Low Testosterone or Adrenal Fatigue???
How Do You Tell if You Have low Testosterone or Low Testosterone Due tp Adrenal Fatigue?
Does Adrenal Fatigue even exist?
Okay, this may not be as exciting as looking at oiled up spray tan guys barking about raising your testosterone….but this does make more sense.
Hormone replacement therapy is the hot industry buzzword and clinics are popping up faster than Crossfit gyms.
Disclaimer: There is a lot of controversy about this stuff. Doctors debate if Adrenal Fatigue actually exists? I am not claiming to be an expert on this. I don’t have a dog in this fight.
What I do think is alot of people. yes women are big on this too, jump into to a lifetime of hormone replacement without looking at other possible causes.
So what can cause Low T?
- Lack of sleep
- Poor Nutrition
- Being over-tired
- Getting old.
Except for the last reason, you can fix all the others.
My thought on this is that a lot of people find it easier to get a shot in the butt than to learn how to take care of themselves.
In fact, the hormone replacement therapy is an excuse not to change their lifestyle.
Kind of like a more aggressive version of drinking caffeine all day because you need energy.
So, do you need it?
For a lot of people the answer is no. This is something you need to do your research on before dropping your pants in front of a doctor.
#1 Introducing exogenous testosterone in your body means you will have to do this treatment the rest of your life. If you want normal test levels.
In other words if your body is getting this from an outside source, it doesn’t need to make it itself. So it stops or at the very least slows down.
Stop the treatment and your levels will plummet lower than when you started. You will be a wreck for awhile.
#2 HRT is expensive.
#3 What a great way to build repeat customers for the clinic. Great for Doctors who want to make tons of money giving people shots in the butt and bad for you if this really isn’t the issue.
If you have low testosterone it may mean that something is going on upline causing the low testosterone production. Adding test to your system is treating the effect not the cause.
That is why hormone therapy is not always effective.
Look at this article of on the adrenals. There is a short 3 minute video that will answer a lot of questions you may have.
Hopefully it will make sense to you. Or google “pregnenolone dump”.
