Did you know? Low testosterone affects 40% of men age 45 and older. However, low testosterone symptoms can sometimes appear in men in their thirties, as well. Because of the nature of these symptoms, many men mistakenly believe they are just experiencing the natural aging process.
If you are experience fatigue, low sex drive, depression, or erectile dysfunction, your testosterone levels may be low.
What is Testosterone, and what role does it play in my overall health?
Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone in men. Testosterone plays a key role in male reproduction and the health of men’s testes and prostate. It also helps promote secondary characteristics, such as increased muscle and bone mass, sexual function, energy levels, focus and concentration, sense of wellbeing, heart health, and prevention of certain chronic diseases.
What is the first step in getting my testosterone levels checked?
Low testosterone is diagnosed by measuring the amount of testosterone in the blood with a blood test. It may take several measurements to determine if a patient has low testosterone, since levels tend to change throughout the day. The highest levels of testosterone are in the morning and will decline throughout the day.
What is causing my testosterone to be low?
As men age, the amount of testosterone in the body gradually drops. There are a variety of causes of low testosterone, including but not limited to: injury or infection to the testes, history of chemotherapy, certain medications, certain illnesses, alcohol abuse, recreational drugs, liver disease, genetic disorders, and obesity. Often times low testosterone levels are caused by an underlying medical condition. Our providers will diagnose the underlying cause and develop a comprehensive plan to enhance the natural production of testosterone.
