What is Low Testosterone?
Low testosterone production, also called hypogonadism, impedes a man’s sex drive and energy levels, increases irritability, and increases body fat while reducing muscle mass. In women, low testosterone can cause fatigue or mood swings. Over time, low testosterone can result in more serious health concerns such as heart disease and diabetes.
What is Low-T Treatment?
There are several means of providing a patient with testosterone. The exact method used will depend on the patient’s preference and the amount of testosterone they need to reach normal levels. Methods of testosterone implementation include skin patches, rub-in gels and lotions, and injections.
Injections are the most common form of testosterone replacement therapy and must be administered by a doctor. A major benefit of injections is that you need them less often, and it is easier to monitor the amount of testosterone entering the body. Our team can also help you with hormone treatments for:
