Customer Question

Hello,
I am 65 year old male, body weight 222 lbs, 6'2", white, with Type 1 diabetes 51 years. Last H1Ac 7.2. Otherwise, never smoked, no cardio or other issues. My last cholesterol was LDL, Direct, 138 mg/dL
My endocrinologist doc Rx 200 mg Testosterone Enanthate intramucularly every 2 weeks. My last blood test revealed a T-level of 14.1 ng/ml.
I am distressed. Seems like a normal range should be closer to 500 ng/ml. What would you recommend?

In general, the normal range in males is about 270 to 1070 ng/dL with an average level of 679 ng/dL.

Your levels are low , so it would be good to get replacement therapy please .
