    What are “normal” levels of testosterone?

    In healthy men, testosterone levels between 350 ng/dL and 1000 ng/dL are referred to as “normal.” Normal physiology allows the brain and the testes to work together to keep testosterone in this range. The brain produces “signal” hormones that are responsible for stimulating testosterone production. These signals are periodically released, which in turn stimulates testosterone production. When levels of testosterone are in an acceptable range, the production of the signal hormones are slowed, which in turn allows the testosterone levels to decrease.

    How do you treat diabetes?

    To treat type 2 diabetes, we recommend lifestyle modifications in the areas of nutrition and exercise. Based on the severity of your diabetes, your Low T medical provider will determine a goal for managing your blood glucose levels to as close to the normal range as possible, to prevent long-term risks to your health and longevity. Treatment regimens may also include medication in addition to lifestyle changes. However, to the extent possible, we aim to prevent, reduce, or eliminate the amount and the number of medications you are taking to treat chronic conditions such as diabetes.

To the extent possible, we aim to prevent, reduce, or eliminate the amount and number of medications you are taking to treat chronic conditions such as high blood pressure.

    How do you treat allergies?

    Using the gold-standard procedure (pressure application), we test your sensitivity for approximately 80 allergens, including dust mites, insects, pet dander, grasses, pollen, mold, and some foods. We then prepare a small dose of the specific allergens you react to and inject that customized dosage, which enables your body to become more tolerant of the allergens. Allergy injections begin on a weekly basis and then reduce in frequency over time.
