Medical Makeover: Just Started Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Well, she dropped by last night and presented me with an incredible opportunity that I could not turn down. It's no great secret that I've been dealing w/ Diabetes for the past 2 years now (since my 40th birthday). For the most … [Read more...]
