Being healthy: Low testosterone can be caused by a number of things. Most common culprits are: obesity, obstructive sleep apnea, medications like opiates/narcotics, chronic illness, testicular disorders. See your doctor for discussion.

Vit D: Low t has many causes, but low vitamin d may be the easiest and most healthy option to correct it. The link between vit. D and testosterone is not totally clear, but many individuals have low d that when addressed their t levels retrain to normal. Before just adding vit d, have other causes for low t evaluated by your doctor. Additionally, adding muscle will improve t.

Which Doc for low T: Any primary care physician would be able to manage almost every case of low testosterone. Laboratory tests would be obtained for total and free testosterone. If the free type is too low then supplement may be prescribed periodic re-assessment of levels and effects then would follow. If such intervention proves ineffective your doctor may refer you to an endocrinologist.

There are none: If you truly have low testosterone (at your age a level below 200) you should see a specialist about prescribing t for you but no otc products will raise t levels.

Go see your doctor: Well, go see his doctor. My bias, but preferably a family doc (or general internist) to start. Lots of other causes that need to be addressed before working on low Testosterone. After fixing other causes of symptoms, if he truly has low T, then need to decide whether future fertility is desired. If yes, then avoid testosterone replacement therapy at all costs as TRT will cause infertility.
