Low Testosterone Treatment – What is androgen replacement?
Androgens are a type of hormone. There are several types of androgens, but testosterone is the main one. When testosterone levels are lower than normal, patients may experience a variety of symptoms.
Symptoms of Low Testosterone include:
- Low libido
- Loss of muscle
- Feeling depressed
- Bone thinning
- Feeling tired
- Loss of facial or body hair
- Developing breasts
- Being slow to go through puberty
If male hormone levels are very low, an endocrinologist can treat this with testosterone, which can be prescribed in the form of a shot, a skin patch, skin gel, or liquid.
