Low Testosterone Treatments

Nonprescription Treatments for Low Testosterone

Listen to the radio or pick up just about any magazine directed toward male readers, and you will likely see an advertisement for at least one supplement or herbal product aimed at supporting healthy testosterone levels in men. It's important to note that these ads cannot directly say that the products treat low testosterone; this is not allowed, as they are not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
 
In general, these products probably fall within one of the following categories:
 
  • Products that will not actually do anything to increase testosterone levels and are therefore ineffective
  • Products that might increase testosterone levels and therefore could be potentially unsafe if used in an unmonitored fashion.
 
Increasing testosterone levels too much can cause a variety of undesired side effects that could be dangerous. Low testosterone treatment should be done only with careful medical supervision involving testing of levels before and during treatment.
 

Final Thoughts

There are many different testosterone replacement products available today to fit a wide range of needs, preferences, and budgets. Keep in mind that whatever the product, testosterone replacement should be done only under the careful guidance of your healthcare provider, and only after the diagnosis has been confirmed with laboratory tests. Low testosterone treatments, if used inappropriately, can be harmful.
