The symptoms of low-testosterone are relatively easy to diagnose. They include lethargy, low libido, weakness, depression, and memory loss. Because these symptoms are often diagnosed without blood work as depression or a mood disorder, many people end up on medications that actually will not increase their testosterone, and therefore they won’t see results. The only way to diagnose low testosterone is by getting a blood test to test the actual levels. Once it’s confirmed that testosterone levels are low, then a doctor can prescribe a testosterone supplement in order to treat your symptoms and restore natural levels of testosterone.
4. Through a complex process that I’m not even going to attempt to describe, our testicles’ Leydig cells convert cholesterol into testosterone. That’s right, cholesterol is the building block of testosterone. Leydig cells get most of what they need to produce T by simply absorbing the cholesterol floating around in our blood from the bacon and eggs we ate in the morning. If there’s not enough cholesterol in our blood, our testicles can produce a bit of it so that the Leydig cells can convert it to testosterone. But relying too much on cholesterol produced by our nuts (of the non-almond variety) can actually inhibit our Leydig cells from producing T . You gotta eat those eggs!
MY HUSBAND IS ALREADY TAKING A TESTOSTERONE REPLACEMENT COMPOUNDED JUST FOR HIM. BECAUSE HIS TESTOSTERONE WAS IN THE BASEMENT OF THE CHART. HIS RX IS 20% TWO TIMES A DAY THRU A
INTEGRATIVE HEALTH DOCTOR. THE REPLACEMENT THERAPY IS NOT HELPING HIS ED PROBLEM. CAN HE TAKE THIS ALSO? I DON’T WANT TO CAUSE ANY HEALTH ISSUES WITH OVER LOADING HIS SYSTEM. HIS ED WAS NOT HELPED BY VIAGRA, CIALIS, OR LEVITRA, BUT WE FOUND GNC HAD A PRODUCT THAT WORKED GREAT. AND GUESS WHAT… IT WAS PULLED FROM THE SHELF FOR SEVERAL MONTHS, AND THE NEW VERISON SUCKS! JUST WISH I COULD FIND OUT WHAT THE SECRET INGREDIENT WAS THAT THEY TOOK OUT OF THE ORGINIAL PRODUCT. GREED IS NOT ONLY DESTROYING THIS COUNTRY, BUT IT IS DESTROYING MARRIAGES… THANKS FOR YOUR HELP.
