What is Andropause
or Low Testosterone?
Andropause is defined as a collection of symptoms, including fatigue, loss of muscle mass, and a decrease in libido, experienced by men and attributed to a decline in testosterone levels. Testosterone Replacement Therapy at Gurnee Andropause is your solution!
Since testosterone is key for building muscle in the body, low testosterone can cause loss of muscle mass and an increase in fat gain… especially around the waist. Increased Testosterone encourages muscle growth while Muscle tissue burns calories at a higher rate than fat tissue.
For men with low testosterone, studies show that treatment can decrease fat mass and increase muscle size and strength. It’s likely you’ll see the most benefits when you combine (trt) testosterone replacement therapy with strength training and exercise.
While most men experience a decrease in sex drive as they age, low testosterone causes a steeper drop-off than what is normal for most men. Low testosterone can cause a variety of health issues (such as hair loss and erectile dysfunction) that may also inhibit sexual desire.
“Low T” or Low testosterone can result in a number of mood changes. Hormonal imbalances are often to blame for depression, anxiety, and other mood issues. Fatigue caused by low testosterone can also add to these issues. Starting Testosterone Therapy may help to stabilize your mood while fighting depression and anxiety
Studies have shown that men who take testosterone tend to experience an increase in memory. It is important to understand that Testosterone affects many physical processes – focus, clarity, and memory are no exception. Life issues (sex and relationships) caused by low testosterone can also play a role in the struggle to focus.
Low testosterone can result in a lack of energy. If you find that you’re feeling sleepy for much of the day, even after you’ve had a good night of rest, there’s a high chance that a hormonal imbalance is to blame. Many patients find that their energy levels soar after they begin testosterone therapy at Gurnee Andropause.
A healthy heart pumps blood to the rest of the body, providing muscles and organs with the oxygen needed for peak performance. More Testosterone helps red blood cell production through the bone marrow. Low testosterone levels are linked to a variety of cardiovascular risks.
Testosterone plays a huge role in bone mineral density. Bone density decreases as men age and testosterone levels drop. This raises the risk of weak bones and osteoporosis. Strong bones help support your muscles and internal organs, which can boost athletic performance.
Some men begin to lose hair as they age, and low testosterone can also play a role, especially if the balding occurs suddenly. Testosterone Replacement Therapy in conjunction with Medically Prescribed treatments can help to stop and even reduce mens hair loss.
