What is low Testosterone

As men reach the age of 30 and beyond, their production of testosterone gradually decreases. This gradual decline in hormone production, often referred to as andropause, unfolds over the course of several decades. In fact, it's typical for testosterone levels to decrease by approximately 10% per decade.

However, if there is a sudden and significant drop in testosterone levels, especially in individuals with a pre-existing borderline low testosterone level, it can lead to the earlier onset of symptoms, which may be a cause for concern.

  • Are you facing challenges when it comes to shedding excess weight, particularly in the abdominal area?

  • Have you noticed a decline in your physical strength and muscle tone?

  • Do you sense a decrease in your overall performance or feel like you're not at your best?

  • Is your sex drive lower than usual?

  • Have you been experiencing a reduction in your energy levels?

  • Are you finding yourself with diminished drive or a general lack of motivation?

  • These signs and feelings could indicate low testosterone levels.

Symptoms of Low Testosterone

  1. Low sex drive: Testosterone is important for sexual desire in both men and women, so a decrease in testosterone levels can lead to a decrease in libido.

  2. Erectile dysfunction: Testosterone plays a key role in achieving and maintaining an erection, so low levels of testosterone can lead to difficulty with erections.

  3. Fatigue: Testosterone deficiency can cause fatigue and a general lack of energy, making it difficult to perform daily activities.

  4. Decreased muscle mass: Testosterone is important for building and maintaining muscle mass, so a decrease in testosterone levels can lead to a loss of muscle mass.

  5. Increased body fat: Testosterone helps regulate fat distribution, so low levels of testosterone can lead to an increase in body fat, particularly in the abdominal area.

  6. Mood changes: Testosterone deficiency can cause mood changes, including depression, irritability, and anxiety.

  7. Difficulty concentrating: Testosterone plays a role in cognitive function, so low levels of testosterone can lead to difficulty with concentration and memory.

  8. Osteoporosis: Testosterone is important for bone health, so a decrease in testosterone levels can lead to a loss of bone density and an increased risk of osteoporosis.

  9. Sleep disturbances: Testosterone deficiency can disrupt sleep patterns, leading to difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep.

  10. Decreased fertility: Testosterone is important for sperm production in men, so low levels of testosterone can lead to decreased fertility.

How we are different

We don’t simply hand over a prescription for testosterone replacement based on your lab level.

When considering testosterone replacement, there are various factors that need to be taken into account for best results.

We evaluate for other hormones that affect testosterone function such as:

  • Insulin

  • Thyroid

  • Estrogen

  • Cortisol

  • Dihydrotestosterone

  • DHEA

We may also do a more comprehensive lab evaluation to consider factors such as:

  • Advanced cardiovascular risk factors

  • Vitamin and mineral levels

  • Markers of inflammation

  • Digestive function

  • Effect of toxins

We also address lifestyle habits including nutrition, exercise and stress management strategies to get the best results.
