Do you feel lethargic, depressed, decreased libido? Do you have difficulty concentrating, irritability and low sense of well-being? Maybe you need some testosterone….Or not. Testosterone replacement therapy has become very popular lately to treat common symptoms associated with aging. But is it safe?
This topic is very controversial. Federal Drug Administration approved testosterone supplements, like AndroGel, are only available by prescription from your physician. However, physicians will not prescribe them without determining low testosterone levels. Even then, the risk of side effects such as increased volume of red blood cells, which can lead to blood clots, needs to be considered. The long-term risks and benefits are unknown. A low testosterone level by itself doesn’t necessarily require treatment. Testosterone therapy should never be initiated without symptoms of low testosterone and blood levels confirming this as the cause of symptoms. No treatment is currently recommended for the millions of men who have documented low testosterone levels, but no symptoms.
Think twice before using testosterone boosters, as they may have unintended consequences.
