Testosterone is a powerful hormone in both men and women. It has the ability to control sex drive, regulate sperm production, promote muscle mass, and increase energy. It can even influence human behavior, such as competitiveness.
As men age, starting around 30, testosterone production decreases. Although low testosterone is common, without treatment, it can negatively affect your quality of life, resulting in weight gain, lost muscle mass, and low libido. At Simple Men’s Health in West Palm Beach, Florida, men can access testing and customized treatments for low testosterone.
Low testosterone is a common men’s health problem that occurs when your body stops producing adequate levels of the sex hormone testosterone. Testosterone plays a vital role in sexual health, but it’s also responsible for the development of the voice and muscles, hair growth, and other factors related to your appearance.
All men experience a drop in testosterone. At 20, the normal level of testosterone is around 300 to 1,200 nanograms of testosterone per deciliter of blood (ng/dL). After the age of 30, testosterone production declines by about 1% every year. However, low testosterone occurs if you have less than 300 ng/dL.
Low testosterone affects everyone differently and depends on the severity of the hormone loss. Telltale signs of low testosterone include:
Testosterone deficiency is associated with an increased risk of metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, and mortality, which are associated with chronic inflammation. Some men with low testosterone also experience hot flashes, reduction in testicle size, penis shrinkage, and low libido.
To diagnose low testosterone, Simple Men’s Health conducts a thorough physical exam, reviews your medical history, and asks you questions about your symptoms. Next, they order a series of laboratory tests.
Depending on the severity of your symptoms, this might include a total testosterone test or a luteinizing hormone test. If your Simple Men’s Health provider suspects an underlying health problem, such as a tumor or pituitary gland issue is responsible, they might also order a blood prolactin level test.
Simple Men’s Health uses several Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) treatments to address low testosterone. Depending on the severity of your symptoms and medical history, they might recommend Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), chiropractic adjustments, nutritional therapy, or a combination of these treatments.
BHRT uses plant-derived hormones to restore hormonal balance to your body. These hormones mimic those your body naturally produces, easing uncomfortable symptoms associated with low testosterone.
If your testosterone level is too low, your doctor may suggest TRT. Testosterone is available as:
At Simple Men’s Health, testosterone replacement therapy is safe. There is no association between TRT and cancer, heart disease, or stroke. These are actually side effects due to overdosing by doctors.
When testosterone is replaced to physiological levels, which are essential to longevity, you feel younger, and you experience youthful vigor and sexual vitality.
Chiropractic adjustments improve your posture and promote musculoskeletal alignment. Clinical research shows that good posture results in improved hormone production and a lower risk of low T.
Nutritional therapy encourages healthy eating and a balanced diet. To support an increase in testosterone levels, it’s important you consume foods rich in protein and vitamin D.
