How does KYZATREX work?

KYZATREX is an immediate-release oral testosterone undecanoate. It is absorbed through the lymphatic system, where the body then uses it to replace testosterone that has been lost as a result of various medical conditions.

How is low testosterone diagnosed?

Diagnosing Low T involves simple lab tests to measure your Total Testosterone (Total T) and Free Testosterone (Free T), along with Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG), which affects Free T availability. Total T gives an overall level, while Free T shows the testosterone available for your body’s use. High SHBG can lower Free T, impacting its availability. Your doctor may suggest these tests and follow-up labs to monitor your testosterone levels over time, ensuring your treatment is accurately tailored to your needs.
