Northern Nevada Resources and a Question on Starting T Later in Life
Anyway, I live in northern Nevada and medical professionals who are willing and able to work respectfully with trans people are very, very hard to find. In fact, the ones I've found haven't even known about each other. I've been very lucky to find some absolutely amazing health care providers, and I wanted to share the information I have in case there are others here in the same geographical area as me. These are the professionals I've found:
Dr. Stephen Elliot (Family Physician)
Carson Medical Group
Carson City, NV
Dr. Carol Cheney (Endocrinologist)
Carson Tahoe Physicians Clinic
Carson City, NV
Mary Minten, LMFT, LCADC, DAACS (Therapist)
Family Counseling Service
I hope that's helpful for someone - and, if you are in northern Nevada, drop me a line. It would be nice to meet a few folks that are local. :)
Now, a question. I'm much older than most guys who start T, from what I can see. Should I expect anything different than the general guidelines in regards to what changes I can expect and when? I know a lot of it depends on personal metabolism, I'm just wondering if there are any categorical differences based on age. I read on one site, specific to MtF transition, that the body's ability to respond to hormones decreases to 25% by age 30 - but I don't know if that applies to testosterone or only to estrogen/progesterone.
Thanks, everyone. And mods, if there are any issues with the contents (or tags) of my post, let me know and I'll happily make any necessary changes.
