Testosterone impacts numerous areas regarding the individual’s health. This includes muscle mass, body fat, bone density, mood and red blood cell count.

This may include testosterone pellets, intramuscular injections or both.
One of the most common types of testosterone replacement therapy is called bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). Numerous physicians have found this process to be both an effective and easy way of providing men with testosterone.
