Australian Testosterone for Men - FAQ

Q. What is meant by the term bioidentical hormones?

A. The term “bioidentical hormones” refers to hormones that are identical to those produced naturally by specialist glands in the body such as the ovaries, testes, adrenal glands, thyroid and pancreas. The bioidentical hormone, testosterone has the exact chemical fingerprint as that which is produced by the testes in men. Many pharmaceutical hormones are not bioidentical, but are actually synthetic analogues which may have similar effects as bioidentical hormones. In the case of synthetic testosterone analogues, they do not have as wide a spectrum of effects as bioidentical testosterone. They are generally stronger in their anabolic effects and they have unwanted side effects on the skin, testes and liver compared to the bioidentical hormone testosterone.

Q. How do I know if I need testosterone?

A. You may have noticed changes in your mood, your thoughts, your muscle strength, your body shape, your sexual arousal and/or sexual function and your energy levels. Changes in these areas provide clues to a possibility of low testosterone. Your doctor can do a blood test to determine if levels are in the lower range. Taking our low-testosterone symptoms test will also establish the need for testosterone supplementation.
