We have an exciting trial that we are offering to patients that have low testosterone, are between the ages of 45-80 and are experiencing one of these symptoms below:
- Low libido
- Low spontaneous erections
- Low energy
- decreased moods
- Decreased body hair
- Hot flashes
Men that experience low testosterone can see a direct impact on their quality of life, and that is something of importance for all of our patients. Testosterone controls not only the above listed symptoms, but also bone mineral density, fat distribution, muscle mass, sperm production, and red blood cell production. Hormone function is of utmost important, peaking in early adolescent, and slowly declining throughout adulthood.
While declining of testosterone is normal, there are levels that should be upheld, and hypogonadism is a disease where you aren’t able to produce the normal amounts that you should for your age. Classic signs are recognizing a reduction in the desire for sexual activity as well as body composition changes. Men might notice an overall decrease in energy levels, and emotional mood changes that aren’t normal for their normal behavior.
Exogenous testosterone therapy has it’s pros and cons as most drug products, and should be discussed with your physician on whether you would be a good candidate, however optimizing testosterone for men with hypogonadism can make a drastic difference in overall happiness.
Androgel is a product that can be helpful for this, and something we want to evaluate the effectiveness of. If you or someone you know in the Greensboro area is struggling with this, we would love to talk with the more.
