I went to my urologist to get checked out for low t. Had all the symptoms. Doc ran tests and my blood work from quest came back at 278. The reference range shows 241-827 Ng/dl. No free test analysis done and my PSA looks fine. My urologist sounds very open minded. His website has a section on low t and his office is completely slaughtered with low t posters. So I think he is going to write a script but just in case I want to armed with info. 2 questions:
1. I read The Endocrine Society says any levels below 300 to be low T. Are these apples to apples with the quest numbers. So Can i quote this recommendation and not sound like an idiot.
2. Dosage? Im not quite clear on the dosage and the effect on levels. So if I have 278 and the doc wants me upto 800. Will he just give me 500 a month or a week? and wont that shut me down. So i guess my question is what should I ask for dosage wise. I want to do this right.
Thanks for your help.
