This is the fifth video in our series on testosterone. Most people do not know this, but there is a chemical that your body can make that causes your testosterone to turn into estrogen. This chemical is called aromatase.
In a functional medicine or alternative medicine clinic, a person with low testosterone is going to have their estrogen checked. This is to make sure that their body isn’t using aromatase to create an issue where the person has too much estrogen and too little testosterone.
If you are suffering with low testosterone, or know someone who is suffering from low testosterone, be sure to work with a practitioner who knows to look into these different things.
