In men, low testosterone levels in the body can be supplemented by hormone replacement with testosterone. Testosterone replacement therapy can be prescribed as an intramuscular injection usually given on a biweekly basis; as a patch or gel placed on the skin, or as putty that is applied to the gums of the mouth. Each of the treatments has its risks and benefits. The decision as to which form of testosterone to use depends upon the clinical situation. Discussions between the patient and health care professional often helps decide which medication to use.
In the United States there are currently no preparations that are FDA approved for testosterone replacement for women.
While the manner in-which our lifestyle is laid out, ignorance is often part of the problem; many people simply havent a clue to what healthy living really is but when we are speaking of low testosterone it is ignorance of the occurrence that is one of the saddest factors of all. For many men, when the signs of low testosterone show up they will simply ignore them, either hoping they will magically go away or assuming there is nothing they can do about. Further, many men will attribute the signs of low testosterone to stress and while stress can play a role in all the symptoms listed above, many times this stress is actually caused or heightened by low testosterone.
