Treatment options for low testosterone
Treatment of low testosterone is quite straightforward. Once the decision has been made to increase testosterone levels, low testosterone can be replaced by using one of a number of treatment options. All of these treatment options require a doctor’s prescription. An ideal preparation of testosterone will bring testosterone levels back into the normal range to reverse the symptoms of low testosterone. It will also be safe and offer a convenient dosing schedule and means of administration, at a reasonable cost. Several months of treatment may be required before changes are apparent. The general recommendations are to raise the blood testosterone level only into the middle of the normal physiological range. As testosterone replacement therapy is long term, it is important that it is convenient, safe and effective.
