I’ve been using Androgel for my hypogonadism for over 6 years.

It’s not that you “feel” your T value is low; it IS low!

I’m not an MD; so I don’t give advice; but my andrologist has said, “I don’t like to see anyone lower than 300.”

So you might have a problem.

Why not set up an appointment with an endocrinologist or andrologist-urologist?
