It’s important at any age to have the right hormonal balance in your body. If not, this can cause complications far down the line. The following article goes over when male testosterone therapy is useful. If you have any of the following symptoms, male testosterone therapy might be effective in treating your condition. We recommend coming into our Denver or Colorado Springs Anti-Aging clinics. It’s here you will go through our assessment to see how qualified you are for an HRT program. This includes a meeting with the doctor and a thorough panel of blood work.
Low Testosterone and Reduced sex drive
Low libido is a common sign in men suffering from low testosterone. When you lose interest in sexual activity, this can mean something much more serious than simply not being in the mood.
Low T & Sexual / Erectile Dysfunction
Inability to perform can be another sign of low testosterone. This may come in the form of erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. If this is a common occurrence, it is likely a sign of a hormonal imbalance in your body.
Testosterone and Weight gain
Body fat increases are a common symptom associated with low testosterone. Studies have shown that men with low levels of testosterone have a higher percentage of body fat compared with men with normal levels. Obesity is linked with low testosterone levels. In addition, low testosterone levels often diminish the desire to do exercise, which in turn makes you less fit.
POOR SLEEPING HABITS AND TESTOSTERONE
Researchers have found that low T levels can affect your sleep pattern by preventing you from enjoying ‘deep sleep’. You may also experience insomnia and lower quality sleep. Lower levels of testosterone also increase the level of the hormone cortisol, which is what keeps you awake. The reverse is also true: poor sleep habits can also lead to lower testosterone levels, which can begin a vicious cycle that can be difficult to break.
HAIR LOSS & LOW TESTOSTERONE
While thinning hair is not uncommon in men as they age, low testosterone levels also contribute to hair loss. If the amount of hair lost is not consistent with your usual circumstances, or you are balding sooner than other men of your age, it may be the cause of low T.
These symptoms are by no means the complete list, but they are common and easy-to-spot enough that you will be able to have a good idea of what changes your body is going through. Male Testosterone therapy is useful when the candidate qualifies for the treatment. If Testosterone or “T” levels are low, (aka Low T), then administering an HRT program addresses the cause of your issues. As a result, amazing results can be witnessed. On the other hand, people who choose to just get on a Testosterone replacement therapy program without a real need will most probably continue to see symptoms.
