I recently had a blood test done at my MD and was called with the results and was told I have a low testosterone level. I wasnt told how low. The nurse told me to make an appointment and I did so I will find out more next week. I'm 25 and was wondering what are the possible causes of low testosterone in someone my age? This way i have an idea of whats going on and what to expect when I go to my MD.View Thread
My doctor said that while my testosterone level is in range he feels it's low at 276 (range 241-800) for a 25yr old. The only symptom I have is fatigue. I asked him about the saliva test and he wasn't sure about it or how it would be different. I'm getting another blood test done before I make a decision on what to do. I'm also thinking of seeing an endocrinologist or urologist for opinions.
What else can be done to increase testosterone levels?View Thread
