Beginning around the age of 30, male Testosterone levels begin to drop. You may accept this decline as a natural part of life and aging but this is simply not true. Why accept this as fate when you could do something about it?
For many reasons whether it be environmental (chemical versions of estrogens), dietary (low nutrient intake), psychological (depression) or chemical (drugs and environmental toxins), testosterone levels are dropping at a precipitous rate in not just older, but younger men as well. In fact, if you look back at historical data your grandfather’s testosterone was nearly twice as high as yours at similar points in your life and it is well documented that testosterone levels have dropped by half over the last 2 generations.
Low testosterone levels can have devastating effects on your health and has been linked to cardiovascular disease, type II diabetes and metabolic syndrome. This makes it absolutely essential that a responsible physician observe the patient, listen to symptoms, then evaluate and treat accordingly to restore his health and vitality. The great news is that all of the side effects and symptoms of testosterone deficiency can be reversed, many of them faster than you would think. Depending on the root cause of your testosterone deficiency treatment plans differ from patient to patient.
Common signs and symptoms of andropause or low levels of testosterone levels are: fatigue & lethargy, low sex drive, decreased muscle mass, depression & mood swings, increased body fat, decreased bone mass, hair loss and lack of motivation. Depending on how low and fast we need to move treatment range from nutrient, herbal all the way up to prescription Testosterone and DHEA as needed.
Men on appropriate testosterone supporting or replacement therapy will experience increases in strength, improved erections, increased sex drive, decreased body fat, improved blood markers and better results in their annual physicals. For many men, this can be life changing.
Don’t accept your symptoms and lack of vitality as a part of the aging process you can do nothing about. Take control of your hormones and ultimately your health and you will immediately begin to look and feel younger.
