The recent conflicting findings on testosterone treatment prompted Patel and his team to run a big systematic literature search for studies assessing the relationship between testosterone replacement therapy and cardiovascular events among guys. An estimated 13 million men in America suffer from low testosterone, which occurs when the body fails to make enough hormones as a result of a difficulty with the testicles or pituitary gland. This explains apparent aging, a person's sudden weight gain and loss of energy.
No clear lower limit of testosterone has been established; nevertheless 15 ng per dL (0.5 nmol per L) generally is used. One study 38 found that women with 0 to 10 ng per dL (0 to 0.3 nmol per L) had markedly decreased sexual desire in all scenarios and absent or markedly reduced orgasms. Because of studies similar to this, supplemented with anecdotal evidence, many girls are started on testosterone therapy. Most women can expect to spend one third of their lives in the postmenopausal period. Depression, anger, moodiness, insomnia, and lack of well-being are common complaints of postmenopausal women.
