Muscle loss

I’m only about a year or so in and I feel like I’m disappearing. I’m eating really clean(no sugar) lately, so between the fat and muscle loss there is not much left. One thing I have is really low testosterone. Always have, however it’s extremely low now and probably contributing to the muscle loss. Has anyone tried supplementing testosterone. I need it...regardless of the cfs. Just don’t want to compound my problems. Thanks for listening.
