I was wondering if testosterone is dangerous for me a n HIV+ person NO complications so otherwise very healthy. well except for spastic legs which hopefully will disappear. So I guess I have 2 questions. Also your story recenlty on this site was very well written and enjoyable. Thank you for your knowledge and time Tim

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi Tim,

The risks associated with testosterone replacement therapy are no different for HIVers than for their neggie counterparts. If you have hypogonadism (low testosterone levels), testosterone replacement therapy could be quite beneficial in many ways, including increasing your energy level, sex drive and muscle mass and making your Mr. Happy much happier. You can read much more about hypogonadism and testosterone in the expert forum Fatigue and Anemia. We have a chapter in the archives devoted to the topic.

Good luck. Be well Tim.
