if HIGH TESTOSTERONE LEVELS IN A TEENAGER CAUSE HIM TO ACT OUT VIOLENTLY, is it likely same person will experience violence when receiving these hormone shots as a sixty something patient?

This is Dr. David

usually high testosterone levels during teenage years cause puberty and addolecent changes in young adults when their brains are not fully developed and their identity are not fully developed

usually this is not a problem at 60 some years of age

at that age, men can often have low testosterone levels and often benefit from testosterone injections to help bring up their levels.

usually it doesn't cause violent acts as an adult

does the person have a history of mental illness or violence at other times?
