Please read the following information carefully before you go ahead with any new and/or expensive testosterone product.
What is testosterone replacement therapy? Treatment for men with low levels of testosterone is referred to as testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) by many physicians. TRT refers to the use of anabolic steroids, or a substance that acts on the body's production of androgen hormones like testosterone, to increase muscle mass and strength and reduce the risks of the development of diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes and dementia. TRT is currently most commonly used for male-to-female transsexuals (MTFs), and to prevent unwanted sexual development in women. The use of androgens such as testosterone is also widely used for women, although it is not universally available in the USA. TRT is not a new treatment for the treatment of prostate cancer, although it is increasingly being used to treat the symptoms associated with prostate cancer. The main risk of TRT is that it can result in a decline in testosterone production by the body. Therefore, TRT can cause significant and long-lasting decreases in muscle strength and physical function, and can also increase the risk of prostate cancer. It is important to note that, although the risks of using TRT are very low, some people with severe androgen deficiency may not respond to treatment.
