Treat your poor energy, erection problems, fatigue and low sexual desire
Low T is not something that should be treated at a drive-in center, or “hormone specialists” where the physician as taken a weekend course. You should be seen seen or interviewed — by a physician with a specialty in sexual medicine and hormone replacement— a physician that will take the time to get to the root cause of your testosterone deficiency while also coming up with a plan that works with your lifestyle and most importantly keeps you safe from side effects.
Many men suffer for years with low testosterone because their general doctors dismiss symptoms of low T as simply something that happens as you age. “Normal” testosterone can vary greatly from person to person, and while lab test can be instructive, the symptoms reported by the patient are just as important to making the diagnosis and devising the appropriate treatment plan.
Diagnosing low testosterone can be complex, and a simple reading of testosterone levels in your general practitioner’s office is only a small part of the story. Finding a physician that knows how to properly diagnose and manage low testosterone safely and effectively is paramount.
