Testosterone and Catecholamines

Simple question- Can low testosterone levels have any effect on proper catecholamine function, such as Dopamine and Norepinephrine? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.

Until we add brain biopsies to the suggested labs, we will never know. But based on what we have reported here, TRT can greatly improve one’s sense of well-being if there are no underlying histopathologies. So from there, one can draw conclusions. There is also the relative effects of transitioning to great sex and going from feeling like crap to feeling great. So which is the cause and which is the effect. As always, it is nice to have broad conclusions, but for the individual, what happens to him is his only reality. You become an expert in your sample of one.
