A healthy diet and regular exercise are necessary for good health and to ensure the maximum effectiveness of testosterone treatment. Doctors and researchers have varying opinions regarding the effectiveness of testosterone replacement therapy. Most agree that study results are mixed for most conditions. Testosterone treatment is not advised for men with prostate or breast cancer. Additionally, testosterone therapy may worsen sleep apnea in older people.
During puberty , testosterone helps boys develop male features like body and facial hair, deeper voice, and muscle strength. Testosterone levels generally decrease with age, so older men tend to have low blood testosterone levels. Not only this though, it also helps lower the levels of the ‘Sex Hormone Binding Globulin’ which makes testosterone non-functional. If this is lowered testosterone can have more of an impact on your body. However, a person can also increase testosterone levels naturally, by exercising regularly and maintaining a healthful weight.
