This will be familiar to any blokes in their mid-forties. I've just tuned 52 and although I'm fit I find that my muscles are wasting away, my once firm pecs are turning to boobs, I put on weight easily, my eye-to-hand coordination is deteriorating, I haven't got the energy I once had, I tire easily and I seldom get erections; all inevitable consequences of declining testosterone levels. It doesn't really bother me as I see it as part of growing old but I would like to maintain better muscle tone and bulk, so I have thought about asking my doc for some testosterone. I know this has overtones of body-building and is probably dangerous if done without medical supervision, but does anybody else have experience of this? Would a GP consider giving testosterone to someone who seriously wanted to maintain athletic fitness? I knew a bloke who had his testicles removed and was given a patch to prevent him becoming feminised.
