TRT for Hypogonadism

Dear Doctor,
Here is a question that related to the present way that TRT is administered for sufferers of hypogonadism.

Presently, TRT is usually administered in regular doses
so that low t is boosted to an optimum level, which, in ideal conditions results in a fairly consistent testosterone level.

For some people this is ideal as there day to day activities are also fairly consistent.
However, and this is where the problem arises.
In some cases, the sufferers activities may fluctuate from day to day. For example, two days a week I do Judo.

The day after doing Judo I usually experience a low t hangover, caused by the extra stress put on my body due to the extreme physical exertion the day before, some times, this results in suffering low t symptoms for several days.

I believe that the reason why the exertion has on me is because the physical exertion lowers the available testosterone,
I believe that in normal non-hypogonadal men, their endocrine system reacts to the extra physical stress by telling the body to make more testosterone, however this does not happen in a hypogonadal male.

I there fore suggest that perhaps such patients should be considered for extra supplemtation perhaps in the form of fast acting buccal treatment, so that the suffer can simulate a normal endocrine system of a non-hypogonadal male.
