Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Testosterone Replacement Therapy is available if you suffer from
low testosterone.  Initial evaluation by Dr. Silberman at New Jersey
Sports Medicine includes an intake history, a physical examination,
complete panel of blood work with two separate readings of
testosterone levels, and counseling.  

Dr. Silberman has diagnosed patients who thought they had low
testosterone with other ailments such as hemochromatosis (iron
overload), diabetes, and elevated estrogen, in addition to
prolactinomas (microadenomaa of the pituitary gland).

Testosterone can be prescribed and delivered from gel or injection.  
Testosterone cypionate injected in weekly is the preferred method as
it delivers a more stable dosing.

The usual testosterone replacement regimen is Testosterone
Cypionate 200mg/ml, 1/2 ml to 1ml injected intramuscularly or
subcutaneously weekly, usually in divided doses to limit the peaks
and valleys of dosing.  Anastrozole (Arimidex) 1mg pill orally per
week to treat elevated estrogen or estradiol levels, which can occur
with testosterone replacement therapy.  And for some patients, HCG
or chorionic gonadotropin 1000 IU in 2 or 3 divided doses weekly
injected subcutaneously in to your stomach fat.

For most patients suffering from low testosterone, testosterone
replacement therapy is covered by your  insurance, provided you
have two documented morning lab tests with low readings of
testosterone.  The patient then can obtain testosterone cypionate
through your prescription plan and self administer testosterone at
home with periodic office visits and blood level monitoring every
three months.  Some patients will require periodic phlebotomy at the
hospital and monitoring for elevation of hemoglobin and hematocrit,
which can occur with testosterone replacement therapy.
