While treatment will increase your levels there is an interesting fact we cannot ignore. Low testosterone is not easily defined; there is no set standard, no accepted level. Granted, certain readings will be deemed low by all physicians and generally there is a more or less accepted low reading(s) but where they should end up is often highly debated. Due in-part to a lack of education regarding anabolic steroid hormones in general is largely responsible for these discrepancies among many physicians; again, this will make a hormone replacement clinic a far superior choice in most cases.
“My family doctor basically told me that I had to live with my Low T problem which was not something I wanted to hear. He told me this for 2 years and in fact it made me so mad that I am no longer his patient. I decided to get checked at TCT. After a thorough evaluation, including checking my blood, they told me that Low T was not something that I had to live with and in fact, they have helped with my other medical problems. They are treating my blood pressure, cholesterol and erection problems as well. I’m in my late forties and finally feel like I have been “tuned-up”. I feel better than I have in years which allows me to focus less on me and more on the things I find important. Thank you to everyone who helped get me where I am, including my ex-doctor. Keep up the good work TCT!” — Todd J.
But I'm not more aggressive—a behavior change often tied to testosterone. That's not surprising to Robert Sapolsky, ., a neuroendocrinologist at Stanford University and a leading researcher on stress and behavior. "It's really not the case that testosterone 'causes' aggressive behavior," he says. "Instead, it makes the brain more sensitive to social cues that trigger aggression. And in support of that, a guy's testosterone level isn't a very good predictor of how likely he is to be aggressive."
