Brief Answer:
About low testosterone;

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for asking!

Low Testosterone level, often is medically treated to prevent future health problems.

Of course, before deciding to start testosterone replacement therapy ( testosterone injections, pills, patches etc ) and/ or testosterone boosting diet, the cause of low testosterone should be tried to find.

If no pathology is found, your doctor will recommend testosterone replacement therapy and/ or testosterone-boosting foods.

Two nutrients that are especially important in your diet are vitamin D and zinc.
Tuna fish, Low-fat milk, egg yolk, fortified cereals are rich in VitD meanwhile Oysters and shellfish are high sources of the mineral zinc, bean and beef meat contain both zinc and VitD.

Try to include them in your everyday diet but in limited quantities.

Hope the information will help. Feel free to ask further.

Kind regards,

Brief Answer:
Some blood tests to be done:

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back!
Before suggesting to take VItD supplements, a VitD level (checked in a blood test) would be needed. After that we decide rather to take supplements, the dose and for how long. glucose level and a simple urine test would be also of help to find the cause of frequent urination.
I would suggest to check testosterone level too as your testicular size are reduced.

Brief Answer:
About testosterone deficiency;

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back,

Well, we are only supposing you have testosterone deficiency as you didn't mention any symptoms of it (apart from testicular volume reduction). Of course, please confirm it at first then find the pathology that has caused it.

The cure depends on the pathology.

Best wishes,
Dr.Mirjeta
