Default Low t treatment

Anyone on any testosterone treatment? My man parts havenít been working well and went to see an endocrinologist and urologist. My last am draw was 147. Iím 38. The urologist said he would put me on a gel just to get two more tests done because the time stamp didnít match. Both times said the blood draw was midnight.

What can I expect?

hey boogiesmash,
I've thought about getting my T checked. I have very low sex drive and blame the meds I take. I'm going to try and taper down some of the meds to see if that helps. My fear is my Anxiety creeps back up. I think I'd prefer the low sex drive to the anxiety.

Are you familiar with the YouTube channel Bignoknow? Noah (whose channel this is) is a young man who has struggled with low T as well as depression & anxiety. He uploads videos onto his YouTube channel talking about his struggles. One advantage Noah has is that his dad is a physician. You might find Noah's videos to be of interest. Here's a link to Noah's YouTube channel:

Skeez
Interesting YouTube info from Noah.
My take a way is that I need to add muscle mass to increase T. I'm not overweight but could use to lose 5-10 lbs and add that much in muscle. More reasons to get off my *** and workout more. Exercise has been the best Medication for me but one I use the least. I admit that I'm lazy.

Late to the party as always. I thought I was one of the few that having this issue. Never been real interested in sex, my poor wife, so never really thought much about this. A doctor out of curiosity asked for the test last time I did labs and the results baffle him. Total not free was at 14.....other than I could lose some weight there is nothing that he can find that would cause it. Really confused him because I have 3 kids how nature meant us to have them. Been taking t shots for last 6 month and will be asking for a recheck next time I go in.
