Don't Let Low Testosterone Get In The Way
Reduced libido is one of the main symptoms of low testosterone. Men who have low testosterone experience performance issues, along with a decreased interest in sex
Constant fatigue is another main symptom of low testosterone. People who have low testosterone may feel like they don't have as much energy as they used to. Despite getting plenty of sleep, men with low testosterone might continue to feel tired through out the day.
Men who notice a shift in their mood, and start to experience depression, may, in fact, be suffering from low testosterone. Testosterone can help to regulate moods. And if a man's body is not producing enough of it, he may start to experience a general feeling of sluggishness followed by depression.
What is low testosterone?
Having low testosterone can diminish sex drive, energy, motivation, as well as having other harmful effects. Normal testosterone levels range from 300 to 1,000 ng/dL (nanograms per deciliter). Anything below those levels and you may start to experience symptoms related to low testosterone. Low testosterone treatment can be administered to boost levels to a normal range and can have a great effect on reducing those symptoms.
How to detect low testosterone?
Testosterone levels vary by age. For example, a testosterone level of 380 ng/dL in a 25-year-old male would put him in the bottom 5% of his age group. An 80-year-old man with the same level of 380 ng/dL would be in the top 5%. A downturn in the circulation of testosterone as age increases is normal, but for certain individuals, these symptoms related to this downturn in testosterone can be extreme.
What is low testosterone treatment?
The most common treatments for low testosterone include the use of a patch or gel on the skin, injection therapy or consumable testosterone pellets. Like many hormone therapies, the changes caused by these low testosterone treatments are slow to take hold, and will typically show results between 2-3 months. Although there are some risks involved, the benefits of this therapy in the well-being of the patient typically far exceed them. If you are suffering from fatigue, a lack of sexual drive or decreased motivation, don’t be embarrassed. Call Discover Optimal Healthcare and receive a low T consultation.
