Decreasing levels of testosterone may be attributed to aging, but may be caused by another, more serious condition such as diabetes. Therefore, it is vital to take hormonal change symptoms seriously.
Your doctor may use one or more of the following tests to determine the cause and extent of the hormonal imbalance.
Physical Exam: A physician will perform a physical exam to discover any abnormalities that may indicate an underlying condition.
Evaluation of Symptoms: The team asks the patient a series of questions to help better understand symptoms and the patient’s medical history. This helps us determine if there are any underlying causes of the symptoms.
Blood or Urine Tests: Taking a small sample of blood or urine, the team tests the sample for underlying conditions that may be causing the hormonal changes.
