The first and most important step is understanding your symptoms and getting your numbers from a simple blood test.
Your test results, generally received within 24 hours, will indicate whether your testosterone levels are low.
If testosterone level is low, an additional comprehensive evaluation is conducted to identify cause and determine the best treatment option.
Treatment options may consist of testosterone injections, or creams, or medications to boost natural testosterone production. Results may also identify disfunction in other areas such as depression, sleep apnea or a thyroid condition, just to name a few.
Testosterone is a hormone made by the body and is responsible for the normal growth and development of the male sex organs and for maintenance of other sexual characteristics. In men, testosterone is produced in the testes, the reproductive glands that also produce sperm. The amount of testosterone produced by the testes is regulated by the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland.
