How do you diagnose Low T?
Readings of a man’s total testosterone can be tricky to accurately ascertain. Because of this, Obsidian Men’s Health uses advanced technologies, such as free testosterone assessment and bioavailable testosterone calculations, to ensure a precise diagnosis. All clients also receive our customary targeted history and physical examination. If we need further information for a precise diagnosis, we’ll get it, for example by determining your estradiol levels, which helps ensure a proper balance of testosterone and estrogen in a man’s body — a possible root cause frequently overlooked by the general medical community.
What is the treatment for Low Testosterone?
Obsidian’s treatments for Low T — custom-designed to maximize results for each client — include topical therapies such as patches, creams and gels. Injectable testosterone can also be a highly effective replacement therapy; we’ll craft a dosage regimen that will help you achieve peak sexual and athletic performance at medically appropriate levels of testosterone.
