What kind of doctor do I see about testosterone replacement therapy
I show all the classic signs of hypogonadism.My primary care did a basic panel and told me I was in the middle of range low 300's ng/? but didn't test for free testosterone.
After doing much research,I find that my doctor actually lied to me when he said I waas middle range...in fact I am at the low end of range.Research shows that even men in their 60's should be close to 600.
I am 50 and have suffered with this for several years,low libido,can not achieve full erection,nearly impossible to ejaculate and if I do almost no sensation of orgasm.I'm irratable often,low energy,more and more depressed and even more emotional ie: weeping like a lady during a sad or touching scene in a movie etc.
That is just not me..I mean I've always had compassion...BUT WEEPING?!! Too much!
Anyway my primary care is an internal medicine and he is adamant against hormone replacement therapy.I know I need it.
Much research show that it is beneficial more than it is a hazard and can improve cardio vascular health and cholesterol levels.I have problems with both also.
So can anyone tell me if I should see and endo,or urologist...a D.O. perhaps?
