If you’re a man with low testosterone, you should know about the low T patch. It’s one of the best ways for you to get supplemental testosterone that can get you back to your old self again. Up until just recently, many men didn’t know anything about low T and doctor weren’t likely to test for it. Women were the only ones who were thought to have trouble with their hormones, especially when they were going through the change of life. Doctors now understand that men go through their own change of life, called andropause.
While male menopause is not usually as prolonged or as noticeable as what women must go through, some men do have a more difficult time with it than other men. These men may be more sensitive to their fluctuating hormone levels and the resulting drop in testosterone, or they simply may have a more significant or more rapid change in testosterone levels that makes the symptoms come on suddenly and makes them more noticeable. For men who are having these kinds of difficulties, the low t patch can help. That’s good news for men who previously weren’t sure what was wrong and were told that no treatment was available.
Some younger men have lower T levels, too, and they can also use the low T patch. If you want to try this treatment, though, you’ll need to get it from your doctor. It’s not a good idea to take hormones on your own, without supervision, and in most places you can’t get them without a prescription. Symptoms of low T may have sent you to your doctor, so let him help you determine what kind of treatment will be the best for your needs. It’s important to make an informed decision.
As with any kind of hormone replacement therapy, the low T patch can cause side effects. There are certain men who should not use the patch because of a family history of specific conditions or because of their own medical condition. Of course, your doctor will be able to tell you whether you’re a good candidate for a patch to provide you with supplemental testosterone. If you are a good candidate you’ll want to read up on the patch and decide whether you feel that it’s safe for you. Every man is different and you must make your own choices as to whether you feel the benefits outweigh the risks.
