Yes, LEOs are at an increased risk for Low-T. By the nature of police work, officers are frequently under both physical and mental stress. Stressful environments affect hormonal responses; specifically changes in testosterone (decreased) to cortisol (increased) ratios. Studies have found free testosterone values were significantly lower in policemen than in control groups.
Mood changes can be a sign of low testosterone (Low T). Many people with Low T experience depression, irritability and anxiety.
If you have low T, boosting your testosterone levels with TRT can help bring your energy levels back to normal. It can also restore your sex drive.

I for one love that men can now explain unexplainable behavior on hormones!

Interestingly, we're rewarded with both bumps of serotonin and testosterone when we perceive to gain social status. I think the issue is for people with naturally high testosterone, who are losers. They may drop a bit of T, but still be high enough, and yet with perhaps severely low serotonin, so they become antisocial, and physically lash out.

If the cops didn't drink so much coffee, their cortisol levels wouldn't be so high. They can cancel that out by just drinking beer every night though, the bromelain used to clarify beer increases testosterone.
So why not raise testosterone levels the natural way...drink beer.
