After review of the results of the initial blood tests, if the doctor decides that it’s safe and appropriate to start testosterone replacement therapy, a prescription for one month’s testosterone replacement therapy will be authorised. A further blood test will be needed after three weeks to see how you are responding to treatment. All being well, a further five months of treatment will be authorised before another blood test is needed to check your testosterone levels , a year after treatment is initiated, and each year after that, further blood tests will then be needed to ensure that the ideal level of testosterone in your body is maintained and that your continued use of testosterone replacement therapy remains safe. We will be checking for indications of prostate or blood problems that can occur.
As with any disease, we want to tell you that Low T isn't "normal" but the process of aging and a decline in testosterone is normal. The condition of "low t" has become "normal" because people associate the decline in energy and drive for all aspects of life with aging. While it may be true that your levels decline, it's not always because it's "normal" it could be related to the type of work you do, your diet, and your exercise routine. Fortunately, low testosterone is treatable through a process called testosterone replacement therapy. Why would you want to continue living each day with no drive for life? Wouldn't it be great if you could have the knowledge and wisdom of your 40's and 50's but the energy levels of your 20's and 30's?
