A man’s “manliness”, is almost entirely controlled by the quantity of a magical substance in the body, the hormone testosterone. Testosterone is the most powerful hormone in the male body, responsible for endowing men with their distinctly male characteristics and traits. Although testosterone doesn’t just make men more macho and tough, it is imperative for optimal health and well being as well. As the predominant male sex hormone, testosterone plays a major role in maintaining a number of sought after “manly” traits. Without testosterone, a mans physical prime and health is naturally bound to deteriorate over time. By the age of 30, the majority of men start to experience a decline in their testosterone levels. This decline in male hormone production is commonly referred to as andropause or “male menopause”. Low testosterone symptoms can be mild at first, increasing in severity as testosterone levels continue to decline.
• Lack of energy, motivation and drive.
• ED / sexual dysfunction.
• Decreased muscle mass, strength and endurance.
• Poor body composition.
• Slow recovery time from exercise.
• Poor memory and foggy thinking.
• Decreased enthusiasm for life.
• Depression, anxiety and mood swings.
Testosterone is a very important part of red blood cell production. Without an adequate number of red blood cells, oxygen cannot be effectively transported to different areas of the body (oxygen deprivation). Oxygen deprivation results in fatigue and low energy levels. If you are noticing a decrease in energy levels and increased fatigue then you may be experiencing a symptom of low testosterone.
There are many factors that can lead to erectile dysfunction. Most often there is a severe imbalance in the ratio of testosterone to estrogen, low levels of testosterone and high levels of estrogen. This imbalance contributes to poor blood flow and venous leakage (the inability to maintain an erection). Rather than relying on pills that can take hours to see effects, correcting these hormone imbalances to support optimal erectile function and blood flow will provide peace of mind that you are ready all of the time.
Brain fog, poor focus, difficulty concentrating and problems with short term memory are all common low testosterone symptoms. Get halfway through a conversation to forget what you were talking about? Find yourself in the kitchen with absolutely no idea why you are there? Time to have your testosterone level checked.
Mild depression is one of many low testosterone symptoms. Low testosterone levels are very often misdiagnosed and mistreated as cases of depression, a condition that closely resembles that of low testosterone levels. Men on medication for depression often improve significantly when testosterone therapy is added to their treatment, many feeling their best with only testosterone therapy as most medications for depression have many side effects one of which being decreased libido.
Type 2 diabetes often goes hand in hand with low testosterone. Body fat serves as a major site in men for the conversion of testosterone to estrogen (through the process of aromatization). As testosterone is converted to estrogen, estrogen levels increase while levels of testosterone decrease. Low testosterone contributes to poor glucose metabolism and the onset of diabetes. Improved regulation of glucose can be achieved by hormone therapy which involves increasing testosterone levels and decreasing estrogen levels.
Choosing an educated and specialized provider of hormone replacement therapy, as well as the safest and most effective method of treatment, is very important. While some seek hormone therapy through their family Doctor, this is rarely as comprehensive and effective as a treatment from a specialized hormone Doctor. Family Doctors, if they are even open to prescribing hormone therapy, typically lack the understanding and thoroughness of a hormone specialist.
