Low-T Not for Me
Decreased libido and erectile dysfunction are amongst the most embarrassing issues men can experience even though they are surprisingly, quite common. A study from 2006 estimated that around 36% of all men above 45 years of age experience a cluster of symptoms known as hypogonadism, or testosterone deficiency. Hypogonadism can be characterized not only by erectile dysfunction and reduced libido, but also weakness and decreased bone density, loss of body and facial hair, and increased body fat, fatigue and anemia.
The normal levels of testosterone range between 300 and 900 nanograms per deciliter, but testosterone has been shown to reduce with age. Some men are at greater risk than others—hypogonadism odds are higher amongst people with hypertension, diabetes, obesity or prostate disease. Currently, the best way to tackle testosterone deficiency is testosterone replacement therapy.
The aim of testosterone treatment is to restore the hormonal levels in the normal range. Testosterone is extremely important for the functioning of the entire body and most systems. Signs of Testosterone Deficiency
Fatigue and low sex drive are usually the first sign of testosterone deficiency though the symptoms might often be subtle or unnoticeable at first. If you have made changes to your lifestyle such as exercising more often and improving your eating habits but you still notice these symptoms, you might be struggling with hypogonadism. Testosterone replacement therapy can help restore your Low-T levels and tackle the symptoms of testosterone deficiency, helping you regain your sex drive and function, boost your mood and improve your overall quality of life.
