Dear 7golgotha,

I am sorry to know about your symptoms,

Increasing testosterone through exercise is one of the best ways to naturally increase levels of this hormone,so that will help,but do remember,too much exercise may lower testosterone levels.So answer to your question is yes,you may be able to increase testosterone naturaly.I will advise that you ask your physcian to do serum TSH,complete metabolic panel as lmpaired thyroid levels and impaired electrolyte level may be the cause of your feeling down,as you described.
As you did have symptoms being on androgel,so I will advise that you avoid its usage.

Thanks

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
