1. Too high an intake of estrogen-promoting foods (fenugreek, soy, soyproducts)
2. Plastic- bottled drink consumption (there were some news reports that during transport, certain types of plastic bottles were exposed to higher-than-room temprature, causing a molecular break-down of the plastic chemiclas that the human body would absorb and treat like the estrogens in 'the pill')
3. Like mentioned earlier, essential mineral deficiencies (zinc, calcium, magnesium, potassium
4. Vitamine deficiencies (vitamins a,c,e,d, b3 or niacin)
5. An inability to digest certain protiens causing amino acid deficiencies (amino acids are the building blocks for hormones. In testosterone's case, most notable are L-arginine, and L-carnitine.)
6. Other undiagnosed medical problems such as ednocrinological disorders (affect hormone production), diabetes, fibromialgia, auto-immune disorders, ect.
Almost all of the clinical trials studying TRT have been inconclusive or have not followed patients long-term, so this treatment option is still a bit experimental in practice, and the treatment should not be administered to anyone not deemed an exceptional candidate. Because of the serious nature of TRT, patients with less severe testosterone deficiencies may look into safer, alternative treatment options. Any man currently taking TRT needs to see their doctor regularly for checkups, and should report any medical issues immediately. In addition, prostate screenings are essential.
