Low-t is treatable with medication. There are several options of treatment including gel, patch, injection, implantable pellets, off-label medications, Clomid, Aromatase Inhibitors, and HCG.
Granger Medical Clinic is taking part in a clinical trial for Enclomiphene, an estrogen receptor blocker which is related to Clomid. It is an oral medication. The clinical trial is designed to evaluate the effects of the medication on fertility, testosterone levels, laboratory values, and on eye exams. It will compare Enclomiphene, Androgel and a placebo.
To take part in the research study, a man must be overweight, must have secondary hypogonadism, his testosterone level must be below 300 (tested as part of the trial), and must have normal sperm concentration (must not have had a vasectomy). There will be compensation up to $2,500.00.
The low-testosterone study is going on at Granger Medical Clinic, Riverton location at 12391 South 4000 West. Please call (801) 302-1721 or (801) 302-1766 or visit: Granger Medical for more information.
