So you may have symptoms of low testosterone. A blood test should be done to confirm the diagnosis. Now what is the best method of testosterone replacement?
Taking oral testosterone can be harmful to the liver, therefore safe methods include a gel, cream or patch, injections or pellets. The gels, creams and patches tend to be greasy and messy and man men don’t absorb enough to make it worthwhile. Injections work well but need to be given weekly, which can be cumbersome.
Pellets are tiny devices placed under the skin that slowly dissolve and keep testosterone at good levels for 3 months. It takes a few minutes to do with minimal discomfort. The name of the pellet recommended is called testopel.
