There are many misconceptions surrounding testosterone replacement for men. Generally, a man’s level of testosterone begins to decline around the age of 40. Some men experience it earlier, especially if you’ve overused certain pain medications or experimented with anabolic steroids (for muscle growth). Symptoms of low testosterone include:
- Low energy
- Low sex drive
- Low sexual performance
- Loss of muscle mass
- Low cognitive function at work and home
If you have these symptoms you may have testosterone deficiency and thus may benefit from testosterone replacement. Testosterone can be given as a topical agent like cream or patch as well as injection into the shoulder (deltoid muscle) or buttock (gluteus muscle) by Doctor Sung S. Yang.
