Testosterone and Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) has been the wild – wild west for a long time. Providers could not agree on treatment parameters for years. They debated: blood level of testosterone constituted low testosterone, symptoms that indicated patient was a candidate for testing or treatment ,and what treatment options for different situations.
DOCTORS LOOK TO GUIDELINES FOR EFFECTIVENESS AND SAFETY
When looking to treat their patients, physicians look to medically accepted standards and guidelines. Although most physicians male patients asked their doctors directly for low T treatment, many doctor were hesitant. There were no guidelines that physicians could point to as a reference on things such as:
Physicians found themselves at odds with their patients over low testosterone treatment. Men were suffering from symptoms that appeared to be low T and were asking their doctors for help. Doctors did not have clear guidelines to use for treatment of those patients so many times they refused. Patients many times hears that their symptoms where just “getting older” or “all in their head”. This frustrated, even angered many of the men. Patients Speak Out: “My Doctor WON”T Treat My Low T”
GUIDELINES PROVIDE REFERRAL PATHWAY FROM FAMILY DOCTORS TO LOW T INSITUTE
“Prior to the release of these guidelines, there just wasn’t enough information out there published that physicians could look to. Without one of the major medical societies coming out with standards, there was just too much risk to the patient.
“Now we see physicians referring to us directly for treatment for Low T. This is a win for all men who suffer from low testosterone. The Endocrine Society has given us a foundation to safely build our patients treatment on. From here forward, patients in St Louis can get help with their low testosterone safely, effectively, and covered by their medical insurance.” Kevin Meuret, founder of Low T St. Louis
