Low Testosterone (Low T) | Evaluation and Treatment Plan …

Low Testosterone Evaluation

At Armor Mens Health, we see patients with low testosterone levels at all ages and for a number of different reasons. In addition to conducting blood tests for absolute testosterone levels, we will also measure a more sensitive form of testosterone called the free-testosterone level. There is no known normal range that applies to all men and some men benefit from treatment even after being told that their levels were normal.

Your initial evaluation will also include looking for other problems whose symptoms can mimic those of low testosterone. In addition, a physical exam will look for evidence of testicular or prostate disease that could impact treatment.

Treatment for low testosterone can take several forms that all require close follow-up and should begin with a thorough understanding of possible risks and side effects.

No oral FDA approved testosterone replacement pill is available in the United States.

Topical gels are a common and popular choice for testosterone replacement. Injection therapy can be a minimally invasive way for testosterone supplementation and can be administered in our office or by self-injection.

In fact, weekly self-injection of testosterone can relieve patients of widely varying peak and through levels of testosterone and will be allowed when appropriate for properly qualified patients.

Some patients may be eligible for implantation of subcutaneous testosterone pellets that only need to be replaced every 6 months, making supplementation nearly worry free.
