Testosterone is the most important sex hormone (otherwise known as androgens) produced in the male body. It is the hormone that is primarily responsible for producing the typical adult male attributes. According to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 5 to 6 million American men may suffer from low testosterone, but only 5% are currently treated. What about the remaining 95%? Could you be one of them?
The following are some of the symptoms you may be experiencing if you are experiencing low testosterone:
- Fatigue and Lack of Energy
- Decreased Libido and Sexual Dysfunction
- Muscle Loss and Weight Gain
- Depressed Mood, Irritability or Apathy
- Sleep Problems and Increased Stress
- Reduced Muscular/Athletic Performance
If you are experiencing one or more of the above symptoms, you may want to consider asking Dr. Cheatham to screen you for low testosterone so that you can begin treatment and regain your optimal health and wellness! Screenings are very simple lab tests that can be completed in the comfort and convenience of our offices during your visit. Almost all insurance carriers cover laboratory tests and for our self-funded patients, the fees are very affordable.
Remember … Hormones do not decline due to aging. Aging occurs due to the decline of hormones.
An important fact to notate when considering whether to get screened is that lower testosterone levels are NOT “normal for your age”. If your screening results determine you are experiencing low testosterone, testosterone therapy treatment can improve erections and sex drive, restore muscle and reduce fat, and increase energy and motivation. New evidence also suggests that normal testosterone levels are important for reducing the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease and have also concluded that men with normal testosterone levels live longer and maintain increased prostrate health than men with low testosterone.
