I have been with various clinics and endo's over the last ten years or so. The clinics, with the exception of one, all required an AI to be part of the protocol. I believe this is for a few different reasons:

1. It makes them more money.
2. Some of these places script more than most would need for true TRT. For instance, the first place I was with scripted 400mg/week lol.
3. Many of the general public are simply fat and probably high aromatizers.
4. Lazy cookie-cutter approach to their protocols.

The only local endo I ever worked with said they simply are not needed. He did not even test estrogen. He also scripted 200mg once every three weeks. I fired him when he wanted me to spend hours at the hospital getting a glucose tolerance test for diabetes that he feared I was developing due to mildly elevated IGF-1. Let's just say it was not diabetes causing the elevation lol.
