What’s So Special About Testosterone?

There’s no mistaking that testosterone is a very important hormone. It triggers the onset of puberty in adolescent males and is responsible for a man’s sexual drive. It also regulates mood, muscle mass, fertility, sexual function, and energy levels.

When a man experiences a significant drop in testosterone, everything seems to slow down and feel sluggish.

As men age, testosterone levels gradually decline. Testosterone deficiency symptoms are more noticeable around age 60 and older, but men in their 40s and 50s can also be affected by low testosterone (Low T). Some men barely notice this decrease in the hormone, while others may experience unwelcome changes to their bodies, health, and quality of life.

Top 5 Symptoms of Low T

  1. Low libido. Some men may experience slightly less interest in sex, while others may lose their sex drive altogether.
  2. Erectile dysfunction. Along with a loss of sexual interest, some men with Low T experience erectile dysfunction, also known as impotence.
  3. Mood swings. Low T can cause moodiness, difficulty concentrating, and even depression.
  4. Less energy. Some fatigue and loss of stamina are normal as we get older. We work hard, have families, and generally lead busy lives, so feeling tired isn’t uncommon. However, when a lack of energy, constant tiredness, and frequent feelings of lethargy are combined with other symptoms of Low T, it may be time to get checked out by your doctor.
  5. Loss of muscle, brittle bones. Loss of muscle mass and strength, as well as loss of bone density that leads to fractures (think male osteoporosis), are also associated with Low T.

Other symptoms of Low T can include loss of body hair, weight gain, small or shrinking testes, and even sleep disorders.

Good to Know:

Many symptoms of Low T such as erectile dysfunction, fatigue, and even depression may also be symptoms of underlying medical conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and coronary artery disease. Men’s Health Memorial’s experienced providers will perform a comprehensive health assessment to rule out medical conditions and accurately diagnosis Low T.

If you’re living with any or all of these symptoms of Low T, it’s time to call the trusted professionals at Men’s Health Memorial for a Low T assessment, call (832) 900-2427.

Feel Like the Best Version of You Again

If you have been diagnosed with Low T, testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) can help restore normal testosterone levels in your body and your overall feeling of wellness and vitality.

What You Can Expect

Your Men’s Health Memorial provider team will develop a personalized testosterone replacement plan and closely monitor your health and progress over time.

  • TRT is given as an injection using safe and effective testosterone cypionate.
  • Injections are given weekly for optimal maintenance of steady levels.
  • Over time, TRT replenishes your body’s testosterone levels to improve health and overall wellness.
  • Your physician will monitor blood levels closely to ensure the right dose for you. Dose and frequency of TRT will be adjusted as needed to provide you with optimal results.
  • Most men begin to experience symptom relief in as little as one month, and symptoms will continue to improve over the course of treatment.
  • Remember: TRT is not a one-size-fits-all therapy, which is why we tailor treatment to your specific health needs.

Remember: Low T is more common as men age; however, advancements in hormone balancing treatment can slow down the decline and significantly improve quality of life. Contact Men’s Health Memorial for your low T assessment at (832) 932-24247
