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.
I have suffered from being cold my entire life. I’m now 47. Several years ago I started my quest to see if there was any help for my symptoms which are as follows. Severely cold most of the time. Extremely cold hands and feet. Go to bed freezing and wake up in middle of the night drenched in sweat and of course back to freezing. Tired regardless of how much sleep I get, never feel energetic in the morning. I look at food and gain weight, so when I do eat I barely eat, I don’t smoke and rarely drink. Been tested for pre-menapasul, not it. Been blood tested for Thyroid and told all came back normal. Even had a Endocrinologist ask my why I was there and then they prescribed me Prozac, as if I was making this all up. It is so upsetting to look around a room of people who are so comfortable and I’m bundled up because I’m cold, or to be at the pool with my children the outside temp is 78 and it’s too cold for me to get in the water with them. Took my temp mid afternoon the last 2 days and it is . Is this normal? Is there any help?
