      I'm not living with this asshole screaming forever. That's all there is to it. I'm done with all the carelessness, all the ignorance and all the in humane bull shit. This has disturbed my life so much over the past year and a half. All this lack of awareness, doctors not having a clue is unacceptable.

      I wish there was one. I mean there is but it's the one that ends it all. I can truly understand why severe sufferers choose that route.

      Thank you all for your support. You all hang in there as well. Keep researching and hope to get on some kind of trial somewhere.

      I know. It's so awful and I am only 5 months in. You can't think about having to live like this forever or you'll lose your mind. You never know what will happen in the future. I read that there is a trial( I want to say at Stanford but I can't remember) where they are injecting stem cells into the ears of deaf children. I'm sure someone else could chime in with more information.

      I'm moderately optimistic about various different treatment options which are in different parts of the clinical pipeline, and I'm not even talking about drug stuff; in the mean time, all we can do is make the best of the time we've got and "try not to dwell on it"...

      I sort of let this BS run my life for a while; realized it wasn't getting any better, have basically taken control over my destiny again. The fact that I still post here probably means I've not completely moved on by any means, but I'll get there ;) You can too!

      I am trying to get to that point. Where I am tired of the negative thoughts.
      It has not happened yet.
      In the meantime I donate monthly to different research and hope this will speed things up. We need a lot of "drops in the ocean".;)

      Oh, I still think about this stuff more than I'd like to (which is to say, at all). Just not letting it steer my life decisions or actions anymore, beyond the basic truth of "carry earplugs and don't go to EDM shows, duh".

      There is.

      Go to a nutritionist that is savy in the ketogenic diet.

      Follow the diet for 6 months.

      Get into a healthy weight, train frequently during these 6 months.

      Try to incorporate the health toolsvi posted.

      Your T will improve.

      Is there any scientific study that shows that T improves with a ketogenic diet?
      I couldn't find any...

      There is not. However, maintaining a healthy weight, controling insulin spikes, lowering blood pressure and cholesterol (which Keto can do) may have a positive outcome on your T. All of us are different, results may vary. Even if it doesn't improve your T, it will positive affect you and thus have an indirect positive affect on your T.

      Keto is not for everyone. I am on and off it all the time. It is difficult but I do feel better when I am on it. My T stays about the same however

      First time I read about Keto diet, I already did a little research and looks great for overall health. This is why I like TT, you always find great info from great people.

      I will try it right away,
      Regards,
      Johnny.

      Oh I don't doubt there are positive effects of a keto diet, but what you are saying is far from the very confident "Your T will improve" statement.
      I don't have a weight problem, blood pressure problems, or cholesterol problems, and I have a very healthy and tasty diet (I cook every meal from fresh ingredients, many of which come from my garden actually), so I'm not sure whether there is a good ROI in this diet for me, hence my question.

      I wish there was scientific backing for it, because that would mean another tool in my toolbox. Sadly, as you said, there doesn't seem to be.
