but my numbers crashed within two months on eight pellets. My doctor put in ten this time, so I'm hoping for more energy and better control with my diabetes.
