Many aging men say they have benefited from testosterone replacement therapy.

Every testosterone replacement therapy candidate should get a medical evaluation, which would include a blood test.

Symptoms alone don’t always tell the whole story because some of the symptoms of low testosterone could be caused by something else.

It can be a challenge to find men who have the symptoms, a low testosterone number, and then determine that one is causing the other.

The other reason you want to be sure you actually need testosterone replacement therapy is because once you start treatments, you don’t stop.
