I was 47 when diagnosed with Hemochromatosis, discovering at the same time that I had contracted Hepatitis C probably 35 years earlier. I cleared the virus after 48 weeks of interferon and ribavarin. My ferritin level when diagnosed was in excess of 4,700. As a consequence, I have quite severe arthritis, and chronic pain. I had always been otherwise fitter than average, which masked early symptoms. It's now been 8 years of basically a sedentary lifestyle, which I hate. I continue to lose muscle mass, because of the difficulty of exercising. I flirted with testosterone therapy ( gel form ), three years ago, but ceased after seemingly putting on excess weight, particularly my waist and chest - I seemed to develop breasts. Is there a way, or indeed any benefit to a testosterone boost to improve strength without the afore - mentioned side effects?
