The bottom line is there is a lot of confusion about what the "right" test will really do for you. Read up on how testosterone is supposed to be measured. There are many good articles out there to help you make that determination. If you are wondering how to get the right testosterone, you should consult your healthcare provider.
Testosterone in Testosterone Replacement Therapy I'm going to get the big question out of the way first: Do you really need testosterone replacement therapy to "get more" testosterone? No. I don't mean to sound like I'm saying you need testosterone for a one-time performance boost. But you absolutely do need to use a low-dose testosterone product as part of the treatment for hypogonadism or low testosterone, or low T without low T. What I mean is that you need the product to improve your physical performance. When you have a condition such as low T, this condition can impair your ability to carry out normal daily activities, which in turn can lead to increased health risks and problems, such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Testosterone replacement therapy is not a cure for low T, but it can help with the condition, and is usually very safe for those with normal testosterone levels.
