Will I be able to get treatment if I get tested?
If your levels of testosterone are too low (lower than 12nmol/L), a repeat test is recommended after 4 weeks. If the second test confirms that your testosterone levels are still low, you may need to be referred to a specialist by your GP to start treatment with testosterone replacement therapy. If you have seen a specialist and are already taking testosterone replacement therapy, and have been receiving treatment for a year, then you can place an order for a repeat prescription through our service.
If a test shows that your testosterone levels are in the normal range for your age, testosterone replacement therapy isn’t recommended and you will need to look into other possible causes of your symptoms.
Other possible causes of erectile dysfunction, low sex drive, fatigue, or weight gain can include mood disorders like anxiety and depression, or stress caused by a certain situation at home or work. In some cases your doctor may advise you to modify your lifestyle to improve your symptoms, including:
- drinking less alcohol
- quitting smoking
- exercising more regularly
- improving your diet
If you are already receiving testosterone treatment we can offer a convenient continuation service to order it online. If you haven’t been treated for low testosterone before, you’ll need to consult your GP first.
If your test shows you do not have high testosterone levels, you will be able to get testosterone therapy treatment regardless of whether it’s low or normal, provided your doctor thinks it’s right for you.
