Testosterone is a hormone essential for male health. Low testosterone is a condition in which the testes do not produce enough testosterone for a variety of reasons. Many factors contribute to low testosterone levels such as age, weight, steroid use, lifestyle choices, thyroid dysfunction, pituitary dysfunction, rapid metabolism of testosterone, and varicoceles (varicose veins in the scrotal area). The Y Factor’s goal is to determine the cause of the low testosterone by uncovering the source of the issue and developing a treatment plan to improve the patient’s natural production.
The Y Factor will develop a comprehensive plan to enhance the natural production of testosterone. Our providers will diagnose the underlying cause and develop a treatment plan to improve the patient’s overall health. Often low testosterone levels are caused by an underlying medical condition. The Y Factor’s goal is to help patients reach optimum health and vitality naturally and provide an alternative to the testosterone injection clinics that just mask the problem of Low-T. The Y Factor does not use injectable synthetics testosterone (testosterone cypionate) or pellets.
Here at The Y Factor, we also tailor your low testosterone treatment to your age. Let’s face it, a man in his 30s doesn’t have the same goals as a man in his 50s so why should they be on the same treatment plan?
20-40 year olds:
You’re still in your prime and we want to keep you there, but we also want to make sure your fertility isn’t impacted with any testosterone treatment plans. Low-T is not a normal condition for this age group so our main goal is to determine the underlying cause(s) for your low testosterone levels.
41-59 year olds:
Low-T impacts many men in this age range and our goal now is to make sure your testosterone, estrogen, and dihydrotestosterone are all in balance so you can maintain muscle mass and prostate health. Testosterone treatment will be tailored with a goal of minimizing enlargement of the prostate and screening for the presence of prostate cancer. In addition to creating healthy levels, we’ll also look to maintain good sexual function with your treatment plan.
60-70 year olds:
Life is entering a new phase and you’re ready to enjoy your golden years! During this age range we’ll create a low testosterone treatment plan that minimizes risk for cardiac disease, strokes, and maintains your overall healthy body by focusing on good bone health. Maintaining a mid range testosterone level balance enables men to maintain the right amount of muscle mass to support joints and posture and allow for endurance.
