Can Testosterone Levels Be Too High?

Yes, testosterone levels can be too high, a condition known as hyperandrogenism. This can occur due to several reasons, including the use of anabolic steroids or other performance-enhancing drugs, certain tumors that produce excess testosterone, and certain genetic conditions that lead to the overproduction of testosterone.

High levels of testosterone can cause a range of symptoms in both men and women, including acne, hair loss, mood swings, aggression, and infertility. In women, high testosterone levels can also cause irregular menstrual cycles, hirsutism (excessive hair growth), and deepening of the voice. With all substances in the body it is important that there is a balance.

If you are concerned about your testosterone levels, it is important to talk to an Optimal T Staff member, who can order a blood test to check your hormone levels and recommend appropriate treatment if necessary.
