Does anyone know about testosterone replacement therapy? Answered


Once I read in a magazine about studies being done with male patients over 40 complaining of feeling tired most of the time and reduced libido. These men received testosterone replacement therapy under physician's supervision and they reported feeling more energetic, increased sexual energy and more muscle with less exercise. I think that it is similar to women receiving estrogen to reduced their menopause symptoms. Why isn't this therapy recommended to more men? Any side effects?

Testosterone treatment is assumed (or proven) to increase some cancer risks.

From what I know, I think the best way to improve and boost your sexual energy by taking drugs like Viagra as they are very famous and everyone seems to be using it these days. Why not, they get rid of your sexual problems and you will feel charged up in no time. They act as the best supplements. Go for it dude...

I know what you meant. W/ref Any side effects?, you've got histories in that area. I knew someone blamed a surprise priapism on that sort of thing...
You'd need medical journals for proper answers though

I seem to remember hearing that it also increased some health risks. If you want to know whether this might make any sense for you, ASK YOUR DOCTOR. Free medical advice received via the internet is usually worth less than you paid for it.
