Men of all ages can experience low levels of testosterone. These low levels can cause various symptoms including loss of energy and motivation, muscle weakness, depression, loss of libido, decreased mental clarity, decreased sense of well being, and sexual dysfunction. Testosterone levels drop as men get older as a natural process of aging. Known as andropause, testosterone levels begin to gradually decline after the age of 30.
There is no biologic advantage to having low testosterone. Research has shown that maintaining you hormones at an optimal level not only helps improve your quality of life but can help prevent some chronic medical conditions. At Apex Men’s Health Clinic, we specialize in hormone optimization and we can develop your own unique testosterone replacement plan to suit your body’s needs. Our therapies can include injections, pellets, topical creams, and/or oral medications.
Experiencing low testosterone is not always a function of aging. Sometimes, it can be caused by untreated medical conditions or poor lifestyle choices. At Apex, we believe that by only focusing on testosterone and not looking for or addressing these other conditions, a patient will never reach their full potential.
