Hello from JustAnswer. This is Dr. Love and I will be glad to address your questions today.

Testosterone supplementation would typically not be utilized with these hormone levels. The symptoms can be caused by a variety of other reasons, so testosterone supplementation is also not recommended for relief of such symptoms.

It would be appropriate to pursue evaluation for other possible causes of the symptoms. But testosterone supplementation would typically not be recommended.

If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.
