Get another opinion : Let him know your concern and ask for a better explanation. There are side effects from testosterone supplements including sleep apnea, enlarged prostate, worsening of cholesterol and pre-diabetes. Some doctors don't like to treat "borderline" levels because of these risks. Finally, if you and your doctor can't agree about your condition, it may be time for a change. But have the face to face.

New doc?: If you truly have low testosterone which is felt to be irreversible, and you understand the potential consequences of testosterone replacement, including infertility, then you may need a doctor who is more comfortable prescribing and monitoring it.
