Can I take testosterone supplement?
Q: I read the medical study of 1928 that paralysis happens after the dysfunctioning of the carotid artery and it is due to male abnormal hormones. Can the inj. Testoviron be given to the patients of paralysis with diabetese and hypertension?
A:The world of medicine has come a long way since 1928 and it would be unwise to rely on such an ancient study. In any case there are many reasons for paralysis and lack of male sex hormone is not the cause. However the description given by you with regard to patients complaint is of stiffness of nerves and not paralysis. You have stated one of the medicines being taken as Antiplatelet 1 tab daily. What does it contain? No purpose will be served, and infact some harm may come, if testosterone is unnecessarily injected. It is to be used only when there is proven, documented deficiency.
