LOW TESTOSTERONE TREATMENT

CHECK TESTOSTERONE LEVELS

During your ED Evaluation session, our team will provide you with a pre-prepared testing kit. Testosterone levels vary throughout the day, so it is important to collect a patient sample within 30 minutes of waking. Patients take the pre-paid kit home with them, simply provide a saliva sample in the morning, and drop if off either at our office or at any UPS drop off location. Our office will receive the results in a few days and will review the results with you during your next appointment.

LOW TESTOSTERONE

If the results of the testosterone testing reveal that you have low hormone levels, our physicians will prescribe you with a cream or injectable pellets to increase your testosterone levels. It is rare that low testosterone is the sole cause of ED, however it can be affecting you in many ways such as decreased libido, stamina, and energy.

 What is the normal range of testosterone?
Levels vary per individual, but generally 300 ng/dL and 1000 ng/dL are considered to be in the normal range for a healthy adult male.
 What does Testosterone do in the body?
Testosterone is responsible for many bodily functions, including the development of muscle mass and strength, distribution of hair in men, deepening voice, fat distribution, and growth and maturation of male sex organs.
 How did I get Low testosterone?
If your body isn’t producing enough testosterone, it could be that you were born with the condition or it may have developed later in life. It could be caused by disrupted regulation of the production of testosterone in the pituitary gland, hormone imbalance (such as diabetes, thyroid or liver disorders), injury or trauma to the testes, medication side effects or other causes. It’s common for testosterone levels to decrease as you age, however a dramatic drop can cause issues.
 Do I have to keep my saliva sample refrigerated?
No, the test kit that we provide you does not need to be refrigerated and neither does the saliva vial sample. It will be safe for multiple days of travel to the testing facility without negatively affecting the test results.
 If I don’t like testosterone cream, is there another option?
Yes, although most likely the first recommendation is to utilize testosterone cream, injectable pellets may also be available to you. These pellets are implanted by one of our physicians under the skin, typically in the buttock or hip area, and slowly release testosterone over time.
 Do I need a PSA test?
Yes, if our physicians prescribe you with testosterone cream, you must have blood work done and the results sent to our office to check your PSA levels. Our physicians will not renew your initial prescription without your PSA test completed. After you begin the hormone replacement therapy, your PSA levels will regularly need to be checked, as well as your testosterone hormone levels.
