For 13 million men in this country and millions more abroad, testosterone deficiency is a serious medical issue. If left untreated, low testosterone (“low T”) can lead to increased body fat, chronic fatigue, decreased muscle mass, lowered libido, anxiety, and depression. It has even been shown that low T can decrease one’s life expectancy. Although a man’s testosterone levels naturally declines around the age of 30, unusually low testosterone levels should be a major warning sign for adult men.
Fortunately, there are a number of treatments available for men with this condition. Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is a popular and effective way of treating low T. With TRT, low T patients can see their testosterone levels return to normal and their overall health and well-being improve. Under the therapy, patients intake synthetic hormones to balance their levels. The testosterone can be administered by an injection, a gel, various pills, and even pellets embedded under the skin. No matter what way it is administered, however, low T patients can see signs of improvement in a matter of weeks.
Men with testosterone deficiency should seek medical help immediately. It is important to get the condition treated before symptoms become worse. The sooner the condition is treated, the easier the treatment will be. Most health insurers will cover the treatment, and nearly all hospitals and medical clinics offer it. Doctor offices also offer affordable payment plans for those with limited financial resources.
No matter where you come from or who you are, low T is not something to scoff at. It is a serious (and often underrated) medical condition that can significantly curtail not just your overall health but also your quality of life. Do you and your family a favor and look into testosterone deficiency treatment. The quicker you address it, the simpler the treatment will be.
