Once we have enough information to create an accurate diagnosis, we meet with you to create a treatment plan that meets your medical needs, lifestyle and treatment preferences.
Your Low T treatment plan may include one or more of the following options:
Treatment of Underlying Conditions
If we have discovered an underlying cause for the hormonal shift (other than aging), we will create a plan to first treat that condition. The plan will include continued monitoring to ensure the hormonal changes and/symptoms begin to resolve.
We may recommend simple diet and exercise plans to help lessen symptoms.
Medications, such as antidepressants, may be helpful in reducing the effect of symptoms.
Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT)
TRT is used to return the levels of testosterone to normal (<300 ng/dL) in order to improve symptoms. As with all medications, there are some risks associated with this therapy. We will carefully explain all advantages and disadvantages associated with TRT before deciding on the best option. Testosterone Replacement Therapy is available as:
Injections (every 2-3 weeks)
Pellets (inserted under the skin every 3-6 months)
Together, you and your urologist will determine what treatment best meets your health needs.
