Women, just like men, suffer from lower Testosterone levels as they age. We know the affect this can have on your life including weight gain, fatigue, insomnia or disruption of your regular menstrual cycle.
According to the National Institutes of Health, a healthy young woman should produce about 300 microg of testosterone daily.
The ovaries produce half of this and the rest originates from the adrenal glands. Testosterone has many functions, some of which include influencing the various stages of puberty and sexual function.
Other areas are affected too, such as bone density, muscle mass, mood and energy reserves.
Low T or Testosterone deficiency is linked to a number of conditions including:
• Adrenal disease
• Pituitary disease,
• HIV infection
• Premature ovarian failure
• Turner’s syndrome, and the use of high-dose corticosteroids and some estrogen preparations
However, it is generally accepted that most of the time aging plays a significant role along with Menopause in contributing to the decline of Testosterone.
Testosterone deficiencies and its broader condition Female Androgen Deficiency (FADS) are under constant research by The Regenx Medical Institute and government agencies such as the NIH.
A medically supervised HRT program may be just what you need to fight off fatigue, weight gain and general swelling on parts of your body.
