The “T” in the low “T” therapy denotes decreased levels of the testosterone hormone. It is the hormone that is produced in both the genders in their respective reproduction organs. Levels of testosterone decide a person’s sexual drive, physical built, muscle and bone mass, strength and body hair. Presence of this hormone is comparatively higher in men as compared to women and is important for smooth physical, sexual and metabolic performances in them. As a man ages, the level of testosterone hormone reduces in men, visibly after the age of 30, although change in its degree is continuous throughout his lifetime. A fall in the testosterone levels below 300 ng/dL might experience the dangers of the low-T levels.
