been a flood of advertising about treatment of men with “low T”.There is little doubt that some men feel
better if their blood testosterone is low and they are treated with the
hormone.However, there might be a
slight increase in the risk for heart attacks in patients that have been
treated with synthetic testosterone.With the limited evidence we have at this time, it would be advisable to
first try natural approaches, such as supplements to raise nitric oxide.If testosterone is prescribed, bio-identical
hormone replacement might be preferable.
