any other guys in the forum with testosterone problems?

I was just curious to know if any of the guys in the group have testosterone issues and are you currently under treatment for this as well?

I've never needed treatment for it. I have read that some have here in the past.

Testosterone levels will drop if thyroid levels drop, and then resume when thyroid levels do. If they dont, then its an individual testosterone issue.

This hormone also naturally drops with age in the 40 to 50 range and can have more symptoms related to it than what people first think off, but obviously, not as severe as thyroid..

There are 3 testosterone tests, all 3 need to be tested consecutive for three months for accuracy, as they vary a lot. Free, total, and bioavailable testosterone are the names.
