    testosterone testing for veterans by the VA

    it's for vets with a low test level with an incomplete sci and have trouble walking. If you qualify, you'll get testosterone or placebo shots weekly for a year, they test you for muscle mass and bone density monthly, they will pay for travel.

    Kessler did testosterone studies/trials in individuals with a SCI.

      Yes, testosterone levels in men with SCI have been studied for some time. Here are just a few of the studies (most done within the VA):

        I was part of the Kessler trials and they were great. Worth doing if people can get in. Many positive results.
