Testosterone is essentially the hormone that makes the man. In developing male characteristics, it gives men a deeper voice, larger muscles, and facial and body hair. Testosterone also factors into sperm production, fuels libido, aids in red blood cell generation, boosts mood and supports cognition.
As you can probably imagine, having low testosterone, or low-T, can disrupt a man’s otherwise normal mental and physical functions. For example, as men age into their 40s, 50s, 60s (sometimes even their 30s) and beyond, some may begin to show signs and symptoms of low testosterone, such as:
- Decreased sex drive
- A lessened sense of vitality
- Erectile dysfunction
- Low energy
- Decreased muscle mass
- Thinning bones
Collectively, these signs and symptoms are often referred to as hypogonadism (“hypo” indicates “low functioning” and “gonadism” refers to the testicles).
Should you consider testosterone replacement therapy (TRT)?
If you are experiencing the symptoms of low-T, understandably, you may be ready to do whatever it takes to correct them. After all, if there’s a way to enjoy life to the fullest once again, most men would jump at the chance.
Studies have shown that TRT can provide benefits (in varying degrees) for men with above-listed symptoms of hypogonadism, including:
- Improved libido, mood and cognition
- Increased muscle mass and bone density
- Stimulated red blood cell production
If the symptoms of low-T are bothering you, talk to us to see if you are a candidate for testosterone replacement therapy.
