After age 35, testosterone levels begin to decrease rapidly for both men and women. While the hormone testosterone is commonly associated with men, women may also experience adverse effects as testosterone declines. Weight gain, hard-to-lose weight, fatigue, listlessness, depression, and sleep disorders are all common symptoms that can be alleviated with a testosterone treatment.

Studies suggest that women undergoing testosterone replacement may see relief in symptoms of both fatigue and depression.
Common symptoms that can occur due to low T are:

• Increase weight
• Increased fatigue
• Feelings of depression
• Decreased libido
• Trouble sleeping
• Decreased muscle mass
• Decreased endurance
• Feeling washed out

Hormone regulation helps keep testosterone levels consistent to ease symptoms and improve overall quality of life for both men and women.
