You can't base the problem from one test.
sorry it took so long to respond but I know of a 24yo that was put on but only after a few more tests. The Endocrinologist found out his was a "true" problem. Most "doc's" won't because they have no clue about this issue or how to properly handle the issue. If you have this type of issue then by all means go to a specialist, if not, going to a family practice guy is no better than asking a juiced up guy in the gym what to do(more wrong answers).

Do not be fooled by all of the so called adverse effects, those are from abusers and not users. If you are low T, the cardiovascular harm done from low T definitely out weigh some possible prostate issue. Everyone in the field knows that if you live long enough you will develop prostate cancer. The effects on the cardiovascular system will lead to death, stroke, heart attack and a lot of other nasty issue's. Just look at the numbers of people having the side effects and hospital visits and they don't add up to true risk. The down side of Low T is too great of a risk to not take it seriously.

Don't use it unless you truly have Low T but if you do, please go to someone who's job it is to understand your problem. You wouldn't go to a dentist for an ingrown toe nail so why do the same for this issue.

just a disclaimer, I have worked in the cardiovascular field for over 22 years as well as oncology(specialty was men's health) and seen first hand the ignorance in our healthcare on this subject. I suggest all men at 40yo go and see their endo and take control of your life if this is an issue.
