Response to More Plates More Dates – Can SARMs Permanently Shut You Down?

More Plates More Dates recently made a video ( responding to The Bro Scientist’s experience after 3 cycles of SARMs, having shut down his T production and requiring TRT. In this video I’m responding to Derek, pointing out some of what I think he gets right as well as some questions I have. This is a complicated case, but it’s not unlike some of what I see in my practice, and it’s important to note that requiring TRT is often the end result of using these agents. At the end of the video I have a bigger picture question: what do you think about guys who are not doctors giving advice on using PEDs, claiming to have a plan for avoiding side effects, and interpreting labs?

As the Anabolic Doc, since 2003, I’ve provided men who are using or have used anabolic steroids a confidential, ethical and professional medical venue to discuss their use. I do NOT in any way support the use of any performance enhancing drugs – PEDs, anabolic steroid or other medicine for muscle building or body transformation. The “off-label” use of PEDs, as such agents is considered elicit and may lead to adverse health outcomes. Please consult an expert health professional regarding any medical agent and do NOT use any medicine without the explicit advice and supervision of an appropriate medical expert.
