Toying with testosterone

Testosterone marketing ploys by Big Pharma have patients asking for testosterone from their docs. If you have low testosterone levels, taking testosterone could improve how you feel, but it doesn’t have any impact on other medical outcomes where it counts, like in coronary heart disease, myocardial infarction and stroke. Clever marketing has led men to think that with a little more testosterone they can have more muscle mass, be stronger, more alert, and just about any other benefits they want. What are the side effects? Shrinking testicles, jaundice, depression, nausea, vomiting, headache, dizziness, hair loss, trouble sleeping, redness/swelling of the skin, change in skin color, acne and more. Bottom line, testosterone is a “quality-of-life drug” recommended for men with low testosterone levels (< 300 ng/dL) – not something to toy with.
