Do you live a healthy life, but are starting to experience inexplicable changes? Are you frustrated that nothing you have tried seems to help? You may be experiencing a change in your hormone levels. Many men experience changes in testosterone production, which is hormone key to many bodily functions. If you are concerned about your testosterone production, a consultation with our team at Boston Vitality in Stoneham, MA, can help you understand the changes and your treatment options!
What Is Testosterone?
Testosterone is an incredibly important hormone naturally developed in healthy men. It is essential for assisting with many critical processes. Benefits of strong testosterone levels include:
- Better memory
- Better emotional health
- Increased energy levels
- Increased libido or sex drive
- Increased muscle mass
Although this is an important hormone for a healthy, functioning body, it is not immune from being affected by the aging process. As men age and begin to experience andropause, many experiences a drop in testosterone production. Up to 40 percent of men over the age of 45 begin to lose their naturally produced testosterone and suffer the effects of decreased testosterone levels.
Not only middle-aged men are impacted by changes in hormone levels. In fact, men can begin to lose strong testosterone levels as early as their 20s. This may be due to andropause or Low T (low testosterone). Low T can have a negative impact on overall health, such as:
- Depression and fatigue
- Erectile dysfunction
- Hot flashes
- Reduced muscle mass
- Significant decrease in libido or sex drive
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, we recommend schedule a consultation with our team in the Massachusetts area!
What Is Testosterone Therapy?
Testosterone therapy is a treatment to help restore and maintain balanced hormone levels. Hormone replacement therapy can help address many of the frustrating symptoms of Low T. While the results may take some time to fully experience, they do gradually improve and can help you feel like yourself again.
It is essential that testosterone replacement therapy must be conducted under the supervision of a qualified doctor who understands normal testosterone levels and how to prescribe the correct dosage of testosterone for their parents. Our team in the Boston area is led by Dr. Michael Zachareas, a board-certified urologist.
Testosterone therapy is not a one step, one size fits all process. This is a customized treatment method. Blood tests are essential and required to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for testosterone therapy. Additional blood tests and follow-up visits help ensure your tailored treatment includes the correct dosages for a healthy, well-supported level of testosterone.
