Do You have Low Testosterone?

Think you're just "gettin' old?"
As we age, our testosterone levels start to decline. By age 60, hormone production is reduced nearly 50% from early adult levels. Typical symptoms of low testosterone include; loss of strength, fatigue, decreased sex drive, decreased muscle mass, weight gain, depression, sleep disturbances, joint aches, and loss of memory, just to name a few.

Sound familiar? In men, this condition is known as Andropause, often called “Male Menopause.” As testosterone levels decline, many men feel like they’re “getting old” too fast. In fact, many symptoms, once considered a natural part of the aging process: lethargy, depression, irritability, and sexual dysfunction may actually be the result of adult hormone deficiency.

Not Just a Decrease in Production!
Starting around age 35 to 40, testosterone levels (Total Test) in men will decline by roughly 1% each year. It's not only a decrease in production that causes the testosterone deficiency, but an increase in Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin (SHBG). SHBG is a glycoprotein that binds to testosterone and prevents it from becoming active. Only the so-called "Free" testosterone (Free Test) is biologically active. The drop in Free testosterone is even greater, roughly 1.2% a year.

The most common treatment for Testosterone Deficiency is Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). Restoring healthy testosterone levels helps to ease many of the undesirable effects of aging. This includes improvements in bone density and body composition. We offer therapy programs customized to address your specific deficiencies. Through comprehensive lab work, physical examination, and review of medical history, our physicians can determine if testosterone replacement therapy is right for you. Contact us today and see how restoring lost hormones can improve your quality of life on every level.
