    What DOES and WHY does Testosterone help with fatigue

    I've never seen the fatigue question answered in detail. What IS testosterone doing in your body that providing TRT solves the fatigue issue. I know it does help fatigue but in a normal person or in a supplemented man with TRT what IS it doing that affects good or bad fatigue.
