LACKING ENERGY AND SEXUAL STAMINA? WE HAVE A SOLUTION TO RESTORE YOUR VIRILITY
WHAT IS LOW-T?
Do you often feel run down and tired, even when you eat well, exercise, and get plenty of rest? There may be more to it than you just getting older. Low testosterone (low T) is a common medical problem in men that often goes undiagnosed. In fact, low T affects nearly 40% of men over the age of 45.
Extreme and persistent fatigue is often just the first sign of low T. Other symptoms may include:
- Muscle loss
- Weight gain
- Erectile dysfunction
- Reduced sex drive
- Sleep problems
- Hot flashes & night sweats
- Extreme irritability
- Hair loss
- Urinary problems
- Memory loss
WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF LOW TESTOSTERONE LEVELS IN MEN?
Starting at age 30, a man’s body gradually produces less testosterone – approximately 1% less per year – for the rest of his life. However, there are other potential causes of low T, as well, including:
- A congenital birth defect
- An injury or infection of the testes
- Alcohol abuse
- Severe obesity
- Extreme weight loss
- Uncontrolled type 2 diabetes
- Sleep apnea
- Certain medical conditions, such as cirrhosis of the liver, chronic kidney failure, severe primary hypothyroidism, or HIV/AIDs
There is help available for low T, but before you tackle the problem, you need to get a definite diagnosis from a qualified physician, like the ones at Atlanta medical Institute.
HOW IS LOW-T TREATED?
At our men’s health clinic, we test for low T by taking a blood sample on-site first thing in the morning when your testosterone levels are at their highest.
A normal range for testosterone in males is between 300 to 1,000 nanograms per deciliter. If your testosterone level is below this range and you exhibit related symptoms, it is likely you have low T. To treat this problem, we will create a personalized hormone replacement treatment plan based on your health and lifestyle, with a focus on getting you back to a normal, healthy level. This may include testosterone supplements, dietary and lifestyle changes, prescription medications, or testosterone injections, patches, or topical gel.
Typically, testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) takes several months to fully resolve low T symptoms. However, results vary for each man, and some patients may begin to notice improvements within a few weeks after starting therapy. You will feel more invigorated, less irritable and tired, and prepared to enjoy satisfying sexual activities.
