Brief Answer:
The question is not clear.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Your question is not very clear.
Anyway i would suggest to take injections of testosteron 250 mg once monthly or you may take injections of 1000 mg once in three months and check testosterone level prior to any injection.
You may talk to your treating physician for treatment with gel or patches if they are available in your country.
Wish you good health.
Kind regards,
Dr.Mirjeta

Brief Answer:
Please specify in much details the medical history.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
From the attached results i can see that the latest one is of 1 August 2016 and is below the normal ranges, it means that you should correct it.
Regarding further history i have understood until now that you have been treated for two months with injections twice a month and since last 4 months you do not take the treatment.
Having into consideration the level of August, it still persists low, that is why i recommended you to restart the treatment.
For more detailed information please specify in much details the medical history.
Kind Regards,
Dr.Mirjeta

Answered by Dr. Mirjeta Guni 5 hours later
Brief Answer:
The normal range at your age is >270 ng/dl.

Detailed Answer:
The normal ranges are 270-1070 ng/dl. After the age of thirties the testosterone begins do decrase by 1% in a year due to ageing, anyway at 45 you should maintain it >270 ng/ dl in order to improve both the symptoms of low testosterone level and prevent the long term effects that it causes.
I think you have discussed with your treating physician about the benefits of testosterone replacement therapy and have taken a decision before you started the treatment.
It will be a pleasure to answer further questions in the future.
