Address the signs of Low-T with Hormone Therapy
Did you know your testosterone begins to decline in your mid-to-late-40’s? Often even earlier!
Testosterone is the most important sex hormone in the male body. It’s responsible for the development of common male characteristics such as body and facial hair, genital maturation, as well as muscle growth and strength. It also promotes sexual function, sex drive, and influences the production of sperm.
We know that some men’s bodies just don’t produce enough testosterone. This can result in uncomfortable and oftentimes distressing symptoms.
If this sounds like you, then you’re not alone. In fact, the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) estimates that 4 to 5 million American men may be suffering from low testosterone, but only 5 percent are currently treated.
The Signs & Symptoms of Low Testosterone
Recent studies published in The Journal of Endocrinology & Metabolism show a strong link between low testosterone and a range of negative health conditions, such as:
- Chronic Fatigue
- Low Libido
- Heart disease
- Prostate Cancer
- Abdominal Obesity
- Type 2 Diabetes
Certain Medical Conditions Can Contribute To Low Testosterone
In addition to age-related low testosterone, there are certain medical conditions that can cause low testosterone. These medical conditions can begin in youth or in adulthood, and can affect testosterone levels throughout a man’s life.
Some of these conditions are associated with the testicles, pituitary gland and/or hypothalamus (a part of the brain that controls many of the body’s glands). Occasionally, the problem can be genetic.
Treat Low-T With Testosterone Therapy
The signs and symptoms of low testosterone don’t have to be a life sentence.
Many of these conditions can be easily treated with a quick-drying custom compounded prescription gel applied to the skin daily. The restoration of vigor and drive can be life changing.
In fact, those same studies have shown a strong, positive link between testosterone replacement therapy and increased life expectancy in men: among those treated with testosterone, there were fewer heart attacks, cancer, and reduced mortality.
