Men experiencing low testosterone levels (androgen deficiency and hypogonadism) experience a host of symptoms and physician issues including low libido, erectile dysfunction, irritability, fatigue. There are many different ways to assess the need for testosterone therapy and it comes down to a trained medical expert working with an individual to understand how they are feeling, discussing their symptoms, understanding their baselines , lifestyle and medical history and using blood testing to evaluate all of the appropriate hormone levels depending on the individuals symptoms. This helps to paint a complete picture for the provider of all of the important aspects that may be involved in understanding how to treat that individual.
