Is Your T Low?

Updated on September 17, 2015
Stay on top of your T.
Stay on top of your T.

Have you checked?

Across the landscape of measurables, your T level emerges as really important. You might think that vitamin C or vitamin D matter. You'd be a little correct but the person next to you tracking their T knows even more than you think. We here at the Institute for the Painfully Obvious recognize a trend when we see one.

A pop culture health craze doesn't have to smack us in the face before we jump in with both feet to ride the gravy train of success into the sunset of six-figure bank accounts.

It's all good and we want a long healthy guzzle.

T Matters

When you wake up in the morning, look forward to brewing a quenching refreshment. Simply reflecting on the beverage imminently gracing your mouth should be sufficient to send you bounding out of bed.

Be prepared the night before by setting out proper accouterments. Knowing what's waiting on the kitchen counter offers encouragement. Basic orange juice rates disparagement. We prefer high quality equipment purpose-built for the purpose you have in mind. It might not be a grilled cheese sandwich but then again very little is these days.

Should a doctor be involved?

Opt for qualified medical guidance if you have a history of low T. Excessively low T might require an excessively good physician. If your family seems robust and athletic at reunions, perhaps the collective and individual T levels contributing to your branches of life just need a little boost now and then. Don't get carried away: your T metrics nay be just fine. You could be suffering from some other pop culture ailment such as insufficient cable TV channels or last years Keds.

Aspirin is no substitute

Modern local news outlets report on studies indicating possible existential correlations between perceived T levels and aspirin intake. Interesting, it is, that 'they' come up with such hypotheses smack in the middle of sweeps. Major college grant-getting departments readily enter this fray, proving conclusively that no one is listening but money continues to be allocated.

Do you work out?

I work out. Daily I exercise the joints and rollers and belts of elliptical machines. Such activity ensures that my T level remains the least of my worries as strained calf muscles prevent me from walking down the stairs faster than an arthritic snail.

We should all work out so as to prevent low T levels in our lives. Remaining active and financially supporting local fitness centers provides much-needed jobs for our neighbors and keeps us from doing push-ups in the street. I, gentle reader, much prefer to sweat my way to higher T levels rather than engage bayonet-sized injections or unwieldy horse pills.

T Street, Eureka, KS. No lie.

There are a lot of T places.

Like I said, there are a lot of T places.

In Conclusion

This will be a long conclusion because I am only at 500 words. At this point I would typically reinforce those words already written. Sadly, not enough words were written, obligating me to improvise. Remaining on topic seems important so I will mention T levels again. To reiterate: T levels should be measured by humans sporting qualified medical training. Do not stop by the local strip mall and visit a T center that yesterday was a pizza and bowling emporium. Your T level deserves more than that.

We also discussed aspirin and we remotely hinted at the vague possibility of ancillary drugs affecting T levels. This may or may not be true. If you find yourself looking here for authoritative medical counsel you may find yourself imminently confused. Seriously, browse over to Wikipedia.

Here is a handy poll to break the flow of the article

How often do you check your T?

See results

Stay with me, you are almost to the place where you can leave comments

Do you know if the poll contributes to the overall word count? I don't.

It's been fun discussing T levels with you and your Internet-enabled device. I hope you return back to enjoy more fine articles by real authors such as drbj. It can only get better.

Dang, I was 2 words short. Now I'm not.

      Very funny, nicomp, and surely one of your most exquisite, explicit explications regarding the T-level thingy.

      @fpherj48 : I hear you. If he has the $ he can buy the T or you can put him in a BMW and he will forget about the T.

      At this point in my life.....the second most important attractive thing about a man is LOW T levels. ....the first being high $ levels.

      High or one can ever accuse me of being less than honest and practical.

      I don't know what we would do without your entertaining contributions, nicomp. You've started my day with a good chuckle.

      The good news is that people who took meds to lift their T can now sue if they died or almost died!
