So, how does one ensure that testosterone levels remain in balance? Some doctors suggest that monitoring testosterone levels every five years, starting at age 35, is a reasonable strategy to follow. If the testosterone level falls too low or if the individual has the signs and symptoms of low testosterone levels described above, testosterone therapy can be considered. However, once testosterone therapy is initiated, testosterone levels should be closely monitored to make sure that the testosterone level does not become too high, as this may cause stress on the individual, and high testosterone levels may result in some of the negative problems (described previously) seen.
As this process is very simple there is an important fact to be aware of; there is no cure for low testosterone levels, we can only treat the symptoms, we cannot reverse it permanently. Once your levels become naturally low they will remain that way for the rest of your life unless you undergo therapy and in most cases without therapy they will only continue to decline, increasing the symptoms overall effects. However, therapy is so simple and pain free that although it must be continuous you will find it no more bothersome than pouring yourself a bowl of cereal. If you do begin therapy and abruptly stop you should be aware, your levels will fall fast and dramatically.
