Doctor Conversation Guide

With so much going on, it’s not always easy to remember all the questions you want to ask your doctor. That’s why we created a Doctor Conversation Guide with some questions about hypogonadism due to certain medical conditions and AndroGel 1.62%. Just download the guide and then email it or print it out to discuss with your doctor and to keep the questions for your conversation in sight.

At your appointment, tell your doctor about all of the prescription medications, over-the-counter medications, and vitamin supplements you may be taking. And if you and your doctor decide treatment is right for you, before you start your therapy, be sure to tell your doctor if you have breast cancer; prostate cancer; urinary problems due to enlarged prostate; heart, kidney, or liver problems; or problems breathing while you sleep (sleep apnea) or any other medical condition.

Of course, these questions are just suggestions. If you have more specific questions, be sure to add them to your list.

  1. Do I have a medical condition that could cause low testosterone levels?
  2. Based on my underlying medical condition, do I need blood tests that measure my total testosterone and the free testosterone in my body?
  3. What medical treatment options are available if I have hypogonadism due to a certain medical condition?
  4. How does testosterone replacement therapy work?
  5. How is AndroGel 1.62% used?
  6. Is AndroGel 1.62% right for me?
  7. Can diet, exercise, and lifestyle affect testosterone levels?

Safety Considerations
AndroGel 1.62% is not meant for use in women, children under the age of 18, or men with low testosterone due to aging alone.
