Many men as they age experience a drop in their testosterone levels. And men with hormone deficiency experience similar symptoms as women including being tired, experience a mental “fog,” having a lowered sex drive, depression, difficulty losing weight, and aches and pain. If a man’s symptoms are caused by testosterone deficiency based on laboratory test results, then yes bio-identical hormone replacement can be beneficial.
