Treatment Options

If you are diabetic, it's a good idea to be tested for your testosterone level even if you're not experiencing any symptoms. If your testosterone levels are too low, there are several treatment options. First try non-medical options:

  • Increase your exercise.

  • Decrease or eliminate use of alcohol.

  • Try to eliminate stress in your life.

  • Eat a healthy diet, limiting fat intake.

Under the care of a physician, endocrinologist or urologist, you can undergo testosterone therapy, the most popular of which is a testosterone gel applied daily to the skin. Other forms include skin patches, intramuscular injections and implantable pellets.
