Men of all ages can experience changes in their testosterone levels. While more common in midlife, even men in the late 20’s can have challenges with maintaining optimal testosterone levels. If you are a male that has noticed changes in your energy levels, metabolism, sex life or mood, you may be suffering from low testosterone levels. Reclaim your life and vitality by seeking testosterone optimization.
It is normal for testosterone to begin to wane in men as they get older. Testosterone levels peak in the teen and early adult years and then begin to dwindle in the 30’s, 40’s and beyond. However, some men experience a more dramatic decrease in testosterone due to hypogonadism or other diseases. When testosterone levels drop, some changes can occur in the body and brain, including:
- Decreased energy and ambition
- Slower metabolism
- Muscle mass loss
- Lower bone density
- Lower libido
- Mood changes, including depression
While low testosterone can cause these symptoms, so can other health issues or medications. It is important to have hormone testing to determine if low testosterone is causing your symptoms before seeking testosterone optimization treatment.
Benefits of Testosterone Optimization Therapy
If your testosterone levels are lower than normal, you may benefit from testosterone optimization therapy. For some men, beginning testosterone injections can have a significant impact on their quality of life and health. Those suffering from hypogonadism and other issues that impact their testosterone production can quickly notice a change. Benefits include improved mood and energy, as well as physical changes such as fat loss, muscle/strength increases and improved sexual libido.
If you have struggled with symptoms of low testosterone, you are not alone. Many men are frustrated when they no longer feel like themselves due to changes in their hormone levels. The fist step is having your testosterone levels tested – if you have low testosterone, you may be an ideal candidate for hormone therapy to achieve testosterone optimization.
