Testosterone is produced in the testicles in a process that is driven by signals from the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. It is a small molecule that for men, is the central factor in establishing and maintaining everything about you that is associated with “maleness”.
Your body’s natural production of testosterone diminishes with age, with some estimates predicting a 1% decline per year after the age of 30. Some men don’t experience any symptoms with this drop in testosterone production, but for those who do, the symptoms are often misdiagnosed and therefore go untreated. Some studies suggest that fewer than 5% of men with low T are actually receiving treatment!
What is Low T?
Testosterone deficiency can have very serious impacts on your health, contributing to osteoporosis, diabetes, and heart disease. But most men experience symptoms that, while not immediately life-threatening, can have detrimental and even demoralizing impacts on our quality of life and overall wellness. These symptoms include:
- Low energy or fatigue
- Cognitive difficulties and trouble focusing
- Erectile dysfunction (ED)
- Diminished libido
- Depression or anxiety
- Decreased muscle mass and reduced strength
- Decreased bone mass
- Insomnia or changes in sleep patterns
- Increased body fat
- Hair loss or thinning
There are alternatives
You may have gone to your primary doctor about these symptoms, and maybe you’ve even had your testosterone levels checked. But unless your levels are in the bottom 2.5% of the population, they will not be deemed “abnormal” by the established laboratory standards and many doctors will not offer treatment. Treatment that can change your life.
The fact is, it doesn’t have to be this way. Men experiencing symptoms of low
testosterone can have levels that are technically within the normal range, but which are still not optimized. With testosterone replacement therapy from Elevate Wellness Clinic, we can get your levels “dialed in” and deliver measurable improvement in your symptoms and in your quality of life. Many patients on TRT report improvements in their sex drive, increased frequency and quality of their erections and improved overall energy levels. It is also common to experience better moods, increased focus and motivation, increased muscle mass and increased bone density.
Testosterone replacement therapy with Elevate Wellness Clinic is safe, convenient, and affordable. If you are having any of the symptoms described above, all it takes is a simple blood test to determine if low testosterone is to blame. From there, we can get you on the path to looking better, feeling better, and doing better.
