Low T occurs when testosterone levels decline (often with age), which can result in low sex drive, fatigue, and decreased muscle mass. Low T can also be at the root of other health problems, like diabetes, depression, high blood pressure, and coronary artery disease. When this happens, you need expert care from a physician who is skilled in the treatment of male hormones.
Doctors specializing in the treatment of Low T
Low T is often treated by doctors who specialize in the treatment of diseases and conditions of the male sex organs, including:
A urologist is a doctor who specializes in the study or treatment of the function and disorders of the male urinary and reproductive systems. Nearly 40 percent of men over the age of 45 have low testosterone, which can be diagnosed using a simple blood test.
An endocrinologist is skilled in the treatment of the endocrine glands and hormones. For men with Low T who are also experiencing fertility issues, your primary care physician or urologist may refer you to a skilled endocrinologist for specialty care.
Treatment options for Low T
If you’ve been diagnosed with Low T, you should visit a health and wellness clinic that specializes in the treatment of hormones, like SynergenX. Our doctors and medical professionals treat Low T with a hormone replacement therapy tailored to your specific needs. We also provide ongoing support and monitoring to ensure you are receiving the optimal dose your body needs to feel its best. Here are common methods of treating low testosterone levels:
- Skin patch
A small 24-hour patch applied to the skin releases small amounts of hormones into the skin.
Topical gels applied daily to the arms, shoulders, or thighs helps increase testosterone in the body.
- Mouth tablet
Tablets dissolved in the mouth twice a day release hormones into the bloodstream.
Pellets implanted under the skin (near the hip or buttock) slowly release testosterone. They are replaced every three to six months.
Weekly or bi-weekly injections boost testosterone levels temporarily.
