Low testosterone

Looking for a doctor here in Owensboro who understands and knows how to treat low testosterone. I left my primary doc a few years ago because he couldn't find anything wrong. New doc says I had low T. Ended up going to an endocrinologist who put me on shots, but he was content with getting me barely into the normal range and calling it good. Went back to my other doc, same thing. A level of 300 for a guy in his early 30's is not normal, and I'm tired of trying to plead my case with doctors. All of the medical research I can find says that for someone my age, it should be at least double that to be "normal". Doctors are scared to death to increase dosage because it is a controlled substance, but I'm tired of feeling like this. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Please don't suggest going about it illegally--I'm not interested in that route. I just want to feel normal again.

Wish I could help seeing that I have the same problem and never could get my family doc to do anything. If you find one that could help out pass along the info. I'd say a larger city will be the best bet though.

Even if you move to a larger city, you still won't get it up. How's that going to help?

Well, at least they are treating mine, but they are satisfied with minimal being normal. I, on the other hand, am not. I notice most of the clinics that are up-to-date on information and "truth" are located in Louisville and/or Lexington, but they do not accept insurance and the monthly fees are ridiculous. They have a person by the balls, literally and figuratively. If I find a doctor who knows what the hell they are doing here in the 'boro, I'll be sure to update this post with info. Don't hold your breath on me finding one here though.

My husband is going through the exact same thing too, hes also in his mid 30s, and Drs here are content keeping him in the lowest normal range (for an 80 year old man) and hes wondering where to go, we would go as far as louisville, but I don't know if that would even help.. Are there some drs out there that have more of an idea of what to do?

Dr Randall King now has pellet hormone replacement therapy offered through his office. This is for men and women. Call his office and set up a consult with Karla. I just did today. He will request a hormone panel and multiple blood tests to determine exactly what you are missing or what you have too much of. These pellets will be specifically contoured to your needs. Dr King is all about getting you back to those freaky fun days when you couldn't keep your paws to yourself. A great sex life eases a tremendous number of stresses in your life! You can get that passion and fire back if you really want to!

The "Low T" Center in Nashville takes most insurance. They use the injections, not the pellets. Read up about those pellets, not much good is said about them. I had my tests done in Nashville a couple of weeks ago and got my results back in a couple of days. Will be going back next week for first injection, which is covered like a prescription by my insurance - already pre-approved. What made my trip there impressive is that they discussed the downfalls of the treatment for low testosterone as much as they did the benefits. Being informed makes better decisions. Most of the low-t treatment places do not accept insurance - and the treatment can be costly. To me anyway, this is a huge plus.

I complained to my Dr. and labs were done. My T-level was 99. My Dr immediately put me on monthly shots. When to Drug Store to pick it up and they only want to give you a months supply. When I went to pick up I told Pharmacist that my Rx was for 10 month supply. They only gave me 1 month. Found out that Drug store makes more money by giving it out 1 mth at a time. I was paying $30 a month. Went back next month and got a years dose and without running through my insurance I only paid $120 for yr script!!

You are so funny!! Every medication out there has side effects! So are you saying that because the low T meds have side effects that Doctors are afraid they might be sued!! LOL.... I had a knee replacement and the hardware is being recalled and causing problems for people. So I guess Dr.s are gonna stop doing surgeries because they are afraid of being sued due to recalls.. Hey Owensboro Native.... Maybe you don't need to speak about something you know nothing about! Do you take any type of medications?? Did you know that all medications have side effects. When you take a medication you are made aware of side effects at the Drs office and also all Pharmacist have to give side effects to each patient... The Low-T commercial is for Low-T spray and creams. But since you know so much go ahead and get an attorney and seek judgement against your family Dr.......LOL
