Doctors, such as Dr. Christopher Senger (Medical Director at Virility, Inc.), who specialize in treating men who have low testosterone levels will first determine if there is an underlying medical cause such as Type 2 diabetes, obesity or severe sleep apnea. Successfully treating those conditions can sometimes improve testosterone levels.
If the the patient is a good candidate for testosterone replacement therapy, treatment can be offered in several different forms including topical gel applications, implanted pellets, or testosterone injections. Because testosterone replacement therapy does not stimulate the body’s ability to produce testosterone, the treatment must be ongoing to be effective. If the treatment stops, the low levels will return.
