According to The Mayo Clinic , male hypogonadism can begin during fetal development, before puberty, or even during adulthood. In the case of adult hypogonadism, the condition can cause erectile dysfunction, infertility, decrease in beard and body hair growth, decrease in muscle mass, development of breast tissue, and loss of bone mass. The condition can also cause mental and emotional changes similar to those women may experience during menopause. These may include fatigue, decreased sex drive, difficulty concentrating, and hot flashes, The Mayo Clinic reported.
Other side effects include increased risk of heart problems in older men with poor mobility, according to a 2009 study at Boston Medical Center. A 2017 study published in JAMA found that treatments increase coronary artery plaque volume. Additionally, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires manufactures to include a notice on the labeling that states taking testosterone treatments can lead to possible increased risk of heart attacks and strokes. The FDA recommends that patients using testosterone should seek medical attention right away if they have these symptoms:
When we perform testosterone injections we do not arbitrarily stick a needle into the muscle; there are specific points within each muscle that you want to use. Youve probably seen movies or . shows where some guy is supplementing with anabolic steroids and it shows him arbitrarily sticking a needle right into the meat of his butt and then shows him on the field as an animal; in real life that wouldnt happen as he would be temporarily paralyzed. The sciatic nerve runs through our glutes, often the area many movies portray the injection and if you hit the never youre not going to be moving for some time. Each area, each muscle has a spot that may be used and when we know the spots the process is very simple; in reality its no different than eating food its just most dont know how to do it. For example, you wouldnt take a hamburger and try to jam it into your eyeball to eat it, of course not, you know better and testosterone injections are no different.
