Lack of reliable studies. Assuming that low test levels is a normal occurrance with aging. Funny that old bitches can get estrogen trt.
Most endochrinologists here (Portugal), face male hormones like opening a pandora box.
If a doctor prescribe me testosterone (at 42yo), just because i have low levels, he risks losing his medical practice, if i get prostate issues or a heart attack.


What a difference with US...
But everything in US is also commercial.

IMO and experience, 200mg/week put my levels just past "high-normal" around 1000 and the Clinic wanted them to be 600-800 tops.  So they cut my dosage back just a bit.  This was a year ago when I was still at the male clinic, but for financial reasons, I'm doing it on my own now.

Doesn't TRT doses on the "high side" makes your blood thicker? To dangerous levels?

So I researched and it seems 200mg a week is upper standard dose.

But what are the acceptable doses? I feel that if he tries offerin under 100mg I will just turn it down.

What should I accept? Is 100 okay or must I demand 200mg?

Your blood work will dictate where you need to be at optimnally..... NOT the TRT dose. Medical TRT doses range from 100mg/wk to 400mg/wk believe it or not.

So, get your doc to agree that you need to be at say 900 total test. Start at 100mg, get bloods done in 4 weeks, and adjust from there... thats how it works.

Hormonized blood cannot be used in medical care.

Your focus on dosage is not the most ideal way to approach this topic. 

"TRT" is testosterone REPLACEMENT therapy and implies that the patient has endogenous test levels that are below the normal range.  In a later post you stated that you are in your thirties, and don't indicate that you have had blood work that confirms a hypogonadal state.  If your interest is in bumping up your test level to a supraphysiologic range well, then, that's called a cycle.  If your test levels are presently within the normal range and you are not interested in looking like a bodybuilder (which you later state), then you would do yourself a disservice by going on a low dose of test (100-200mg, for example) because it will indeed shut off your own endogenous test production to keep you in a range you were achieving naturally anyway.

 My prescribed TRT is....

 100mg of Cyp every 5 days for 20 weeks.

 During that time I donate blood every few weeks.
 Keep the diet clean.
 Up the healthy fats. Lower the carbs. Avoid bread.
 Incorporate 20-30 min of post workout cardio.  Train hard.

 Caber at 0.5mg every 10 days.
 200mg of DIM daily.
 Little to no booze.
 Avoid anything and everything containing soy including protein powder.
 Very little dairy if any.

 Still making gains. Still feel good.

 Then I come OFF for 10 weeks. 
 I run Arimistane at 50mg for 4 weeks.
 Lighten up on the training. More of a volume style pump approach.
 A little more loose on the diet. Treat myself a little.
 Train every other day.
 I feel fine.  Plenty of time to heal from the injections and it lets my body sort of
 remember how to re-wire itself all over again.
 No donating blood during this time.

Pretty hard to get TRT (legally) down under here in Australia, but I know an endocrinologist who has been known to prescribe 200mg of testosterone cypionate to guys who fall within the low range (not necessarily the low enough to be government subsidised range).

200mg's is a generous trt script.  You can use half of that amount most of the year, yet keep refilling it on time.  You'll have more than enough then to run a really good blast/cycle once per year all with legit pharm grade cyp.

Regarding donating blood in order to fix it's thickning, one might get another medical issue that is excess iron in the body, hemochromatosis, due to the body need to compensate the constant loss of iron.
If not really needed, i would advise on not play with hormones at all.

Didn't the big mentor of TRT just died a week ago, at a very young age?

Donating blood every 8 weeks will not cause other medical issues.

Taking TRT doses when not having Low-T is a totally different story than taking TRT when having low-T. Low-T causes multiple issues that cascade through the body's hormonal system and can lead to greater issues. If you ACTUALLY do have Low-T, then you are doing yourself and your body a longer term favor by getting on TRT.

Using Matt (if thats who you are referring to) as an example for the risks of TRT is not only inaccurate, but rather cruel and just plain inappropriate. You don't know the entire circumstances surrounding his passing, although he was open about past AAS abuse and family history. Suggest you show more respect to a guy that was respected and very well liked across the board. His spirit doesnt deserve such snide and rude references.

TRT for those with low-T is safe when monitored by your doctor - plain, simple, true.
