This therapy is marketed to men promising them it will increase “energy & libido” and that it will help fight “low-t (low testosterone)”. Like menopause in women a decrease in men’s testosterone level is a natural function of aging. For each year, over the age of 30, levels of testosterone start to slowly dip at a rate of around 1% annually (Mayo Clinic, 2012). A normal level of testosterone (per Harvard Medical School) recommends to be around 300 – 450 ng/NL (nanograms per deciliter) for men over 65. Men can have a simple blood test done to determine their testosterone levels.
