EDIT: Either way, it seems that there is no negative effects on cardiac health, but you still get the other benefits so it's worth thinking about.

I completely agree, women take all sorts of hormones that affect levels in their bodies under the guise of controlling their own healthcare. Breast implants, belly bands, nose jobs, lipo, sex changes etc...
I don't see why if a guy wants to choose to alter his hormone levels he shouldn't be allowed to do it.
I remember reading an article from Starr i think or another York lifter who wrote that just taking testosterone wouldn't change ones performance.
What would happen if one with normal testosterone levels would supplement testosterone?
Something similar to steroid use?
Josiah, a water cooler discussion and a discussion with your/a doctor are two different things. Have you thought to ask?
The medical "profession" deals with numbers on a chart. As long as you're within "x" range, they have been told you're fine. However, you are the customer. It is actually common for someone in their 20s to be dealing with low range testosterone. Should they be supplemented? Yup. That's why T-clinics are popping up all over the nation and why they're wildly successful. Because it's their business to say "yes" to questions such as yours. But go talk to someone. Be shot down from your doctor (or two) before you spout off on the internet that "this is how it is." Because even if you're in the mid-range of where you're supposed to be, they'll help you get to the higher range of the number chart so you feel better.
And Oldster? I don't know you nor have I ever responded to anything you've written so it's unfortunate that this is the first time; but; please; listen to your doctor. There is no reason why you can't try a small dosage and go from there. You'll feel better physically and mentally. It will have a positive impact in basically all areas of your life. If I'm wrong, you can come back and publicly tell me how wrong I was.
But I'm not.

Well, between what Carlos, my brother and now you say, I'll go in and talk with him again on Monday since I have an appointment to be there for a blood draw. I'll try and remember to let you know what he has to say.but; please; listen to your doctor. There is no reason why you can't try a small dosage and go from there.
