“I’m 49 now and started with BHRC four years ago. So, when I was 45. But I had started to notice symptoms when I turned 38, 39 or so. My sex drive was near zero and I was tired all the time. I thought I was just getting older. But what bothered me was that I was having chest pain. I kept going to different doctors because I thought I had heart problems. That went on for years, but they never could find anything.
“What’s weird is my only reason for going to BHRC was to take my mother in to talk about getting help for her. But after talking with Dan about my issues, I decided to see the BHRC physician to have my own levels checked. It turned out that my testosterone was through the floor, just really low. I learned from Dan that testosterone is very important to cardiovascular health, especially in males.
“I started on testosterone and amazingly, my chest pains completely went away almost immediately. My energy came back and my sex drive was where it had been when I was a kid. But the main thing for me was that I no longer felt like I was about to have a heart attack.
“Will I continue? Yes. Would I recommend it? Absolutely. For anyone in their late thirties or higher, if you have symptoms that your doctor can’t solve, or if you don’t have the energy or the fitness you used to have, I would absolutely get checked.”
