One of the main reasons we have doctors with a specialist interest in Men’s Health is because if you can find out why your testosterone is low, you may be able to improve this by changing a medication, getting a different treatment, or altering your lifestyle. If you are really lucky, it may mean you do not need TRT at all.
Going straight to TRT without looking at why your testosterone is low, is a bit like stitching up a wound without knowing why you were bleeding in the first place.
A bit like HRT for menopause in women, testosterone replacement therapy for men can be life changing. It can make you feel better both mentally and physically and reduce the risks of various medical conditions. But it is still a medicine, and requires blood monitoring, review with a doctor, and you may end up on treatment for many years.
Therefore, when considering clinics or treatment options, I would always ask the doctor “ I have done a blood test and I have low testosterone, can you help me work out why it is low, and what we can do together to put it right?”.
