I am 31 turning 32 in a few months I was just diagnosed with low testosterone. my blood work was tested for several things including thyroid all was normal but my testosterone level was 270. I know normal is from 200 to 1000 mine is very low.
I am being prescribed androgel 1% in pump form. My main question is one I have my concerns not with taking the medication but weather or not this is going to be enough to correct the issue.
I have looked at the medication and they have 2 doses the 1% and a higher one since my levels are so low wouldnt the higher dose be right for me?
Is this something I would be on for the rest of my life? Or will this boost my ability to naturally produce testosterone?
Last Question is I have small children 2 boys and 2 girls i have heard that the gel could potentially get on them and cause adverse affects. So is there a better option for me?
I have asked my Dr. all of these questions but he didnt really answer them as well as i would have liked and has told me that in one months he wants to check my levels again after i start the medication. So I assume that he will be checking to see if the medication is working.
I am not a expert so dont take what I say as being the only option to his issue and you should have him speak to a doctor.
Im my case its much like his I was tested for low testosterone (Im 31) and that is what I am being told is the issue also causing other issues. I read another tip on here from a Doctor that said to see a Urologist as there could be other causes. But the bottom line is he should talk to a doctor about this. Thats what I finally broke down and had to do myself.View Thread
I did have one other question and that is I also have severe mood swings I was told that it could be due to the low T. I wanted to know if anyone else had this issue and was it corrected with the medication to boost your testosterone?
(A little info about me) I work out regularly plus work hard at work in sun most of the time. I am active with my kids but the last several weeks Ive not been working out and not as active due to being extremely tired.View Thread
