After experiencing many of the symptoms of low testosterone

Customer Question

Hi there, after experiencing many of the symptoms of low testosterone levels (no sex drive, depression, fatigue, reduced muscle mass etc) I completed a hormone test. I have the results and would like to seek professional help moving forward
Assistant: Is this your first time reaching out for information about this? In general, how would you describe your overall health?
Customer: Yes this is the first time reaching out about this. I would say I live a healthy lifestyle but my overall health is not in a good way
Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I have recurring staph infections/cellulitis which has seemed to get worse and more frequent over many courses of antibiotics. Also, my tolerance for many foods and drinks has rapidly decreased. I don’t know if this is helpful but I would love to seek food sensitivity help too

I’m 26 (27 next week). The other condition I have is recurring staph infections around nose and rear. I have been treated with antibiotics for this many times, I am no longer taking antibiotics as I don’t approve on the negative effects on the good bacteria I need. This problem has got significantly worse over time and I’m curious whether there is a link with testosterone being low.

I forgot to mention. Thanks for your response Dr Rick. I can’t do a Skype right now but will be able to chat online for the next couple of hours.

Thank you for that data.

The best thing for you to do is consult with an endocrinologist. Your GP can set this up for you.

Does this make sense to you?

It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.
