Testosterone replacement treatment
WHAT IS TESTOSTERONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY?
Testosterone replacement treatment is hormonal therapy. The role of testosterone as an androgen in men is very important. The lack of testosterone production that happens as part of the aging process might bring many problems in men. Typically starting from age 35 and above. Lack of power, bad mood, grumpiness, depression, loss of muscle mass, reduction in libido, and erectile dysfunction are some of the symptoms of deficiency in testosterone.
