Men with low testosterone (hypogonadism, low T) present with symptoms of fatigue, muscle wasting, low energy and libido, weight gain, depression. Although these symptoms are inter-related, if your testosterone is low, there often is a place for testosterone replacement. Replacement options include daily application of gels and lotions. Another option is injection of testosterone every other week. There are some advantages and disadvantages to these options. A relatively new option of delivering testosterone is the implantation of pellets (Testopel) under the skin. The testosterone is released slowly over 4-6 months. This office procedure is easy and the injection site heals quickly. There are many advantages to this treatment choice.
