Although it is normal for testosterone levels to drop as men age, low testosterone can affect a man’s health. The rush of new testosterone in puberty builds muscle and bone, deepens the voice, and revs up the sex drive. In matured men, testosterone is the main hormone that gives men a healthy libido, builds muscle mass and helps maintain energy levels.
Testosterone levels decline steadily after age 30. The decline is relatively small, at an average rate of about 1% to 2% percent per year. By middle age and older, all men experience decline in testosterone, but only a small percentage of men do something about it!
What is Low Testosterone?
Low testosterone is defined as less than 300 nanograms per deciliter of blood. The symptoms of low testosterone include low sex drive, erectile dysfunction, mood problems, fatigue, and sleep disturbances. Of all men with below-normal testosterone levels, about one-half to two-thirds report symptoms.
Unlike a woman’s menopause, when estrogen levels plummet over months to very low levels, men’s “andropause” is a gradual decline of testosterone levels over years. The effects of low testosterone can be insidious, even go unnoticed.
Some men with low testosterone levels have symptoms without recognizing them; for example, you may still have a sex drive, but not realize how much it has declined. Men with symptoms of low testosterone can have significant impairment in quality of life and ultimately sex drive. Current medical thinking is that these men should be treated with testosterone replacement.
Low testosterone can be replaced by using a daily skin gel, patches worn on the skin, orally disintegrating tablets, or injections. The general recommendations are to raise the blood testosterone level only into the normal range.
My Anti-Aging MD specializes in medically supervised HGH Therapy, Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and Testosterone Therapy treatments that employ the latest advancements in treatment protocols.
Starting around age 30 hormones decline and individuals may experience symptoms of a low testosterone. If so you may be a good candidate for hormone replacement therapy.
