Testosterone levels naturally decline as men age. Levels that are too low cause a variety of issues for men that can be remedied with TRT (Testosterone Replacement Therapy). Some of the common symptoms and effects of low testosterone:
Decreased libido (low sex drive)
Erectile dysfunction (ED)
Fatigue and low energy levels
Low sense of well-being
Decreased muscle mass
Lower red blood cell production
Changes in body fat distribution
Increased belly fat
Decreased sperm production
Lack of motivation
When testosterone decreases, it can interfere with many facets of a mans life and have a negative impact on their health. Some symptoms may be mild while others can be more severe and debilitating. Low testosterone levels, also known as andropause, may increase the risk of heart disease, type II diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and erectile dysfunction (ED). Testosterone replacement therapy and hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can help to maintain optimal levels of hormones through compounded solutions tailored to men’s specific needs.
There are several components to testing testosterone levels. Typically, it begins by self-reporting from the patient that they are experiencing symptoms associated with declining testosterone. The physician will complete a medical history form, physical exam, questionnaire, and blood test of the patient to assess their physical and mental symptoms and determine hormone levels. A blood test will check for both inactive and active testosterone levels.
