K.O. is a 46yo male who arrived with Rheumatoid Arthritis, fatigue out of proportion and low Testosterone levels.  His prior MD was having difficulty maintaining a therapeutic level and pt arrived for a 2nd opinion.  Pt was trialed on bio-identical Testosterone suspension with significant improvement in his fatigue and pain.  ‘Doc, I’m off of my Percocet and I was on that 3 times a day for over 3years for my pain!’  This patient feels comfortable being able to self-administer an oral/sublingual dose of medication which has no risk of bruising. 

Interestingly, new research is showing how bio-identical HRT helps decrease the severity of Rheumatoid arthritis in women; sounds like it’s helping in men as well.
