I can speak from personal experience that at the age of 31 I have testosterone levels of a 60 year old man. I'm undergoing treatments to bring/hold my levels within the normal range so I can live my life like any normal 31 year old. I never did steroids, or any supplement for that matter. For arguements sakes if someone were to have the same issue and be in a professional sport I think they should be entitled to keep their levels within the normal range as many people don't have to deal with that issue.

Now you have a grey area where people decide to abuse the treatments and throw their levels way out of wack and are cheating on purpose. I'm not in support of going way out of the normal limits and abusing the system. Unfortunately a lot of athletes are always looking for that competetive edge and will try and bend the rules as much as possible to gain that edge. I think you need to interpret what TRT use in life and sports means to you and make your own decision. Clearly someone that wants to maintain a normal lifestyle should be able to take part in a program like this if they chose to go down that path in my opinion.
