It is vital for our doctors to know that you are dealing with low T before prescribing any testosterone injections. Firstly, for your safely and well being, but also because it is the law. Our US government restricts the sale, distribution and usage of testosterone injections to only those who are diagnosed with low T and who get a prescription for the injections. This is to keep everyone safe. Testosterone medications are potent and must be used correctly when the signs of a low testosterone level point to a real testosterone deficiency.

The signs of extremely low testosterone are best to be caught with a blood test early. This way, doctors can prescribe the right medications to increase low T levels and balance them out. Symptoms will disappear and quality of life will come back. Relationships can be saved (both social and personal) and life can have meaning again.

Do Men And Women Have Different Signs Of Low Testosterone Levels

Many people believe that only men have testosterone and need to keep their levels up, but this is not true. The proof is when women show signs of low testosterone, get tested and find out that they have low T. This is when it is very apparent that both genders need enough of this vital hormone to stay strong and healthy. Men just need more of the hormone than women do.

Of course, some of the signs of low testosterone in males will be different than what they are in women such as erectile dysfunction, but other than that, both genders share symptoms. Low T levels can cause weight gain, loss of muscle, weakness, lack of energy, low bone density and the risk of heart attack, stroke and diabetes in both sexes. Both men and women can experience lack of sexual desire, depression and forgetfulness due to low T as well.
