If you think you might have low testosterone, you’re probably interested in learning more about your treatment options. Low T can affect your day to day life in many ways, but there are also straightforward ways to receive treatment!
Symptoms of Low T
While Erectile Dysfunction is one of the most talked about symptoms of low testosterone, it’s one of many possible symptoms. In a previous post, we outlined many of the most common symptoms of low T, as well as some of the less common ones. Low testosterone can be difficult to diagnose in some cases because many of the symptoms (like fatigue and muscle weakness) are symptoms of many illnesses, as well as a possible normal sign of aging). Especially if you have multiple symptoms of low testosterone, you should consider reaching out to your Provider.
Getting a Diagnosis of Low Testosterone
While the process of getting a diagnosis is pretty straightforward, many doctors prefer to treat the symptoms individually. However, if you do have low testosterone, hormone replacement therapy may help all your symptoms at once, so it’s worth pursuing a diagnosis.
Your primary care Provider can do the necessary tests, but many patients prefer to see a specialist. You can book an appointment with us to learn more.
How to Get Treatment for Low Testosterone
The primary medical treatment for low T is Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) to provide your body with additional testosterone. There are multiple types of testosterone treatments, including injections, oral medication, a gel rubbed into the skin, and pellets. There are benefits to different options, and you should talk to your prescribing Provider about which option you should try first.
Patients experiencing low testosterone generally feel the results of treatment relatively quickly, with noticeable results in as few as two weeks! If you think you might be experiencing low testosterone, you should consider getting tested.
