Double check: testosterone levels fluctuate normally, so to confirm a testosterone deficiency it is very important to test twice, and the test should be done as early in the morning as possible to maximize accuracy. If a repeat test, properly done, confirms a T deficiency then hormone replacement may indeed make you feel better, and there is no alternate way to correct a true testosterone deficiency.
