Low testosterone is a condition in which a man’s body isn’t producing enough testosterone. This can happen with age or as a result of a health-related issue. Testosterone, a male sex hormone, helps a man develop and maintain muscle mass, sexual features, red blood cell levels, bone density, sexual function, reproductive function, and even a sense of wellbeing. Having low testosterone means a man might struggle in those areas and suffer certain symptoms and consequences.
There can be many different symptoms of low testosterone, also known as low-T. The problem is that it’s easy to confuse the symptoms of low-T with those of other health-related issues, so self-diagnosis is never a good idea. Come see a professional instead like one of ours here at American Male Medical.
The common signs/symptoms of low-T are:
• Low energy, also known as lethargy
• Fatigue or tiredness occurring after supper
• A reduced drive for sex
• Strong feelings of unfulfillment or sadness, or even depression
• A loss of height
• A loss of work productivity
• A loss of physical endurance
To relieve such symptoms, treatment may be necessary, or at least it’s important to see a professional about it. Left untreated, low-T can cause impotence, muscle mass loss, anemia, and other issues, or the symptoms we mentioned above can worsen. Treatment may be important for you.
When a man treats his low-T, it can relieve the symptoms we mentioned, prevent other problems, and have other benefits. Also, benefits can be prolonged with regular treatment. The benefits vary depending on the patient and his needs, but they can include significant and even life-changing benefits like improved:
• Sex drive
• Energy and enthusiasm
• Mental clarity
• Bone density
• Muscle mass gains
• Sleep quality
• And more
You might experience other benefits as well, and they’ll all contribute to a healthier sex life and a healthier, happier life overall. The treatment for low-T is testosterone replacement therapy, and we provide it here at American Male Medical.
The general treatment for low-T is testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), but there are different ways of administering testosterone. There’s topical testosterone, transdermal patches, oral medication, and intramuscular injections, and the injections offer the most consistent results. Results can be extended with regular injections.
TRT with injections can reduce symptoms significantly and help a man get back to the activities and lifestyle he used to enjoy before the onset of low-T symptoms. If that sounds like the kind of treatment you may need, then don’t hesitate to connect with us here at American Male Medical. We’d be happy to see you for an easy consultation at our men’s wellness clinic.
