People are concerned about blood getting too thick on TRT. The good news is, new 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

Three Takeaways

  1. It’s generally thought that testosterone shots have a higher risk of thickened blood than creams and gels.
  2. Bloodletting lowers ferritin levels. Ferritin is important because it stores iron and is important in many other body functions.
  3. Breaking the relationship between the FDA and Big Pharma would be a good start for the new administration.

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 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. 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 are for strokes and heart attacks.
