Has testosterone ever been a treatment?

I’ve just come across this Guardian article on the gender bias when it comes to contracting chronic disease (such as ME/CFS and Long Covid). Seems higher levels of oestrogen might be a contributing factor. Was just wondering if taking testosterone in some form has been tried yet as a treatment for us? (as a male, this may be worth trying, though of course for women Perhaps supplementing with T may be undesirable).

Dr. Bieger does, when levels are low. He always tests for it. I've never been low so I don't know if that would help. Unfortunately, testosterone has many horrible side effects

I recall 2 different people with ME/CFS, his Doctor checked his Growth hormone & Testosterone both low normals the other one was low in one. They both became well with replacements. One mentioned if either hormone is off the other one will not function properly. Not sure if one took Anabolic hormones

There are a few sexual hormones that could be involved and are done by Bieger. I remember T, FAI, LH, TSH, pregnenolone, and as -sulfate… (for the males)
He is highly experienced… you can watch him on YouTube maybe with auto subtitles … now he mostly works with Abilify afaik
