I’m just shy of age 71. I’ve always had a high sex drive, still do. I’ve only had two T tests, three years ago, 260, recently, 290. I don’t know if that was normal variation, or due to progesterone cream applications over the last few years. My Medicare insurer turned down a prescription the urologist wanted for Androgel. To help with weight loss. Despite those T numbers, I’m still randy as hell, and despite my alcohol consumption, my balls are still huge per internet sources. And many lovers over the years. (The urologist didn’t say anything was wrong.) The other morning I woke up with wood, walked out to the patio, and urinated a strong stream with a dick curving heavenward.
Anabolic processes tend toward "building up" organs and tissues . These processes produce growth and differentiation of cells and increase in body size, a process that involves synthesis of complex molecules . Examples of anabolic processes include the growth and mineralization of bone and increases in muscle mass. Endocrinologists have traditionally classified hormones as anabolic or catabolic, depending on which part of metabolism they stimulate. The classic anabolic hormones are the anabolic steroids , which stimulate protein synthesis, muscle growth, and insulin .  The balance between anabolism and catabolism is also regulated by circadian rhythms , with processes such as glucose metabolism fluctuating to match an animal's normal periods of activity throughout the day. 
The most common adverse reactions to somatropin therapy are joint pain, headache, flu-like symptoms, peripheral edema (water retention), and back pain. Less common adverse reactions include inflammation of mucous membranes in the nose (rhinitis), dizziness, upper respiratory infection, bronchitis, tingling or numbness on the skin, reduced sensitivity to touch, general edema, nausea, sore bones, carpal tunnel syndrome, chest pain, depression, gynecomastia, hypothyroidism, and insomnia. The abuse of somatropin may cause diabetes, acromegaly (a visible thickening of the bones, most notably the feet, forehead, hands, jaw, and elbows), and enlargement of the internal organs. Due to the growth promotion effects of human growth hormone, this drug should not be used by individuals with active or recurring cancer.
