Many men notice changes as they grow older. Diminished sex drive, erectile dysfunction and even depression may all result from a condition called low testosterone. Also referred to as Low T, low testosterone can destroy your confidence and make life difficult.

Signs of Low Testosterone

Low testosterone is often misdiagnosed, because it’s comprised of so many symptoms. If you’re suffering from low testosterone, you might notice some or all of these signs:

  • Erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • Low libido
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Muscle loss
  • Weight gain
  • Male breasts (gynecomastia)
  • Hair loss
  • Hot flashes
  • Depression
  • Decrease work productivity
  • Decreased cognitive functioning, memory/ mental focus
  • Problems sleeping

You may not necessarily suffer from all of these symptoms, but any single one of them may indicate imbalanced testosterone levels. If you’re suffering from these ailments, you need to contact us online immediately and set up a low testosterone consultation before it’s too late.

Causes of Low Testosterone

While there is still some discussion about the cause of low testosterone, doctors have found several reasons that low-T occurs. The primary cause is age; as you grow older, your testosterone naturally diminishes. However, some men experience a rapid loss of testosterone that is dangerous to their happiness and long-term health.

Other potential causes of low testosterone include:

  • Testicular injury
  • Testicular cancer
  • Chemotherapy
  • Infections
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STD)
  • LOW cholesterol
  • Drugs (prescription and recreational)
  • Stress
  • Vitamin or mineral deficiency
  • Toxic metals

If you’re aging or experiencing these aforementioned conditions, it’s best to start treatment soon.

Low Testosterone Treatment

Low testosterone affects every facets of one’s life. Fortunately, low-T is treatable. The best, most effective treatment for low testosterone is hormone replacement therapy, or HRT.

In particular, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, provides a safe way to increase your testosterone levels. BHRT uses testosterone that’s biologically identical to your body own creation.

BHRT can be delivered with:

  • Injected pellets
  • Patches
  • Gels
  • Creams

Many men prefer pellet therapy, because it features no day-to-day effort on behalf of the patient. Pellet therapy distributes testosterone evenly over a 4 to 6 month period after a single insertion.

Benefits of Bio-Identical Testosterone Replacement:

  • Improve energy and enhance mood
  • Enhance libido
  • Improve sleep and decrease stress
  • Improve cognitive functioning, memory/mental focus
  • Improve work productivity
  • Decrease abdominal fat
  • Improve recovery from exercise
  • Increase lean body mass (muscles)
  • Decrease heart disease by lowering LDL and increasing HDL
  • Decrease osteoporosis, lower risk of hip fractures
  • Decrease or delay Alzheimer’s disease or dementia
