Question:

Submitted on March 14th by Ned Albright

I am a 74 year old male with symptoms of low testosterone. Blood test indicate that my T level is “normal for my age”. I am not “happy” at this level.
I have a filled compounded prescription for Testosterone 1% cream. The container also indicates 30 ml SCHEI. What does the SCHEI indicate? The dosage is 1 ml 4 times weekly. Any comments?

Answer:

I am not aware of the SCHEI reference on your testosterone 1% cream. I Googled the term thinking it may be an abbreviation used by compounding pharmacies and can’t find any answers. You may want to call the pharmacy in question and ask them directly. Sorry I couldn’t have been of any further help!

Can you recommend any Board Certified Specialists in the Sacramento California area?

Answer:

Hi Mr. Porter. AAG Health has a nationwide network of age management physicians that specialize in hormone treatment plans or men and women. At present we do not have any specialists in the Sacramento area. However, we do have a great doctor in Tiburon that would d be delighted to see you. Let me know if you need additional information and I’ll get one of my Patients Care Coordinators to contact you with information.
