Pharmaceutical companies can be conniving, often using psychological and strategic marketing techniques to drive the sales of their products. The companies that manufacture testosterone replacement therapy products are no different. They have aggressively marketed their products as solutions for men suffering from a condition known as “Low-T,” a baseless term that was also manufactured by the pharmaceutical companies.
Low-T is a medically unproven condition that pharmaceutical companies describe as exhibiting symptoms such as low sex drive, loss of muscle tone, and fatigue. Testosterone replacement therapy has been approved to treat men with low testosterone levels caused by hypogonadism, a condition that causes naturally occurring hormone testosterone not to be released within the body in standard amounts, but not for “Low-T.”
Many men have taken testosterone therapy drugs for Low-T were never tested to see if they even needed any kind of testosterone therapy or that they even had below average hormone levels. Some of these men were merely just showing signs of natural sexual decline due to aging.
