Low Testosterone in Men

Treating Low Testosterone

Low testosterone in men is usually treated with replacement therapy (see Low Testosterone Treatments for more information). The one exception is for men who have low testosterone, a low sperm count, and a desire to improve fertility, since testosterone medications do not increase sperm count.
 
Treatment should be given only after the diagnosis is confirmed with laboratory blood tests to measure testosterone levels; the condition should not be diagnosed based on symptoms alone (see Diagnosing Low Testosterone for more information).
 

Final Thoughts

Low testosterone is not just a part of aging. Although testosterone levels do decline slightly with age, levels that are abnormally low for your age usually indicate a problem. The treatment is simple, although sometimes expensive, depending on the particular product. If you are a man concerned about the possibility of low testosterone, do not hesitate to bring up the subject with your healthcare provider.
