I saw the doctor today and he gave me a form to go get blood work for my testosterone levels to see if I am a candidate for testosterone therapy . I've read the "your doctor, your pusher" article referenced at the end of this post, but I am not a drinker. If I do the other things listed in the article is that sufficient ... without the alcohol part? My doctor also told me that it is best to go in before 9am as my testosterone levels are highest in the morning. Logically this would mean that I should stay up all night the night before as indicated in the article or go in the evening? Will taking Finasteride help or hurt lowering my testosterone levels?
What is the standard process from first visit to receiving the therapy?
1.) General practitioner visit
2.) Blood test
3.) General practitioner evaluation of blood test
4.) (If needed) Endo or Urologist visit for test result analysis and prostate exam
5.) (If needed) Prescription is given and treatment begins.
Thanks for reading
