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.
To Elizabeth M., San Diego CA concerning low testosterone treatment side effects: Our protocols reduce the possibility of side effects with low testosterone treatment. When someone goes to the family doctor or primary care physician to get treatment for the signs of low testosterone, that doctor may not know about the other medications and treatments necessary to balance hormone levels and encourage the body to begin to produce its own testosterone and completely restore a wonderful state of health and well-being. We want your husband to have all the energy he needs and feel completely healthy and young again.
Dr. William Barkley
