Testosterone Resistance

Symptoms not Blood Tests are the Answer

The latest research has shown that there is no relationship between blood levels of testosterone and the typical symptoms of testosterone deficiency. This is because, like insulin resistance in diabetes, there are varying degrees of testosterone resistance in each man causing a relative rather than absolute insufficiency of the hormone. This is why less than 5% of the men who could benefit from it are being given treatment. The symptoms give the diagnosis, and when testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is given on this basis, they usually go away and stay away, whether you start with low or high testosterone levels. Doctors should be treating the patient and not the laboratory. Its simple!
