Woman with Low Testosterone Levels

02/24/2011

Question:

My doctor recently ran some blood tests, and I have almost no free testosterone, which I believe is contributing to low energy, depression, and sexual issues. Is it better to treat with testosterone cream, or a DHEA supplement? Thanks.

Answer:

DHEA works for most people without the negative testosterone side effects.
