Four years ago, and still in my mid thirties, I started to investigate the possibility that I suffer from low testosterone. I knew from looking online that the symptoms were a match to mine and was confident that testosterone was the issue. My GP agreed to blood tests and the results showed that I was low (11.1) but just above the threshold for treatment set by the NHS. My GP insisted that I was ‘fine’ and that “some people are just tuned differently”. I felt like I had no option but to put up with my symptoms.
Four years on (and feeling worse), I decided to get tested again, but this time by a specialist. After contacting the Preventative Health Doctors they conducted blood tests confirming that my levels were still low (now 8.1). Dr Robert Stevens listened, explained the costs (not anywhere near as expensive as I thought) and then proceeded to tailor a treatment plan for me. It was such a relief to talk to someone who understood the condition, the impact it has and how to treat it.
Four months into treatment and I am starting to feel the benefit. I know from personal experience that Low T can have a huge effect on your life, and I would recommend treatment from the the Preventative Health Dr’s to anyone.
