Replacing Lost Testosterone
As men age, their natural production of testosterone starts to decline at the rate of about 1% per year after age 30. This is a common condition among men called andropause. However, even men in their 20s can have low testosterone, so age is not the only factor. Some men experience a drastic decline in their hormone levels for other reasons like adverse reactions to medication, malnutrition, insomnia or poor sleeping habits, stress, overindulgence in alcohol consumption, kidney failure, testicular injury or genetic disorder and most importantly the food we eat and the items in which we prepare our food.
Men who are suffering from low testosterone may experience symptoms such as:
- Poor sleep
- Decreased motivation
- Trouble concentrating
- Decreased muscle mass
- Weight gain, especially abdominal
- Low libido or loss of sexual interest
- Erectile dysfunction
- Depression or mood changes
- Body or joint pain
- Slow recovery after workouts
All too often, men are told this is just “a normal part of aging” and there is not anything to be done for them. Most general practice providers rarely consider testosterone replacement therapy, and instead men are left to suffer with these life altering symptoms.
Although men naturally start to experience a drop in hormone levels as they age, they do not have to suffer with the side effects for the rest of their lives. Through a customized treatment plan developed by an experienced provider that combines lifestyle changes with testosterone replacement therapy, men can regain the vitality they are missing.
At Vitality Wellness Center, we provide a free consultation for every new patient to discuss their symptoms and treatment options. We then run a comprehensive blood panel to determine testosterone levels, assess for vitamin deficiencies, check thyroid function, and look for adrenal issues. Once we have the results, you sit down with our Nurse Practitioner to review those results and develop a plan of care that is customized just for you. We closely monitor your progress so that we can provide the safest and most comprehensive care possible!
