It’s hard to overstate the role that hormones play in your overall health. From protecting against cancer to maintaining libido, energy, weight, muscle tone, strong bones, and other factors, balanced hormone levels significantly affect health and quality of life. If you suffer from symptoms associated with low testosterone levels, testosterone replacement therapy could be the best way for you to reclaim your health.
Symptoms of Low Testosterone
The hormone testosterone is vital for male health. Testosterone levels naturally decline in men over time; however, some men have unusually depressed testosterone levels that can’t be attributed to aging. Low testosterone can happen in men of any age. Signs of abnormally low testosterone include:
- Low libido
- Erectile dysfunction
- Hair loss
- Difficulty concentrating
- Depression and irritability
- Decreased sense of well-being
- Decreased muscle mass
These symptoms range from minor to debilitating. If you experience any of these signs of low testosterone, talk to your doctor and consider hormone testing to determine whether you could benefit from hormone replacement therapy. Not all men who have low testosterone experience these symptoms. If you have low testosterone but you do not exhibit any symptoms, you may not need treatment.
Do I Need Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
If you have symptoms associated with low testosterone, it is important to discuss them with your healthcare provider and get hormone testing to confirm your condition. You should do this before beginning any testosterone replacement therapy because there can be side effects and risks. If your doctor confirms that testosterone replacement therapy is right for you, you will receive a customized treatment plan for your gender-specific needs. Your hormones may be administered with pellet implants, lozenges, a topical cream, injections or through a variety of other methods. Here at Vitality Medical & Wellness Center, we integrate hormone replacement therapy with fitness and nutrition regimens to achieve the best results. Many men who receive testosterone replacement therapy report improvements in energy levels, sex drive, erections, and mood, and some also report increased muscle mass and bone density.
