I couldn’t say. I haven’t done the research.

However, my thinking is that people are trying to avoid something that is natural and supposed to happen. We may not like it, but that’s the way it works. Messing with things that naturally happen to our bodies seems like a bad idea to me. There’s plenty of natural ways to keep your testosterone from declining too rapidly. I would explore those options first.

Not a hoax or scam at all. For some, it is genetics, for others they don't eat right, and there are those that have a disease or other issue that affects testosterone levels. Tried all the patches, gels, etc. Started on the bi-weekly injections and only regret I have is not doing it sooner. At 57 and 275 lbs I pay more attention to proteins and carbs, consume less sugar, eat less fast food. Try to hit the gym at least twice a week, sometimes 3 or 4 times depending on how I feel which is usually dictated by how much of, and quality of sleep.

It's real. Lots of Firemen are on therapy. The reason ours drops prematurely is due to lack of sleep, and constant interrupted sleep.

Set the jokes aside, we have heart attacks and strokes in our 30's, 40's, and 50's also due to terrible sleep patterns, that are involuntary.

^^^This. Poor nutrition, lack of sleep, and inactivity with sedentary lifestyles and of course genetics all contribute. Pharma is making big jack on this too but it's a natural part of aging.

Sounds like the life of a parent.

I tend to think its more people wanting to be something they aren't anymore and for many it serves the purpose of the little blue pill without admitting they need/want the little blue pill. I have no first hand, never done any of it never will.

I thought all firemen did all day was cook, lift weights, and wash trucks.

How in the world does Testosterone substitute for a blue pill? Testosterone has nothing to do with the ability to have an erection.

I just see the advertisements on tv all the time about "oh and she'll like it too" wink wink and "make you the man you used to be" bring back and increase "passion" lol and the list goes on, if its not an effect of it they sure are trying to advertise that it is.

Life of a parent for a child that never grows up. So you're saying there's no case for lack of sleep, low testosterone, stress and heart attacks among U.S. Firemen? Be sure and tell that to the 100 families that have to endure those deaths every year.

Nope, life of a parent was pretty much the only thing there towards your comment, the rest is just my general thoughts of it.

Those are for erectile dysfunction meds, not testosterone. Testosterone is a vital hormone that seriously aids in body repair and rebuild. Thus making it very important for recovery, and heart health. I think you stuck your foot in your mouth on this one. wink
