There are several tests that can be used to determine testosterone levels including blood tests and saliva tests, and they are easy to administer. Men should be sure to bring up the fact that they may have low testosterone to their health care practitioner, otherwise, it can be easily overlooked because andropause is simply not given the same attention as other health problems that men have, in spite of the potential seriousness of its symptoms. The treatments that can be created at a compounding pharmacy can adequately treat andropause and are much more effective than treatments available elsewhere.
